“Confluent offers a complete, end-to-end data streaming platform with all the enterprise-grade capabilities we need to run mission-critical use cases. Over the last two years, we estimate they’ve helped us gain eight or nine months in terms of time-to-market for deploying Apache Kafka.”


“Things like spinning up Kafka clusters and getting prototypes up and running very quickly, Confluent has been really helpful there. Those sort of exercises might take a long time for my team to do if we were doing this on vanilla open source Kafka. With Confluent, we can turn that around very quickly.”

Expedia Group

“Confluent Cloud made it possible for us to meet our tight launch deadline with limited resources. With event streaming as a managed service, we had no costly hires to maintain our clusters and no worries about 24x7 reliability.”

Morgan Stanley

“Confluent has become a lynchpin to harness Apache Kafka for improved operational transparency and timely data-driven decisions. We are delighted with the improvements we have seen in the monitoring of our business flows, speeding up lending approvals, and providing better and more timely fraud analytics."

Big Commerce

“We started wondering, can we offload all of the management of Kafka—and still get all of the benefits of Kafka? That’s when Confluent came into the picture.”

Bank Rakyat

“We love open source, but at the same time we’re not a startup. We’re a large financial institution that works with world-class organizations, and we need services that make it easier for us to sleep at night. Confluent is very reliable; it’s never down. It has become our backbone.”
