Providing a robust cloud service for a piece of open source software like Apache Kafka® isn’t about packaging the code up and putting it on some public cloud instances. It’s about taking a core capability and providing it as a true elastic utility. That’s why we built Confluent Cloud—a 10x better, fully managed, and truly cloud-native service for Apache Kafka—to help take data streaming to the level your organization needs today.
Download the “Kafka In the Cloud: Why It’s 10x Better With Confluent” ebook to take a deep dive into how Confluent harnessed the power of the cloud to build a data streaming platform that’s 10x better than Apache Kafka, so you can leave your Kafka management woes behind. Three areas we’ll explore in this ebook are:
- Elasticity: Confluent Cloud takes elasticity to the next level by letting you scale up and down 10x faster and easier than with Apache Kafka—so you can meet customer demand while avoiding overprovisioning and downtime. No more capacity planning, data rebalancing or other burdens that come with scaling your data infrastructure.
- Storage: Confluent Cloud’s Infinite Storage means you never have to worry about Kafka storage limits again. Store as much data as you want, for as long as you need, while only paying for the storage used.
- Resiliency: Confluent Cloud promises 10x higher availability and durability with built-in 99.99% uptime SLA, covering not only infrastructure but Apache Kafka performance, critical bug fixes, security updates, and more.
