What's next?

Now that Redpanda is appropriately running in your environment, you can start using many features and configurations on your instance.

Creating an application to interact with your Redapand cluster using NodeJS is a good start for developers.

As a recommendation, add a layer of security to your environment. For that, apply features like authorization and authentication or TLS encryption for Kubernetes, especially in a production environment. Note that changes in the configuration files, not only from a local machine but also for Kubernetes and Docker, require a cluster restart.
