CTO of Otta
Confluent is a commercial company built on top of the open-source Apache Kafka project. Confluent and Kafka have developed a streaming data technology that processes massive amounts of information in real-time.
The streaming database technology was developed at LinkedIn as a way of moving massive amounts of messages. The company decided to open-source that tech in 2011, and Confluent launched as the commercial arm in 2014.
While the base open-source component remains available for free download, it doesn’t include the additional tooling the company has built to make it easier for enterprises to use Kafka. Confluent's value add is in those additional tools, including a cloud version of the product and a marketplace for sharing extensions to the platform.
With Confluent's expanded strategic partnerships with Microsoft, its acquisition of Immerok, and a 2023 cloud platform expansion - Confluent Cloud - the company is living up to its name by rocket-boosting the benefits of Apache Kafka integration for companies.
