5 lessons learned for successful migration to Confluent cloud

Confluent Cloud makes Devops engineers lives a lot more easier. Yet moving 1500 microservices, 10K topics and 100K partitions to a multi-cluster Confluent cloud can be a challenge. In this talk you will hear about 5 lessons that Wix has learned in order to successfully meet this challenge. These lessons include: 1. Automation, Automation, Automation - all the process has to be completely automated at such scale 2. Prefer a gradual approach - E.g. migrate topics in small chunks and not all at once. Reduces risks if things go bad 3. Cleanup first - avoid migrating unused topics or topics with too many unnecessary partitions
