Confluent Platform Overview


Kafka at its Core

At the heart of Confluent Platform is the Apache Kafka Core. Confluent Platform adds features and extensions to Kafka that make configuring, deploying and managing Kafka far less complex.

A Tiered Approach to Open Source

Confluent Platform is an open-source and free platform that includes a free trial of a single commercial feature, Control Center. This approach enables developers to take advantage of the strengths of the platform at different stages of their adoption.
