    Apache Pulsar - distributed pub-sub messaging system

    So many tools out there, its just which one do you like, I guess. I like Kafka. Works for our environment and we have a few clusters. People have brought up Cribl to replace our kafka (havent really looked into Cribl and we also run NiFi). I have even heard , which seems to be almost another flavor of Kafka.

  • FireScroll

    The config database to deploy everywhere. A highly available multi-region KV database for massive read concurrency and low latency.

    I’ve recently been using Redpanda extensively for FireScroll. I’ve always avoided Kafka due to the sum of all small issues: JVM, Zookeeper, and many more small things that summed to me using NATS. Redpanda has simply removed all those barriers. Their console, HTTP proxy, and cli make it easy to manage. Kafka is notorious for being immensely difficult to work with.
