Adrian Bridgwater Adrian Bridgwater Profile: Adrian Bridgwater


Instaclustr has announced Kafka-as-a-Service in bid to provide an easier route to the real-time data streaming platform

An open source player from the start, the e-dropping Instaclustr specifies that this release follows an ‘early access programe’ that saw a handful of Instaclustr users deploy the Kafka-as-a-Service solution to manage high volume data streams in real-time.

Apache Kafka is an open source project providing distributed processing of continuous data streams.

The managed Kafka offering follows provisioning and management patterns used to deliver other open source technologies provided through the Instaclustr platform – including Apache Cassandra, Apache Spark, Apache Lucene and Elassandra.

The Kafka platform itself is also backed by data technologies designed to deliver scalability, high performance and uninterrupted availability.

“We believe providing Kafka-as-a-Service will be uniquely beneficial to enterprises looking to take advantage of this powerful data streaming technology,” said Peter Nichol, CEO, Instaclustr. “Our expertise with Kafka combined with our 20 million node hours under management make Instaclustr the most trusted and experienced Kafka service provider in the market. We’re excited to invite all customers and interested organizations to get the most out of what Kafka has to offer with our newest managed service.”

Additionally, Instaclustr provides customers with a SOC2-certified Kafka managed service for data management and client privacy.

Kafka can be run as a standalone managed service or integrated with the other open source data management technologies that Instaclustr provides. It is available within a choice of cloud environments, including AWS, Microsoft Azure, Google Cloud Platform and IBM Cloud.
