Confluent Platform enables unparalleled Kafka performance and elasticity through automated partition rebalancing, decoupling of the compute and storage layers, and infinite data retention.
Auto Data Balancer (ADB) provides an automated solution for partition rebalancing to optimize the cluster’s throughput. ADB determines the best cluster-wide partition rebalancing plan without manual, time-consuming calculations or risk of human error.
Tiered Storage allows Kafka to recognize two tiers of storage: local disks and cost-efficient object stores (Amazon S3). Brokers can offload older topic data to object storage, enabling virtually infinite retention.
