Kafka Streams


Kafka Streams
Without Operational Pain

Responsive is the platform for developers building stateful reactive applications on the modern cloud. You focus on your code, we keep it running.

Managed Storage, Separated Compute

Responsive's storage service means your Kafka Streams apps run without a local RocksDB. You get instant restores, lightning fast rebalances, and a modern cloud architecture without the headache of managing and tuning a storage system.

Intelligent, Instant, Autoscaling

Responsive autoscales apps running in your VPC using configurable policies. Your app sends us metrics, and Responsive will scale your Kafka Streams app up or down to maintain the target lag. Never size a cluster again.
Your Code

Drop-In Migration

Responsive plugs into Open Source Kafka Streams. After including Responsive JARs in your classpath, add Responsive as a prefix to KafkaStreams and your migration is done.
Your VPC

Your Environment. Your Tools.

You have full control over how you develop, build, test, deploy, and monitor your application. Your code runs in your VPC so you can ssh, view logs, collect metrics and stay in the familiarity of your environment.
