Redpanda introduces Redpanda Console, a powerful and secure web-based user interface for real-time debugging and cluster management

New features streamline the development and management of robust, reliable, and secure data pipelines for real-time applications

SAN FRANCISCO, September 20, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Redpanda Data today announced Redpanda Console, a web-based user interface for developers that simplifies and secures the management and debugging of large-scale applications built around real-time data streams.

Included with the latest version of the Redpanda streaming data platform, Redpanda Console stems from the company’s commitment to reducing the complexity that has hindered running applications on real-time data. The Redpanda Console gives developers and operators visibility into their data streams with powerful debugging and cluster administration features.

“Redpanda was designed to deliver a simpler user experience in every aspect – easier to deploy, easier for developers to build applications, and easier for site reliability engineers and system administrators to manage,” said declared Alex Gallego, CEO and Founder of Redpanda. “With Redpanda Console, we’ve extended the ease of use of the platform to second-day operations, giving users the ability to manage their clusters and easily debug large-scale streaming data environments.”

Remove the complexities of streaming data infrastructure

The use of enterprise applications that run on real-time data streams continues to grow, but the infrastructure required by these applications can result in significant operational overhead for the teams tasked with managing these complex systems. For example, Apache Kafka forces users to work with heavy command-line tools that limit visibility into message streams and consumers, making it difficult for SREs and system administrators to troubleshoot.

Redpanda Console makes it easy for SREs and system administrators to manage their Kafka workloads and helps engineering teams deliver and maintain robust, reliable, and secure data pipelines for real-time applications. The console’s visual interface makes it easier for administrators to understand security policies and helps administrators avoid misconfigurations that could lead to security breaches.

The Redpanda Console provides unique functionality for:

  • Perform time travel debugging through historical messages to identify and debug issues
  • Quickly browse messages in real time to understand the “now”
  • Easily view messages encoded in Avro, Protobuf, Binary, JSON, XML and more
  • Leverage search and programmable filters to monitor millions of messages
  • Visually manage Kafka ACLs, topics, schemas, and Kafka Connect
  • Monitor consumer groups, partitions, broker settings and more

Redpanda is rapidly gaining traction in data-intensive industries including technology, fintech, entertainment, game development and IoT, and has seen the number of clusters deployed grow from a few thousand to hundreds of thousands over the past of the past year. The Redpanda streaming data platform is available to developers under the BSL license. Enterprises also partner with Redpanda for self-hosted production systems and to access Redpanda’s cloud offerings.
