Migrating from Kafka services to Confluent

Get the White Paper

Apache Kafka® is a widely adopted open-source data streaming technology, but as organizations expand their Kafka footprint, challenges like scalability, performance, and security emerge. Confluent offers a cloud-native, complete data streaming platform that addresses these challenges, enabling organizations to accelerate innovation by freeing technical teams from low-level infrastructure.

One of the most common questions we hear from organizations is, “How do we migrate from our open-source Apache Kafka deployment to Confluent without any downtime?” Truthfully, the answer is, it really depends on your specific environment.

This can make migrations seem daunting, but they don’t have to be. This kit aims to instill confidence in those contemplating adopting Confluent. Think of this as your comprehensive guide that demonstrates how migrations are achievable (and not so scary).

While the content will focus primarily on migrations from open-source Kafka, most of the concepts can be applied when migrating from another messaging platform or a hosted or partially managed Kafka service. In this kit, you’ll find:

  1. Best practices migration handbook that provides a “how to” framework for migrating from an existing Apache Kafka deployment
  2. Information about certified partner programs for additional Kafka expertise
  3. Real-life customer success stories that detail their personal migration journeys
