Packages

The Confluent Platform provides platform and component packages. The platform packages are used to install all components. The component packages are used to install individual components.

Some of the packages are available in two variants, named by the Scala version (<scala_version>) of Apache Kafka that is included in the packages. Apache Kafka is implemented in Scala and built for multiple versions of Scala.

Platform Packages

The platform packages include all Confluent Platform packages.

confluent-platform-<scala_version>

The complete Confluent Platform Enterprise, including all open source and enterprise component packages.

confluent-platform-oss-<scala_version>

The complete Confluent Platform Open Source, including all open source component packages.

Component Packages

You can install the component packages via an APT or YUM repository. Use these packages only when you need a single component on your server, e.g. on production servers. Except where explicitly indicated, the component packages apply to both Confluent Platform Open Source and Confluent Platform Enterprise.
