kPow Launches on the Red Hat Marketplace

Operatr.IO Announces Availability of kPow for Apache Kafka® on Red Hat Marketplace

Red Hat Marketplace provides a one-stop shop to purchase enterprise applications and deploy across any cloud or on-premise.

Operatr.IO is excited to announce that kPow, our flagship Apache Kafka tooling solution, is now available through Red Hat Marketplace.

Red Hat Marketplace is an open cloud marketplace for enterprise customers to discover, try, purchase, deploy, and manage certified container-based software across environments— public and private, cloud and on-premises. Through the marketplace, customers can take advantage of responsive support, streamlined billing and contracting, simplified governance, and single-dashboard visibility across clouds.

kPow is a toolkit for engineers who build, manage, and maintain systems powered by Apache Kafka. It features a rich data-oriented Kafka UI, specialized dashboards that deliver instant in-depth visibility into Kafka clusters, and developer tools that quickly allow engineers to get to the heart of their data.  

“The Red Hat and IBM vision for a multicloud marketplace supporting business to build highly scalable, containerized systems is hugely exciting.” Says Derek Troy-West, CEO, Operatr.IO.

“We’re thrilled to be a part of the GA launch and to see how kPow empowers teams to deliver with Kafka and Red Hat AMQ Streams.”

Built-in collaboration with Red Hat and IBM, Red Hat Marketplace delivers a hybrid multicloud trifecta for organizations moving into the next era of computing: a robust ecosystem of partners, an industry-leading Kubernetes container platform, and award-winning commercial support—all on a highly scalable backend powered by IBM. A private, personalized marketplace is also available through Red Hat Marketplace Select, enabling clients to provide their teams with easier access to curated software their organizations have pre-approved.

“We believe Red Hat Marketplace is an essential destination to unlock the value of cloud investments,” said Lars Herrmann, senior director of technology partnerships, Red Hat. “With the marketplace, we are making it as fast and easy as possible for companies to implement the tools and technologies that can help them succeed in this hybrid multicloud world.

“We’ve simplified the steps to find and purchase tools like Operatr.IO’s kPow toolkit that are tested, certified and supported on Red Hat OpenShift, and we’ve removed operational barriers to deploying and managing these technologies on Kubernetes-native infrastructure.”

“Through Red Hat Marketplace, we’re expanding our ecosystem together with partners like Operatr.IO and helping our customers thrive in a hybrid multicloud world,” said Sandesh Bhat, IBM General Manager, Open Cloud Technology & Applications. “Container-based environments are the future of enterprise technology, and Red Hat OpenShift is the industry’s most comprehensive enterprise Kubernetes platform. We’re excited to simplify software purchase and adoption for our clients through a curated private Marketplace experience.”

Red Hat Marketplace is designed to meet the unique needs of developers, procurement teams and IT leaders through simplified and streamlined access to popular enterprise software. All solutions available through the marketplace have been tested and certified for Red Hat OpenShift, allowing them to run anywhere OpenShift runs. A containers-based approach provides confidence that applications can be run and managed the exact same way, regardless of the underlying cloud infrastructure. This gives companies the flexibility to run their workloads on premises or in any public or private cloud with improved portability and confidence that their applications and data are protected against vendor lock-in.
