Problem: Kafka is a powerful distributed data architecture, but it is incredibly complex to keep clusters running at peak capacity and ensure data availability. Developers and other key resources often get pulled off their projects to deal with scalability or availability issues. Provisioning Confluent allows you to fully offload or drastically reduce Kafka management and keep your key resources focused on projects that drive revenue.
Problem: Kafka does not have good signalling mechanisms in place to help you find and troubleshoot issues within its ecosystem. It's tough to identify and solve problems that lead to lag, downtime, or data loss which can cause parts of your business to grind to a halt. Confluent Cloud and Platform offer the visibility, durability, and reliability organizations need to ensure event availability.
Problem: Apache Kafka is a complex system that requires a lot of tuning to run at peak performance and expertise to ensure its components are healthy.
