About Confluent

Founded by the team that built Apache Kafka™, Confluent builds a stream data platform
that enables companies to easily access data as real-time streams

Background

Confluent was founded by the team that built Apache Kafka™ at LinkedIn and that scaled Kafka to accommodate over 1 trillion messages per day – covering everything happening in a company.

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 Kafka and have led it to impressive industry-wide adoption across several thousand companies. Now we are focusing on building a stream data platform to help other companies get easy access to enterprise data as real-time streams.
