Managed Kafka Connect

Kafka Connect is a powerful component of the Apache Kafka project which forges enterprise grade connections between Kafka and other tools like databases and search engines.

Simplify Kafka Workflows with Managed Kafka Connect

Kafka Connect serves as a robust framework for hosting connectors. An ecosystem of pre-built connectors makes it easy for you to get data to where you need it, in the form that you require.

Our Managed Kafka Connect allows you to reliably and robustly deploy this capability integrating with your Managed Kafka with us, or your Kafka deployment elsewhere, in a clustered configuration which can resist node failure.

Contact us for a free trial, or if you are interested in finding out more about using Kafka Connect with your Kafka deployment.

Kafka Connect Features

Event-Driven Architecture

Kafka Connect enables a fast, event-driven architecture to robustly allow data flow between multiple services.

Scale Without Penalty

Deploying Kafka Connect as a distributed cluster means it can scale with your workloads without impacting your Kafka performance.

Unify Your Data Layer

Make sure data is reaching your analytics and search stack at the same time it's pushed to other parts of your infrastructure.

Development Speed

Pre-built, low configuration connectors and a clean REST API make Kafka Connect a fast way to build robust event-driven architectures.

Community Connectors

Use open source and other connectors built by the community.

Enterprise Grade

Robust connectors can catch exceptions gracefully and can even store them in secondary topics for inspection so you never lose or skip unaware over data.
