Bangalore: Data streaming platform Confluent, announced new Confluent Cloud capabilities to help organisations easily build a secure shared services platform for data streaming. The shared services architectural model allows organisations with efficient, cost-effective use of cloud infrastructure resources,

With Confluent’s newly added OAuth support, Cloud Client Quotas, and expanded Role-Based Access Controls (RBAC), businesses can drive real-time innovation and widespread access to data streaming without worrying about degrading application performance, increasing costs, or introducing new operational burdens.

“This release helps organisations connect and stream data from across their business in the most cost-effective and safest way possible. A secure, shared services platform for data streaming saves valuable time and resources while ensuring data and applications are safe and easily accessible across clouds,” said Shaun Clowes, Chief Product Officer of Confluent.

With the current market environment, organisations are looking to minimize costs and reduce infrastructure spending. Yet, businesses often manage hundreds of applications spread across different business units and teams, making it extremely difficult to keep operating expenses under control.

“Businesses are looking for ways to efficiently run all of their applications side-by-side to help overcome rising infrastructure costs and operational burdens, and a shared services model has become essential for large businesses to scale their data platforms in a cost-effective way,” said Amy Machado, IDC’s Research Manager – Data Streaming Pipeline.

“Confluent bundling of their Client Quotas, OAuth support, and expanded Role-Based Access Controls capabilities provides enterprise-level security across services and individuals, delivering a path for organisations to expand data streaming adoption in a safe, secure, and cost-effective manner,” added Machado.

A shared services model enables organisations to run multiple applications on one cluster, saving infrastructure costs and simplifying operations.

With this release, Confluent Cloud makes implementing this model easier with seamless identity management integrations, stronger access controls, and precise resource utilisation controls for an enterprise-wide, multi-tenant implementation. These new shared services capabilities help to run apps at the same time and cut infrastructure and authentication resource needs.
