Bridge to Cloud: Using Apache Kafka to Migrate to AWS

Bridge to Cloud: Using Apache Kafka to Migrate to AWS

Watch Now

Most companies start their cloud journey with a new use case, or a new application. Sometimes these applications can run independently in the cloud, but often times they need data from the on premises datacenter. Existing applications will slowly migrate, but will need a strategy and the technology to enable a multi-year migration.

In this session, we will share how companies around the world are using Confluent Cloud, a fully managed Apache Kafka® service, to migrate to AWS. By implementing a central-pipeline architecture using Apache Kafka to sync on-prem and cloud deployments, companies can accelerate migration times and reduce costs.

Watch now to learn about:

  • How to take the first step in migrating to AWS
  • How to reliably sync your on premises applications using a persistent bridge to cloud
  • How Confluent Cloud can make this daunting task simple, reliable and performant
  • See a demo of the hybrid-cloud and multi-region deployment of Apache Kafka
