Confluent announced that it has successfully achieved a Google Cloud Ready - AlloyDB designation for AlloyDB for PostgreSQL, Google Cloud’s newest fully managed PostgreSQL-compatible database service for the most demanding enterprise database workloads, such as high transaction processing in ecommerce solutions.
Google Cloud Ready - AlloyDB is a new designation for the solutions of Google Cloud’s technology partners that integrate with AlloyDB. These partners have closely collaborated with Google Cloud to add support for AlloyDB into their solutions and tune their existing functionality for optimal outcomes. This designation recognizes the partner solutions that have met a core set of functional requirements and been validated in collaboration with Google Cloud engineering teams.
As a fully PostgreSQL-compatible solution, AlloyDB is designed to integrate seamlessly with existing applications while providing significant performance improvements over PostgreSQL, while also extending into analytics and machine learning workloads. These enhancements complement Confluent’s data streaming platform and capabilities through streaming data through Confluent’s AlloyDB Connector into AlloyDB, and then invoking Google Cloud’s VertexAI predictions seamlessly, harnessing the power of AI/ML directly.
By earning this designation, Confluent has proven our data streaming product(s) has met a core set of functional and interoperability requirements when integrating with AlloyDB, as well as refined documentation for ease of onboarding by our mutual customers. This designation enables customers to discover and have confidence that the Confluent products they use today work well with AlloyDB or save time on evaluating them, if not already using.
As part of the initiative, Confluent gets more opportunities to collaborate closely with Google Cloud partner engineering and AlloyDB teams to develop joint roadmaps.
Confluent Cloud’s suite of fully managed connectors gives you a quick and easy way to connect your data into any cloud service, giving you the ability to experiment until you find the right tool for your use case.
