Confluent, Inc. is collaborating with Amazon Web Services, Inc. (AWS) Under a new five-year agreement.
“To thrive in the modern world, organisations must tap into their data as it’s created,” said Erica Schultz, President of Field Operations, Confluent. “At the same time, they have more data than ever and it is spread across every facet of their business. Through our collaboration with AWS – which is significantly enhanced through this new agreement – we’re making it easier for customers to unlock data in motion everywhere so they can build real-time applications that enable analytical and operational workloads, across cloud and hybrid environments.”
“The strength of our collaboration with Confluent is amplified by our focus on jointly working backwards from customer needs,” said Stephen Orban, General Manager, AWS Marketplace and Control Services, AWS. “Our expanded strategic collaboration allows customers to migrate real-time streaming data workloads to the cloud faster with Confluent Cloud on AWS.”
Companies are looking to accelerate digital initiatives and lower operational costs as they transition to the cloud. For these projects to be successful, organisations need a cloud-native platform for data in motion. Data infrastructure can collect and process a continuous flow of data from any source across the company, helping teams use the relevant data for faster innovation. The deepened relationship between Confluent and AWS will help organisations power their AWS services with real-time data to unlock rich customer experiences and improve backend operations.
“Because of the dynamic nature of the travel industry, we need to build our apps on modern infrastructure that is extremely scalable, highly available, and simple to use,” said Anush Kumar, Vice President of Intelligent Services, Expedia Group. “Confluent Cloud on AWS enabled us to handle 40X traffic spikes with no downtime, and deliver a more scalable, easy to manage and operate event-driven platform that significantly improved how we communicate with customers.”
“Every incremental data topic that we publish or consume with Confluent increases our ability to decouple platforms and increase our transformation velocity,” said Jeff Renz, Vice President, Product Management & Technology, Amway. “With Confluent and AWS, we are getting more value out of our data because it’s moving seamlessly between applications, not waiting in a database to be processed in batch.”
“Confluent and AWS helped us modernise our legacy systems and achieve a level of scale that was not possible before,” said Patrick Franz, Senior Director, Engineering, SunPower. “With Confluent and AWS, we have full visibility into the 6 million IOT devices in our fleet, and can make that data available in real time to build the kind of mobile apps our customers are excited about.”
