IBM Event Streams (formerly named Messagehub) is a high-throughput message bus built with Apache Kafka. It is optimized for event ingestion into IBM Cloud and event stream distribution between your services and applications.
Event Streams is a fully managed service built with the open source Apache Kafka project. It supports all of the Kafka APIs, including Kafka Streams and Kafka Connect.
Integrations with services such as the Watson IoT Platform, IBM Streaming Analytics and IBM Cloud Functions make it easy to leverage Event Streams as the critical component of your event-driven architecture.
Event Streams leverages the availability zone support from the IBM Kubernetes Service to ensure that in the unlikely event of an entire zone being unavailable, your applications will continue to work uninterruptedly.
Event Streams benefits from IBM Design Thinking to ensure that you are able to understand core Apache Kafka concepts and to deploy your first Event Streams application in minutes, not hours.
