Confluent Cloud™ is a hosted and fully managed Apache Kafka® as a service in the public cloud. Deployed in minutes, it is the ideal streaming data service for the cloud-first developer on a mission or the operations-starved organization.Read The Datasheet
Unlike proprietary streaming services from cloud providers, Confluent Cloud™ offers the same open-source Apache Kafka® APIs that you know and love. Thus, you can leverage clients, connectors and tools supported by the Kafka and Confluent communities.
Confluent Cloud is vendor agnostic, so you can “lift and shift” your Kafka applications from any location into — or out of — Confluent Cloud. Another benefit of building on an open source foundation.
Confluent Cloud is a hosted streaming data service that unleashes the productivity of your developers. It takes away the operational burden of running Kafka and lets your developers focus on building streaming applications. Simple, resilient, secure and performant, your team can focus on what matters most — velocity!
The only thing harder than troubleshooting or building a distributed system is operating it at scale. Kafka is no exception. As your cluster usage grows, something is going to fail. Experience the joy of NOT having to manage your own Kafka brokers. And NOT having to put your application into the operations queue for support. Just hit go on Confluent Cloud and get your Kafka running.
