Confluent for Microservices

An event streaming platform based on Apache Kafka®

A Scalable Foundation for the Event-Driven Architecture

Microservices architectures enable organizations to evolve their systems away from the slow and unresponsive shared-state architectures of the past. Confluent provides an event streaming platform for incorporating data in flight into a lightweight, efficient, and responsive microservices architecture. Confluent is the backbone for event driven services.

Building Services using a Streaming Platform

  • Embrace Event-Based thinking with an infrastructure built to handle streaming events

  • Create a shared source of truth from event-stream datasets

  • Join and process events created by any service, in any location

  • Scale to support 1000s of services
