Confluent abstracts away connector infrastructure complexities by managing internal topics, configurations, monitoring, and security so you don’t have to. All while elastically scaling to meet your ever-growing demands. While other cloud-hosted Kafka services may offer managed connectors, they either are not truly “fully managed” – requiring you to take on additional connector DevOps burdens and risks – or lack the breadth of connectors you’ll need for your tech stack.
