Set your data in motion and modernize your business infrastructure on Azure with Confluent to maximize real time data driven innovation. With Kafka at its core, Confluent has completely re-imagined Apache Kafka for the cloud to accelerate development cycles by up to 75% and lower management costs by up to 60%. Build event-driven services and applications at any scale with the fully integrated Confluent on Azure.

There is a growing need for the ability to connect multiple sources of data, in diverse locations, and have the ability to update analytic applications in real time. This in turn requires businesses to manage complex integration, synchronization, and processing of data that is spread across cloud and on-prem that can delay or limit insights generated from all available data for both real-time and future batch analysis.

Confluent enables you to connect on-prem and multi-cloud data to services like Azure Synapse, CosmosDB, Data Lake Gen 2 storage, and tech partners running on Azure like Snowflake, Elastic, and MongoDB. Running Confluent alongside these key services allows enterprises to quickly connect and process real-time data to power new analytics and applications. Cloud-native attributes like elasticity, ease of operations, resiliency, and more are key to running modern data platforms and are now available wherever an organization’s applications and data reside, making it easier and faster to harness the full value of data in motion.
