8 Things to know about


1. What is

Memphis{dev} is an open-source real-time data processing platform
that provides end-to-end support for in-app streaming use cases using Memphis distributed message broker.

Memphis' uniquenesses are zero ops, fast development, extreme cost reduction, coding barriers,
and saving a great amount of time for data-oriented developers and data engineers.

2. What struggles does Memphis solve?

  • Too many data sources become too complicated to handle.
  • Different and complex schemas get in the way.
  • It's difficult to transform schema and analyze streamed data per source.
  • Currently, stream processing requires stitching multiple applications together like Apache Kafka, Flink, and NiFi. Real-time becomes near-real-time, or far-real-time.
  • Loss of messages due to lack of retransmits, crashes, and monitoring.
  • The event's journey is challenging to debug and troubleshoot.
  • Kafka, RabbitMQ, NATS, and other MQs are HARD to deploy, manage, secure, update, onboard, and tune.
  • Turning batch processes into real-time can be complicated and time-consuming.

3. Features


  • Production-grade message broker in under 3 minutes
  • GUI and CLI
  • Data-level observability
  • Kubernetes-native
  • Message Journey
  • SDKs: Python, Go, Node.js, Typescript, Nest.JS
