Production services bear the unique challenge of maintaining a high level of service from their data centers. When data centers are carrying the life blood of an organization – its transactional data – loss of any service availability can be damaging across customer service, reputation, efficiency, operating costs and more.

As organizations move to capitalize on streaming data as a way to increase performance, a new challenge is introduced: how do I maintain availability in a streaming environment?

Confluent Platform includes Multi-datacenter Replication, an optional, licensed feature that manages your streaming pipelines across data centers.

  • synchronizing two active data centers (active/active)
  • replicate to a global data center.

Managing a multi-cluster or multi-datacenter Kafka environment is made easier, more robust, and secure.
