About this Episode

Eric Anderson (@ericmander) is joined by Alexander Gallego (@emaxerrno) for an examination of Redpanda, the source available event streaming platform designed as a drop-in replacement for Kafka. Redpanda’s storage engine is attractive to developers for its performance and simplicity, removing the complexity of running Kafka to scale and deploying with a single binary. Listen to today’s episode to learn more about how Alexander and the team at Vectorized are looking to advance the conversation around streaming into the future.

  • The 3 things that turn a data stream into a data product
  • Comparing Redpanda to Kafka and Pulsar
  • A difference in product philosophy between selling to data teams vs app developers
