How Can Confluent Replicator Help You?

Build Multi-cloud Data Pipelines

Confluent Replicator enables you to seamlessly and scalably replicate all types data to the Confluent Cloud or across private datacenters. Use Confluent Cloud on the public cloud provider of your choice to make your on-premises data available 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

Confluent Replicator is designed to lower Recovery Time Objective (RTO) by facilitating application failover and switch back. With bi-directional replication, organizations begin to take advantage of their distributed enterprise so that data automatically replicates from anywhere. Replicator helps automate the steps required with Disaster Recovery failover and the switchback process lowering the RTO.

Protect Business Critical Metadata

Confluent Replicator creates topics as needed, preserving the topic configuration in the source cluster. This includes preserving the number of partitions, the 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 data center disaster scenario.

Replicate at Scale

Confluent Replicator scales horizontally by running more workers to distributes the replication load. In order to reduce the RPO, you can run more workers to increase the replication throughput, which reduces the replication lag between the source cluster and the target cluster.
