Abstract: Event streams are a real revolution in how we think about and use data, and we think they are going to be at the core of one of the most important data platforms in a modern company. But event streaming isn’t the only paradigm shift we’re in the midst of. The other change comes from the movement to the cloud. Systems built for the cloud are different in foundational ways, and the experience of using these systems is simply much, much better. The goal is to bring that to people’s experience of Kafka.
Confluent Cloud helps modern organizations looking for the fastest and easiest way to start their event streaming journey, providing the industry’s only fully managed, cloud-native event streaming platform powered by Apache Kafka. This talk will discuss best practices for implementing Confluent Cloud, including fundamentals that will help you make informed design choices and build a solid foundation for a successful POC or implementation:
– Cluster Types
– User Interface
– Gitops and Service Brokers
– Disaster Recovery
