What is Confluent Cloud?
Confluent Cloud is a data streaming platform that is pioneering a fundamentally new category of data infrastructure that sets data in motion. Confluent’s cloud-native, fully managed offering is the intelligent connective tissue enabling real-time data, from multiple sources, to constantly stream across the organization. With 10x the elasticity, storage, and resiliency of open source Apache Kafka, Confluent gets your data to the right place, in the right format, when you need it, to build data products faster and unlock endless use cases.
Confluent has completely reimagined Apache Kafka for the Cloud. With Kafka at its core, Confluent accelerates development cycles by up to 70% and reduces management costs by up to 60%. In addition, Confluent Cloud seamlessly integrates with Azure Marketplace and services, providing a unified management, security, and billing approach. With over 120 pre-built connectors, it simplifies data migration and real-time integration with Azure services, including Azure Blob Storage, Data Lake Gen 2, and Microsoft SQL Server. By leveraging Confluent, you can unlock the full potential of their data platforms, enabling real-time analytics and applications that enhance both customer experiences and backend operations.
Confluent lets you seamlessly integrate on-prem and multi-cloud data with services like Azure Synapse, CosmosDB, and Data Lake Gen 2 storage, as well as technology partners on Azure such as Snowflake, Elastic, and MongoDB. Combining Confluent with these essential services allows you to process real-time data and efficiently fuel cutting-edge analytics and applications. Leveraging cloud-native attributes like elasticity, ease of operations, and resiliency, data platforms can now be deployed anywhere, streamlining the process of unlocking the full potential of data in motion.
