Data Streaming Is Central to the Modern Data Stack

Data streaming enables businesses to continuously process their data in real time for improved workflows, more automation, and superior, digital customer experiences. Confluent helps you operationalize and scale all your data streaming projects so you never lose focus on your core business.

"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."

"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."

“We don’t have the ability to go hire a bunch of engineers to babysit Kafka. Being able to offload those concerns to Confluent is just a major relief, allowing us to focus on delivering value to the organization and not worry about ops or other infrastructure overhead.”
