Amazon MSK customers


Arm is building the future of computing. Their energy-efficient processor designs and software platforms have enabled advanced computing in more than 270 billion chips and their technologies securely power products from the sensor to the smartphone and the supercomputer, including the Graviton family of CPUs.

“Kafka has been a central component of our Engineering Analytics Platform at Arm for several years now, both on prem and in the cloud. Since its initial commissioning we have run it on Arm architecture, however to improve reliability and reduce management overhead we were looking to use Amazon Managed Streaming for Apache Kafka (MSK).
With the enhancement of MSK to support Graviton 3, we are able to return our analytics service to a fully Arm-based stack, delivering higher performance at lower cost while reducing the carbon footprint of our operations.”
Tim Thornton, Director of Arm Based Engineering, ARM

The Orchard

The Orchard

The Orchard is a leading distributor in the music industry, reaching digital and physical retailers worldwide. As the distributor grew, it wanted to improve analytics quality, time to insights, and the synchronization and sharing of data across its teams. To reach these goals, The Orchard needed a way to centralize its siloed data systems and to simplify sharing information across applications for employees and customers.

The Orchard built a high-performing data synchronization solution using Amazon Managed Streaming for Apache Kafka to provide access to near-real-time data for employees, improving accuracy of search queries, and reducing time to synchronize metadata from 10 hours to 30 minutes.

"It would take 10 hours to synchronize our metadata stores. But now, using Amazon MSK, this process takes 30 minutes."

Farouk Umar, Lead Manager of Engineering, The Orchard


New Relic

The world’s best engineering teams rely on New Relic to visualize, analyze and troubleshoot their software. New Relic One is the most powerful cloud-based observability platform built to help companies create more perfect software.

"When migrating away from our datacenter and into AWS, we needed a way to retain our business critical investments in Kafka while significantly reducing the overhead of running Kafka ourselves. This led us to MSK. We’ve shifted a significant portion of infrastructure and Kafka software management onto MSK clusters, which have scaled to support over 40 GB/sec on average of data ingestion. For example, we no longer have to manage hardware and software for keeping our clusters up to date. As a result, we are able to invest more of our resources towards developing services around Kafka for our client teams, which is what we do best. Consuming MSK lets us focus on our core competencies; enabling us to release better products faster and more frequently"

Tempus Ex Logo

Tempus Ex

Tempus Ex Machina is a cutting-edge technology company revolutionizing the sports and entertainment industry. Merging sports, video, and data with innovation and accessibility, Tempus Ex builds its technology on Amazon Web Services (AWS) to facilitate the creation of new interactive experiences around live events. Tempus Ex uses Apache Kafka to stream
large amounts of event data for live sporting events from stadiums and venues around the globe.  

"We use various AWS services to stream and process large amounts of data for live sports, so many parts of our infrastructure have very high utilization on game days and zero utilization on other days. Before using Amazon Managed Streaming for Apache Kafka (Amazon MSK) Serverless, the moving parts and operational overhead required to efficiently scale up and down for game days were a major burden, and capacity was often over-provisioned. Amazon MSK Serverless helped us to offload scaling concerns onto Amazon, which gives us the freedom to spend our engineering time elsewhere. We immediately started saving tens of thousands of dollars on our monthly AWS bill, and were able to reallocate our valuable engineering time from capacity planning and optimizing scaling mechanisms to tackling other tasks.”
