Sean Prabba, Solutions Engineering Manager, Confluent
As a fully managed service available in the biggest cloud providers, including Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure, and Google Cloud Platform (GCP), Confluent Cloud can be self-serve and is deployable within seconds.
This session will discuss and illustrate and you can easily point your client applications at Confluent Cloud, and the rest is taken care of: load is automatically distributed across brokers, consumer groups automatically rebalance when a consumer is added or removed, the state stores used by applications using the Kafka Streams APIs are automatically backed up to Confluent Cloud with changelog topics, and failures are automatically mitigated.
Confluent Cloud abstracts away the details of operating the platform—no more choosing instance types, storage options, network optimizations, and number of nodes. It is as elastic as your workload, and you pay only for the resources that you use. In true serverless fashion, you just need to understand your data requirements.
