Migrate an Existing Kafka Deployment
Confluent is committed to supporting and developing the open source Apache Kafka®
project. The version of Kafka in Confluent Platform is fully compatible with
the matching open source version and only contains additional patches for
critical bugs when Confluent Platform and Kafka release schedules do
not align. An existing cluster can typically be upgraded easily by
performing a rolling restart of Kafka brokers.
Migrating to Control Center
You can also migrate an existing cluster to take advantage of Control Center. Simply deploy
Control Center on a server, configure the server to communicate with your cluster, add
interceptors to your Connect instance, producers, and consumers, and you’re ready to go.
