Confluent Replicator

Bridging to Cloud and Enable Disaster Recovery

Confluent Replicator actively replicates data across datacenters and public clouds.  It provides a simple and scalable solution to stream data to the cloud, provide disaster recovery (DR) protection, and manage multi-datacenter deployments of Apache Kafka®.

How Can Confluent Replicator Help You?

Build Multi-cloud Data Pipelines

Replicator enables you to seamlessly and scalably replicate all types data to across private data centers or to the public cloud. Replicate your on-premises data to Confluent Cloud to make it available on the public cloud provider of your choice in a continuous and reliable manner. Integrate data and applications across sites, and use the best cloud services for the job, regardless of the data source.

Provide Fast, Reliable Disaster Recovery

Replicator helps automate the steps required for the disaster recovery (DR) failover and for switchback process, thereby lowering the recovery time objective (RTO). With bi-directional replication, organizations begin to take advantage of their distributed enterprise.

Protect Business Critical Metadata

Replicator creates topics as needed, preserving the topic configuration in the source cluster, including number of partitions, replication factor and any configuration overrides specified for individual topics. Replicator also copies the Confluent Schema Registry data, enabling availability of schema information in the event of a disaster recovery scenario.

Replicate at Scale

Replicator scales horizontally by running more workers to distribute the replication load. You can run more workers to increase the replication throughput, which reduces the replication lag between the source cluster and the target cluster and therefore lowers the RTO.
