This is the fourth month of Project Metamorphosis, where we discuss new features in our product offerings that bring together event streams and the best characteristics of modern cloud data systems. In the past months, we talked about elastic , cost-effective, and Infinite Kafka. This month, we are announcing everywhere.
You may already know that Confluent Cloud™ is available across AWS, Azure, and Google Cloud, allowing you to access our amazing event streaming stack including a battle-tested version of Apache Kafka®, Confluent Schema Registry, ksqlDB, and Kafka Connect as fully managed services on your cloud of choice.
You may also know that Confluent Cloud allows Azure and Google Cloud developers to use the service via their marketplaces to take advantage of a unified billing model where Confluent Cloud is just another item in their cloud bill. What you don’t know is that this is now possible for AWS developers, too!
Confluent Cloud is now available on AWS Marketplace with the options of Annual Commits and Pay As You Go (PAYG) Confluent Cloud now supports AWS Private Link on our Dedicated clusters, which allows one-way, secure access from your VPC to both AWS and third party services.
