Upgrade your event streaming with Amazon MSK
Running Apache Kafka on-premises is a lot of work. Engineers are responsible for provisioning servers, configuring clusters, scaling workloads, ensuring availability, and much more - all on top of developing new applications. All of this operational overhead takes away from your ability to innovate and deploy products that customers love.
Amazon MSK solves these challenges by giving your team a suite of managed services and cloud-native features that automatically do the hard work of managing Apache Kafka for you - no more replacing broken servers, orchestrating patches, or worrying about data security. Amazon MSK can maintain and optimize Apache Kafka infrastructure behind the scenes, so that you can focus on building truly great applications.
“ClearScale provided us a high degree of visibility and structure around our AWS migration effort. They are always responsive and kept all stakeholders in sync with a strong communication cadence. We also appreciate their flexibility to help us with infrastructure initiatives outside of the core project.”
- David Lien, VP Engineering, MintedRead Case Study
