Redpanda is the real-time engine for modern apps. Tuesday, Nov 17, 2020



Documentation Slack Twitter Go build-test

Redpanda is a streaming platform for mission critical workloads. Kafka® compatible, No Zookeeper®, no JVM, and no code changes required. Use all your favorite open source tooling - 10x faster.

We are building a real-time streaming engine for modern applications - from the enterprise to the solo dev prototyping a react application on her laptop. We go beyond the Kafka protocol, into the future of streaming with inline WASM transforms and geo-replicated hierarchical storage. A new platform that scales with you from the smallest projects to petabytes of data distributed across the globe.

Getting Started

Prebuilt Packages

We recommend using our free & prebuilt stable releases below.

On MacOS

Simply download our rpk binary here. We require Docker on MacOS

rpk container start

On Debian/Ubuntu

curl -1sLf \
  '' \
  | sudo -E bash
apt-get install redpanda

On Fedora/RedHat/Amazon Linux

curl -1sLf \
  '' \
  | sudo -E bash
yum install redpanda

Build Manually

We provide a very simple build system that uses your system libraries. We recommend users leverage our pre-built stable releases which are vetted, tested, and reproducible with exact versions of the entire transitive dependency graph, including exact compilers all built from source. The only thing we do not build yet is the Linux Kernel, but soon!

For hackers, here is the short and sweet:

sudo ./ && ./
