Migrate from an existing Confluent cluster to Confluent for Kubernetes¶
To migrate from a non-Kubernetes Confluent cluster to a Confluent for Kubernetes (CFK) deployment, you would need to perform the following steps:
Deploy a new CFK-managed cluster by following the Deployment workflow.
Move topic data over to the CFK cluster using Cluster Linking.
Migrate clients to produce/consume from the new CFK managed cluster.
Decommission the old cluster.
Once all operations are confirmed to be working properly, you can then decommission the old cluster.
