Enterprise-ready Kafka for your business

Confluent was founded in 2014 by the original developers of the open source Apache Kafka solution with the goal of making Kafka enterprise-ready. Today, 30% of all Fortune 500 companies rely on Kafka.

In addition to the open source version, Confluent has developed a platform that implements extensive support, additional features and services for Apache Kafka.

Confluent Kafka Highlights

High throughput

100,000 or 500,000 messages per second are no problem. The clever partitioning and append-only pattern ranks Kafka one of the fastest messaging systems.

Easy management and monitoring

Web-based management of the Kafka cluster via the Control Center

Extensive interfaces

With Kafka Connect, there are over 100 connectors that can be used out-of-the-box.

High scalability & reliability

The Kafka architecture is designed for failover and scalability by default. This is ensured, for example, by automatic partition replication and easy addition of brokers.

Low initial hurdles for analytics with KSQL

Access Kafka directly with SQL and create streaming or analytical reports using proven methods.
