Memphis Cloud: Empowering Developers with Next-Gen Data Streaming

Yaniv Ben Hemo June 28, 2023 4 min read

Event processing innovator today introduced Memphis Cloud to enable a full serverless experience for massive scale event streaming and processing, and announced it had secured $5.58 million in seed funding co-led by Angular Ventures and boldstart ventures, with participation from JFrog co-founder and CTO Fred Simon, Snyk co-founder Guy Podjarny, CircleCI CEO Jim Rose, co-founder David Mytton, and Priceline CTO Martin Brodbeck.

Introducing Cloud, the next-generation event streaming platform, is ready to make waves in the world and disrupt data streaming with its highly anticipated cloud service launch.
With a firm commitment to providing developers and data engineers with a powerful and unified streaming engine, aims to revolutionize the way software is utilizing a message broker. In this blog post, we delve into the key features and benefits of’s cloud service, highlighting how it empowers organizations and developers to unleash the full potential of their data.

What to expect?

1. The Serverless Experience

Memphis’ platform was intentionally designed to be deployed in minutes, on any Kubernetes, on any cloud, both on-prem, public cloud, or even in air-gapped environments.
In advance of the rising multi-cloud architecture, Memphis enables streamlining development between the local dev station all the way to the production, both on-prem and through various clouds, and to reduce TCO and overall complexity – the serverless cloud will enable an even faster onboarding and time-to-value.

2. Enable “Day 2” operations

Message brokers need to evolve to handle the vast amount and complexity of events that occur, and they need to incorporate three critical elements: reliable; ease to manage and scale; and, offer what we call the “Day 2” operations on top to help build queue-based, stream-driven applications in minutes.

To support both the small and the massive scale and workloads Memphis is built for, some key features were only enabled to be delivered via the cloud.

Key features in Memphis Cloud include:

  1. Augmenting Kafka clusters – providing the missing piece in modern stream processing with the ability to augment Kafka clusters;
  2. Schemaverse – Enabling built-in schema management, enforcement, and transformation to ensure data quality as our data gets complicated and branched;
  3. Multi-tenancy – Offering the perfect solution for users of SaaS platforms who want to isolate traffic between their customers;
  4. True multi-cloud – creating primary instances on GCP, and a replica on AWS.

3. A Developer-Centric Approach (and obsession)’s cloud service launch is driven by a developer-centric philosophy, recognizing that developers are the driving force behind technological innovation. With a deep understanding of developers’ and data engineers’ needs, especially in the current era of much more complicated pipelines with much fewer hands, has created a comprehensive suite of out-of-the-box tools and features tailored specifically to enhance productivity, streamline workflows, and facilitate collaboration. By prioritizing the developer experience, aims to empower developers to focus on what they do best: writing exceptional code, and extracting value out of their data!

4. No code changes. Open-source to Cloud.

Fully aligned development experience between the open-source and the cloud. No code changes are needed, nor an application config modification.
The cloud does reveal an additional parameter to add and is not mandatory, which is an account id.

5. Enhanced Security and Compliance: prioritizes the security and compliance of its cloud service, recognizing the critical importance of protecting sensitive data. With robust security measures, including data encryption, role-based identity and access management, integration with 3rd party identity managers, and regular security audits, ensures that developers’ applications and data are safeguarded. By adhering to industry-standard compliance frameworks, helps developers meet regulatory requirements and build applications with confidence.

6. Support and Success

The core support and customer service ethos of is customer success and enablement. A successful customer is a happy customer, and we are working hard to support our customers not just with Memphis, but with their bigger picture and data journey. Three global customer support teams, spread across three different timezones alongside highly experienced data engineers and data architects that are positioned as Customer Success Engineers and willing to dive into the internals of our customers and help them achieve their goals.

“Cluster setup, fault tolerance, high availability, data replication, performance tuning, multitenancy, security, monitoring, and troubleshooting all are headaches everyone who has deployed traditional message broker platforms is familiar with,” said Torsten Volk, senior analyst, EMA. “Memphis however is incredibly simple so that I had my first Python app sending and receiving messages in less than 15 minutes.”    

“The world is asynchronous and built out of events. Message brokers are the engine behind their flow in the modern software architecture, and when we looked at the bigger picture and the role message brokers play, we immediately understood that the modern message broker should be much more intelligent and by far with much less friction,” said Yaniv Ben Hemo, co-founder and CEO, Memphis. “With that idea, we built which takes five minutes on average for a user to get to production and start building queue-based applications and distributed streaming pipelines.”
