Kafka without Zookeeper??

Zookeeper is an open source coordination service. Apache Kafka can’t work without Zookeeper as it handles lot of things. Few of those are given below

Leader Detection
Commiting offset
Node status
Identifies when a new join or leaves.
Serves the client request

So if the Zookeeper is down, all the above tasks wont be happened. so it leads to major issues. So we have to use Zookeeper cluster and not a single zookeeper node
