Confluent Cloud とは?

Apache Kafka® as a service, Confluent Cloud delivers a resilient, scalable streaming service deployable in minutes. We’ll manage Kafka for you so that don’t have to deploy, upgrade and maintain. Confluent Cloud offers two cluster options:

  • Standard: Start streaming in minutes with a real-time event streaming platform that provides Apache Kafka made serverless. There is no need to worry about pre-provisioning or managing a cluster, it elastically scales up to 100MBps to meet your workload demands and you only pay for what you use with consumption-based pricing.
  • Dedicated: Stream without limits and with full confidence with a service designed to meet your specific event streaming needs. Dedicated setups offer the option to leverage VPC peering as a way to provide private networking connectivity between your clients and Confluent Cloud.

Confluent Cloud はどのようなユーザーに適していますか?

Confluent Cloud は、ストリーミングアプリケーション構築を目指して最先端の開発を行う組織、DevOps を必要とする組織、アジャイル/クラウドファーストのデベロッパーや Kafka 開発者に最適なストリーミングデータサービスです。

Confluent Cloud を使用するメリットは?

Confluent Cloud is the easiest way to harness the performance of an event streaming platform, saving you from having to manage your own Kafka brokers. You can stream data from your on-premises Confluent Platform to Confluent Cloud to build a hybrid cloud data pipeline. At the same time, you can stream data between public clouds and make your data available in real time across any cloud.

どのバージョンの Apache Kafka® を使用しますか?

Confluent Cloud では、独自サービスでなく、おなじみのオープンソースの Kafka API が利用でき、活気に満ちた Kafka エコシステムへのアクセスが可能となります。Kafka を生んだ開発者が構築した Confluent Cloud では、常に最新バージョンの Kafka がご利用いただけます。

Confluent Cloud へのコンポーネントの接続方法は?

All Confluent Connectors are compatible with Confluent Cloud. For detailed instructions on how to connect Confluent Platform components (like Control Center, Kafka Connect, REST Proxy, KSQL, Schema Registry, etc.), see Connecting Components to Confluent Cloud.

What is the difference between fully managed and self managed components?

  • Fully managed components are deployed, upgraded and maintained by Confluent. A fully managed component may be under one of the following release stages:
    • Preview: Fully managed component is being introduced to gain early feedback from customers and is not recommended for production workloads. Confluent support not available.
    • Production & General Availability: Fully managed components at this stage are production ready.
  • Self managed components are deployed, upgraded and maintained by customer. Customers with Business support and above can request support for self managed components. Support in not included for self managed components that are available as fully managed components in production availability.

Pricing & Billing

How is pricing calculated for Confluent Cloud?

  • Standard
    Pricing is based purely on consumption. There are no commitments, no upfront cost and you only pay for what you actually use. Usage will be calculated based on three metrics: data in (measured in GB), data out (measured in GB) and data stored (measured in GB-month). Pricing varies by cloud provider and region.
    Consumption is measured via instrumentation within the hosted product, based on sampling at regular intervals. In the event that Confluent is unable to measure metrics, consumption will be calculated as zero for the impacted timeframe.
  • Dedicated
    Pricing is based on write/read throughput, storage and availability requirements (single vs. multi-zone). For pricing information, please request a quote and one of our professionals will provide you with detailed pricing based on your requirements

What is the pricing for fully managed components?

All fully managed components are free to use during the preview stage. Pricing details are released when a component transitions to production availability. Available fully managed components are:

  • Fully managed Schema Registry: Included with service. Schema version limits apply.
  • Fully managed KSQL in preview: Free
  • Fully managed Connectors in preview: Free

Does the billing dashboard in Confluent Cloud show usage metrics in real-time?

Accrued charges and usage summary in the Billing & Payment UI are not shown in real-time. Delays can be expected from the instrumentation that is used to calculate consumption. As such, accrued charges displayed in the UI at the end of the billing period may not be final due to late arriving data.

Can I pause or cancel my Confluent Cloud subscription?

  • Standard setup has the option to go without commitment. In the event a user chooses to cancel service, Confluent will provide a final billing statement on the standard date after the end of the calendar month.
  • Dedicated setup requires a subscription that can not be paused or put on hold. However, you can transfer your data from Confluent Cloud before deleting your cluster. For more information, see Connecting Components to Confluent Cloud.

What happens if I use less than $50 each month?

You will be billed $0 for the month. Any of the remaining $50 usage discount expires at the end of each calendar month. To see your balance for each month, please visit the Billing & payment in the Confluent Cloud UI after you have signed up.

As an existing Confluent Cloud user can I also get up to $50 free usage?

After I sign up, how do I cancel my account?
