In August 2020 we announced the launch of our Cloud Hosted offering. The goal with StreamNative Cloud was to make it easier for companies to adopt Pulsar by taking on the heavy lifting of operations and cluster management. Without having to dedicate time and bandwidth to operations, developers would be able to focus their time and attention on developing applications to meet their core business needs.
For many companies, StreamNative Cloud is doing just that. BestPay is an early user of StreamNative Cloud and Weisheng Xie, Chief Data Scientist at Bestpay, shares how it has enabled his team to launch Pulsar clusters with ease.
"With StreamNative Cloud, we are now able to launch a resilient, secure, and scalable event streaming service within minutes. It’s straightforward and extremely easy to use, which greatly boosts the efficiency of our engineering team."
- Weisheng (Vincent) Xie, Chief Data Scientist/Senior Director, China Telecom Bestpay
StreamNative Cloud is the industry’s only fully-managed, cloud-native messaging and event streaming platform powered by the original developers of Apache Pulsar. It works just like the open-source Apache Pulsar, with the same APIs and open-source clients being used to send and receive messages.
While StreamNative Cloud is a great fit for companies that have already decided on Apache Pulsar, we wanted to make it easier for new companies and developers to try Pulsar.
For Sijie Guo, CEO and co-founder of StreamNative, and, also, one of the original developers of Apache Pulsar and Apache Bookkeeper, the Free Cloud Offering is an opportunity to enable more developers and organizations to try Pulsar.
“When we launched StreamNative Cloud, we wanted to remove barriers to adoption for Pulsar. While it was a great fit for companies that were further along in their adoption journey, there was high demand from people who were just getting started. Namely, developers who wanted to try Pulsar without having to put down a credit card or get approvals. The free offering makes this possible.”
