Today, we're excited to announce the release of Confluent Platform 7.3. Building on top of the innovative feature set announced in recent releases, the latest version reinforces our key product pillars by bringing more of the cloud-native experience of Confluent Cloud to self-managed environments, enabling data streaming everywhere, and bolstering the platform with a complete feature set.
This release brings three primary benefits to enable this vision:
- Easily bridge legacy systems to the cloud with certified IBM MQ Premium Connectors for z/OS
- Reduce TCO and operational burden with increased DevOps automation through Confluent for Kubernetes 2.5 and replica rack mixing for Multi-Region Clusters
- Accelerate the development of stream processing pipelines with pause and resume functionality for persistent queries through ksqlDB 0.28
