Event-Driven Microservices Communication

Microservices architectures enable organizations to evolve their systems away from slow, unresponsive shared-state architectures of the past. Confluent provides an event streaming platform for seamless data flow and real-time microservices communication between all your apps, systems, and data stores. Learn more about event-driven microservices architecture with the complete guide.

From Monolith to Microservices

Why Microservices?

Microservice architectures allow applications to be built as a collection of small, independent, autonomous services with asynchronous communication. Because they’re highly maintainable, lightweight, and testable, they provide the ideal architecture for agile, flexible, and scalable development across different organizational constraints.

Challenges with Microservices

A large application delivered as a network of small microservices requires real-time inter-service communication to function as a single application. As the number of microservices increases, this architecture becomes even more challenging, introducing requirements around continuous integration and delivery, scalability, and resiliency without increasing latency, network, and processing costs.

Effective Inter-Service Communication

While there are numerous microservices communication solutions, event-driven microservices provides the most seamless and decoupled separation of concerns, increasing the agility of your business while making your data accessible to customers and users.

Get Seamless Event-Driven Microservices with Confluent

Confluent modernizes any system with event-driven architecture. The second an event happens, services update data in real-time for seamless integration, data consistency, and scalable, responsive microservices orchestration.

Scale the Organization

Event-driven microservices architecture allows decoupled systems from different business units to work together with minimal coordination


Free up engineers and IT from endless monitoring, configurations, and maintenance. Save on development costs and improve organizational efficiency

Real-Time Event Streams

Facilitate real-time, inter-service communication and event streaming without sacrificing data quality, consistency, or security.

Modernize with Agility

Seamless inter-service communication between containers and applications help your org deliver maximum value without undue dependence on monolithic, legacy systems

How Confluent Works

A single source of truth for all your services, data, apps, and systems

Application architecture is shifting from monolithic enterprise systems to flexible, event-driven approaches. With Confluent, real-time data can be consumed as continuous streams of data before they’re even requested. Confluent's ability to ingest, integrate, and react to in-stream events extends capabilities beyond other microservice communication, application integration, and streaming data platforms.
