BUILT FROM SCRATCH

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.

SIMPLICITY AND PERFORMANCE AT ITS CORE

The Redpanda platform is your easy button for streaming data! It comes built in with a human-friendly CLI, and a rich UI that simplifies working real-time data. Its powerful nature gives you up to 10x lower latencies and reduces your total costs by 6x—without sacrificing data safety!

Redpanda node

Redpanda nodes are self-sufficient with everything you need built in. Say goodbye to external dependencies (like JVM or KRaft) and hello to rapid boot times, simpler CI/CD integration, and reliable production environments.

Redpanda Keeper (rpk)

Redpanda Keeper (rpk) is a command line interface (CLI) to easily manage and tune your Redpanda clusters. You can install this single binary as a standalone tool for self-hosted, cloud, and K8s environments.

Redpanda Console

Redpanda Console is a developer-friendly UI for managing your Redpanda or other Kafka-compatible clusters. It gives you comprehensive Kafka administration, enhanced data observability, and secure access controls (including SSO, RBAC, and Kerberos support).
