Yes but what happens when there are two or more clusters?  Does Strimzi support creation of multiple Kafka clusters in one kubernetes cluster?

Yes, of course.


Think of these clusters as "tenants".

  If so, then those clusters may require different user policies (even if Strimzi doesn't support that yet).

Each Kafka cluster has a distinct set of users, topics, policies, etc. Nothing would be shared.


Now imagine traffic flowing into the Kube cluster.  If the kafka clusters become overloaded, is there a way to share traffic fairly, without soliciting more Kubernetes cluster resources.
