5 Lessons Learned for Successful Migration to Confluent Cloud

Confluent Cloud makes Devops engineers lives a lot more easier. Yet moving 1500 microservices, 10K topics and 100K partitions to a multi-cluster Confluent cloud can be a challenge. In this talk you will hear about 5 lessons that Wix has learned in order to successfully meet this challenge.

These lessons include:

  1. Automation, Automation, Automation - all the process has to be completely automated at such scale
  2. Prefer a gradual approach - E.g. migrate topics in small chunks and not all at once. Reduces risks if things go bad
  3. Cleanup first - avoid migrating unused topics or topics with too many unnecessary partitions
