Confluent is so much more than Apache Kafka®

Used by over 70% of the Fortune 500, Apache Kafka has become the foundational platform for data in motion, but self-supporting the open source project puts you in the business of managing low-level data infrastructure. That’s why modern businesses choose Confluent, so they can keep their focus where it matters. With Kafka at its core, Confluent offers a more complete, cloud-native platform to set your data in motion, available everywhere your data and applications reside.
