Project Metamorphosis: Unveiling the next-gen event streaming platformLearn More

Our Story

Founded by the team that originally created Apache Kafka, Confluent builds an event streaming platform
that enables companies to easily access data as real-time streams


From Idea To Industry Movement

Every byte of data has a story to tell, something of significance that will inform the next thing to be done. In a data-driven enterprise, how we move our data becomes nearly as important as the data itself. With greater speed and agility, data’s value increases exponentially.

From its very early days, we have open-sourced Apache Kafka ® and have led it to impressive industry-wide adoption across several thousand companies. Now we are focusing on building an event streaming platform to help other companies get easy access to enterprise data as real-time streams.
