Deploy the DataStax Connector in distributed mode

Creates a new DataStax Apache Kafka™ Connector running on a Distributed Mode worker.

Use distributed mode with multiple workers in production environments, to allow multiple instances of the DataStax Apache Kafka™ Connector to run as a group on one or more workers. Distributed mode automatically balances workload, allows dynamic scale up or down, and offers fault tolerance for active tasks, configuration, and offset commit data.

The DataStax Connector download package contains a sample distributed mode sample configuration file (dse-sink-distributed.json.sample).
