About Talend Control Plane and Data Plane


Talend's Control Plane and Data Plane solution provides SaaS capabilities and experience on customer-controlled infrastructure.

The offering addresses the needs of enterprise and federal organizations that have strict policies prohibiting processing data in cloud-based solutions.

  • Talend Data Plane consists of logical entities created in Talend Management Console by Talend Cloud users, Data Plane environments for processing resources, and runtime services operating as Kubernetes clusters, connected to Talend Cloud and associated with this logical entity.
  • Talend Control Plane consists of Talend Management Console and its API services used to manage users, tasks, and their ecosystems including Data Planes.

Designed for long-term use, Talend Data Plane is intended to serve as a unique infrastructure to simplify task executions, concealing the complexity of standard Talend engines.

For the current Beta version, only Data Integration Job tasks are supported.

This feature is available as a private beta version. To participate in Early Adopter Programs for it, you can submit a request through Talend Support portal. Alternatively, you can contact your sales representative or customer success team for assistance.

The following diagram describes the architecture of Talend Control Plane and Data Plane.

The architecture of control plane and data plane

In this architecture, you only need to use Talend Cloud as the Control Plane to manage data operations. Talend Management Console, the core part of Talend Control Plane, provides UI features and API services for this purpose. Behind the scenes, Talend Cloud knows how to communicate with its data processing platform and the Data Plane controller hosted there, functioning as a Kubernetes control plane. This enables efficient management of Talend Data Planes, handling processes such as deploying Data Plane environments on a registered customer-managed Kubernetes cluster and ensuring secure data processing in those environments.
