Built on Apache Kafka

Message Hub is based on Apache Kafka: a fast, scalable, and durable real-time messaging engine from the Apache Software Foundation. To understand the benefits of using Apache Kafka as a service, see Message Hub: Apache Kafka as a Service.

Kafka is widely used by many companies. For details and examples, see the Powered By Kafka page.

We love microservices

We know that working in a microservices framework helps you to innovate quickly, so we've provided tools that we know should help. Message Hub gives you the opportunity to build in a range of languages and lets your services communicate using a REST API, or the Kafka API.
