Confluent, Inc., the platform to set data in motion, is launching Confluent for Kubernetes, a platform purpose-built to bring cloud-native capabilities to data streams in private infrastructures.
To make it easier and faster to harness the value of data in motion across an entire organization, Confluent drew on its expertise managing thousands of Apache Kafka clusters in Confluent Cloud to offer the same cloud-native experience for on-premises environments, according to the vendor.
These cloud-native capabilities are key to running modern data platforms and are now available wherever an organization’s applications and data reside. Within minutes, it’s now possible to build a private cloud Kafka service that powers applications that are increasingly critical to how organizations thrive.
“To compete in the digital realm, organizations need to quickly deliver personalized customer experiences and real-time operations, which are only possible with access to data from all environments and cloud-native advantages,” said Ganesh Srinivasan, chief product and engineering officer, Confluent. “For organizations that need to operate on premises, we’re bringing the benefits of cloud computing to their private infrastructure with Confluent for Kubernetes. Now, any company can build a private cloud service to move data across their business regardless of its environment.”
With the launch of Confluent for Kubernetes, Confluent brings together the cloud-native advantages learned from Confluent Cloud with the control and customization from self-managing their private infrastructure in on-premises environments.
So whether an organization is transitioning to the cloud or needs to keep workloads on premises, they can take full advantage of Confluent for Kubernetes’ cloud-native capabilities, including a declarative API to deploy and operate Confluent.
The platform also makes moving applications to the public cloud easier by seamlessly migrating workloads to wherever the business needs them with the ability to connect and share data with Confluent Cloud.
Other features include:
- Enhanced reliability
- Automated elasticity
- Simplified infrastructure management
