Hybrid Deployment of Confluent Platform and Confluent Cloud using Confluent for Kubernetes

Confluent for Kubernetes (CFK) provides cloud-native automation for deploying and managing Confluent in many hybrid scenarios.

When you are deploying Confluent Platform components to be connected to Confluent Cloud, provide the basic configuration required in the Confluent Platform component CRs:

  • The Confluent Cloud component endpoints
  • The Confluent Cloud key and password in the format that each respective Confluent Cloud component requires for authentication credentials

See the example GitHub scenarios listed below for details.

There might be additional information required, such as TLS certificates, depending on your deployment settings.

Refer to the following configuration examples of the hybrid deployment of Confluent Platform connecting to Confluent Cloud:
