Redpanda is a source available (BSL), Apache Kafka®-compatible, streaming data platform designed from the ground up to be lighter, faster, and simpler to operate. It employs a single binary architecture, free from ZooKeeper™ and JVMs, with a built-in Schema Registry and HTTP Proxy.
Engineered for multi-core
Redpanda was engineered from scratch and written in C++ to extract the best performance out of every core, disk, memory chip, and network byte. It uses a patent-pending thread-per-core architecture to ensure the highest throughput, with up to 10x lower latencies, no matter where it’s deployed: global multi-region cloud clusters, on-prem bare metal hardware, private cloud containers, or at the edge!
Redpanda platform is available as fully-managed service via Redpanda Cloud. It is also available for self hosting as a commercially supported Enterprise Edition and a free (BSL) Community Edition.
