What is Memphis?

An open-sourced, dev-first event processing platform.
At its core, Memphis delivers a k8s-native messaging queue that is easy to use, deploy, and manage. Its state-of-the-art UI and CLI provide built-in observability that allows you to understand the full journey of your events.
The strength of Memphis reveals on day 2. Developers can offload most of the business logic out of the producers and consumers and embed it inside Memphis' station (queue). Current framework supports the following:
  • Inline schema changes and schema registry
  • Enrichment and analysis of ingested data on-the-fly
  • Ready-to-use connectors and components (Similar to Kafka sinks) that can push and pull data autonomously

What struggles does Memphis solve?

  1. 1.
    Too many data sources become too complicated to handle.
  2. 2.
    Different and complex schemas get in the way.
  3. 3.
    It's difficult to transform schema and analyze streamed data per source.
  4. 4.
    With multiple producers and consumers, it's hard to understand who does what.
  5. 5.
    The event's journey is challenging to debug and troubleshoot.
  6. 6.
    Kafka, RabbitMQ, NATS, and other MQs are HARD to deploy, manage, secure, update, onboard, and tune.
  7. 7.
    Turning batch processes into real time can be complicated and time-consuming.
