What is Confluent Cloud?

Confluent Cloud is a fully managed, truly cloud-native Apache Kafka® service for integrating and processing all of your data in real-time, no matter where it lives. With Confluent's fully managed cloud service on Azure Marketplace, you can eliminate the burdens and risks of self-managing Kafka and focus more time on building apps that differentiate your business.

With Kafka at its core, Confluent has completely reimagined Apache Kafka for the cloud to accelerate development cycles by up to 70 percent and lower management costs by up to 60 percent. Fully integrated with AzureMarketplace and services, Confluent Cloud unifies management, security, and billing while helping quickly migrate and connect data in real time to Azureservices including Azure Blob Storage, Data Lake Gen 2, Microsoft SQL Server, and more with more than 120 pre built connectors. This helps enterprises modernize their data platforms to power real time analytics and applications to improve customer experiences and backend operations.

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.
