Redpanda Releases Streaming Data Platform as a Fully Managed, Pay-as-you-go Service 

Redpanda is introducing Redpanda Serverless, a fully managed, pay-as-you-go edition of its cost-effective streaming data platform that empowers developers to get started with streaming data in seconds and to automatically scale the service up or down to match their data workloads.

As with all Redpanda products, Redpanda Serverless is fully Apache Kafka API-compatible, ensuring it works with the complete Kafka ecosystem without requiring changes to application code. 

“The magic of Redpanda Serverless is its ability to create a globally available cluster in the blink of an eye,” said Redpanda CEO and founder Alex Gallego. “Engineered from the ground up for massive multi-tenancy, speed and performance, Redpanda Serverless is the most cost effective and simplest way to get started with streaming, whether you are a solo dev just getting started or an expert at a large enterprise looking to absorb spikes and scale to zero during downtime.”

With Redpanda Serverless, developers will be able to tap into the Redpanda streaming data ecosystem to build new real-time applications.

Redpanda collaborates with leading companies in event-driven application design, stream processing, databases, and real-time analytics including:

This new serverless offering rounds out Redpanda’s fully managed cloud deployment options, which include a dedicated Redpanda Cloud service as well as a Bring Your Own Cloud (BYOC) option.

An industry first, Redpanda BYOC solves data sovereignty in the cloud by keeping the user’s data and underlying security credentials in the user’s cloud infrastructure. Redpanda also offers self-hosted Redpanda Enterprise and a freely available Redpanda Community edition.  

Redpanda Serverless is available as a free 14-day trial. Thereafter, the product is available within an affordable, usage-based pricing model.
