Confluent Cloud とは?

サービスとしての Apache Kafka®、Confluent Cloud は、レジリエントでスケーラブルなストリーミングサービスをわずか数分にて導入可能な形で提供します。Kafka の管理は当社で行いますので、ユーザー側でのデプロイ、アップグレードやメンテナンスは不要です。Confluent Cloud では2種類のクラウドプランを提供しています。

  • Confluent Cloud provides an elastically scalable, cloud-native event streaming service. Through a self-service portal you can start streaming in minutes with no cluster sizing, no minimums, no upfront commitments, and you only pay for what you stream.
  • Confluent Cloud Enterprise provides a data streaming service for all projects including mission-critical production apps. It includes capabilities such as unlimited streaming, service level agreements (SLAs), security and compliance.

Confluent Cloud はどのようなユーザーに適していますか?

Confluent Cloud は、ストリーミングアプリケーション構築を目指して最先端の開発を行う組織、DevOps を必要とする組織、アジャイル/クラウドファーストのデベロッパーや Kafka 開発者に最適なストリーミングデータサービスです。

Confluent Cloud を使用するメリットは?

ストリーミングプラットフォームのパフォーマンスを最も手軽に活用できるのが Confluent Cloud。独自に Kafka Brokers を管理する必要がなくなります。オンプレミスの Confluent Platformから Confluent Cloud へデータをストリーミングしてハイブリッド型のクラウドデータパイプラインを構築し、同時にパブリッククラウド間でデータをストリーミングすることで、あらゆるクラウドを通じてデータを活用することが可能となります。

  • Confluent Cloud offers self-serve access to the rich Kafka ecosystem. Get up and running in minutes and discover hands-on how Confluent Cloud can meet all your streaming needs. Payment is flexible — pay monthly by credit card and cancel anytime.
  • Confluent Cloud Enterprise is proven to deliver 99.95% uptime, one of the highest in the industry. By leveraging the experience of Kafka’s original creators to maximize uptime and service levels, your Kafka system will run with best practices and always stay up-to-date with the latest Kafka version.

どのバージョンの Apache Kafka® を使用しますか?

Confluent Cloud では、独自サービスでなく、おなじみのオープンソースの Kafka API が利用でき、活気に満ちた Kafka エコシステムへのアクセスが可能となります。Kafka を生んだ開発者が構築した Confluent Cloud では、常に最新バージョンの Kafka がご利用いただけます。

Confluent Cloud へのコンポーネントの接続方法は?

All Confluent Connectors are compatible with Confluent Cloud. For detailed instructions on how to connect Confluent Platform components (like Control Center, Kafka Connect, REST Proxy, KSQL, Schema Registry, etc.), see Connecting Components to Confluent Cloud.

What is the difference between fully managed and self managed components?

  • Fully managed components are deployed, upgraded and maintained by Confluent. A fully managed component may be under one of the following release stages:
    • Preview: Fully managed component is being introduced to gain early feedback from customers and is not recommended for production workloads. Confluent support not available.
    • Production & General Availability: Fully managed components at this stage are production ready. Business support is included with Confluent Cloud Enterprise.
  • Self managed components are deployed, upgraded and maintained by customer. Business support is included with Confluent Cloud Enterprise. Support is not included for self managed components available as fully managed in production availability.

Pricing & Billing

How is pricing calculated for Confluent Cloud?

  • Confluent Cloud
    Pricing is based purely on consumption. There are no commitments, no upfront cost and you only pay for what you actually use. Usage will be calculated based on three metrics: data in (measured in GB), data out (measured in GB) and data stored (measured in GB-month). Pricing varies by cloud provider and region.
    Consumption is measured via instrumentation within the hosted product, based on sampling at regular intervals. In the event that Confluent is unable to measure metrics, consumption will be calculated as zero for the impacted timeframe.
  • Confluent Cloud Enterprise
    Pricing is based on write/read throughput, storage and availability requirements (single vs. multi-zone). For pricing information, please request a quote and one of our professionals will provide you with detailed pricing based on your requirements

Are fully managed components in preview really free?

Yes, all fully managed components are free to use during the preview stage so our customers can try them out and provide feedback for further improvements before being released into production availability.

Does the billing dashboard in Confluent Cloud show usage metrics in real-time?

Accrued charges and usage summary in the Billing & Payment UI are not shown in real-time. Delays can be expected from the instrumentation that is used to calculate consumption. As such, accrued charges displayed in the UI at the end of the billing period may not be final due to late arriving data.

Can I pause or cancel my Confluent Cloud subscription?

  • Confluent Cloud is a no commitment, pay only for what you consume service. In the event a user chooses to cancel service, Confluent will provide a final billing statement on the standard date after the end of the calendar month.
  • Confluent Cloud Enterprise subscriptions can not be paused or put on hold. However, you can transfer your data from Confluent Cloud before deleting your cluster. For more information, see Connecting Components to Confluent Cloud.
