Redpanda is a streaming platform for mission critical workloads. It is Apache® Kafka® compatible and does not require Zookeeper®, JVM, nor any changes to your code. Redpanda is a real-time streaming engine for modern applications, from the enterprise to the solo dev prototyping a React application on her laptop. Redpanda goes beyond the Kafka protocol, into the future of streaming with inline WASM transforms and geo-replicated hierarchical storage. It is a new platform that scales with you from the smallest projects to petabytes of data distributed across the globe.
Decodable + Redpanda
Decodable regards Redpanda as both a source which can send a stream of data, and a sink which can receive one or more streams of data from a pipeline. You could use Decodable to take data from Redpanda and send to an analytical database or machine learning model, or even send back to another Redpanda topic after transformation. With Redpanda as a sink, Decodable can take a stream of data from a messaging system such as Kinesis, a REST API or even a standard database like MySQL or Postgres running in CDC (change data capture) mode. Transforming data between Redpanda topics can be the basis for building sophisticated event-driven microservice applications without writing a single line of code.
