Engineered from the ground up for today's architecture

No ZooKeeper® icon

No ZooKeeper®

We eliminated Zookeeper to streamline operations. Redpanda requires no code changes. Plug-and-play all your existing applications, connectors, and the entire ecosystem.

Built for performance icon

Built for performance

Redpanda is a new storage engine, optimized for streaming data, using a thread-per-core architecture focused on delivering stable tail-latencies. Using true async interfaces, Redpanda can saturate any device.

Do more with less icon

Do more with less

Redpanda takes advantage of every core, memory, disk and network byte. Designed from the ground up in C++ to extract the most value from your infrastructure.

Safe by default icon

Safe by default

Redpanda leverages the Raft consensus algorithm for managing the replicated log, giving you sound primitives for configuration and data-replication. No matter the scale, we keep your data safe.

Self tuning icon

Self tuning

Free yourself from the tuning whack-a-mole. Redpanda Keeper (RPK) automatically tunes your kernel to yield the optimal settings for your hardware+kernel+redpanda combination, every time.

Wasm-based transforms icon

Wasm-based transforms

Transform data with our WebAssembly-based engine. Implement simple use cases like data scrubbing or enrichment without complex processing tools.

What our customers are saying about Redpanda

Akamai logo

Redpanda is what I wished I had ten years ago. Simple, fast, reliable and compatible with all my existing Kafka code.

Sandy Wilbourn – VP Carrier Division, Akamai

Alpaca logo

Redpanda helped us grow from the hundreds of millions of dollars in trading per day to the billions of dollars in trading (per day). We're also able to reduce the average order processing time from 250ms down to 2.5 ms, a two orders of magnitude, performance improvement.

Raja Bhatia – VP Engineering, Alpaca

The Seventh Sense logo

Redpanda is simple to use, easy to operate and extremely fast. Switching from Kafka to Redpanda dramatically lowered development overhead, while pipelines feeding Clickhouse "just worked" and moved our I/O bottleneck back to where it belongs -- the disks.

Erik LaBianca – CTO, The Seventh Sense

Zenly logo

We care about reliability and performance at Zenly, so no ZooKeeper and 10x faster was a no brainer. What excites me the most is the WebAssembly feature, as it enables us to create a "Data Firewall", the last mile of access, transforms and policy.

Jean-Baptiste – Head of Infrastructure Engineering, Zenly
