Are you planning to scale the underlying architecture for existing applications or continue to build cloud-native applications on Azure? Are you looking to migrate data or to bring data efficiently from multiple clouds to Azure?
To create real-time, event driven applications or build real-time data pipelines, you need a data migration strategy that includes connecting legacy systems with newer cloud-based applications. In this online talk, Confluent and Microsoft will show the phased approach of building applications using Confluent Cloud on Azure. We build the persistent bridge to Azure and show the migration strategies that you can adopt with Confluent Cloud.
