Putting Redpanda to the Jepsen Test. A discussion with Kyle Kingsbury of Jepsen

Learn what Jepsen found, what we fixed, and what we shouldn't 

Kyle Kingsbury has made a career of improving the safety of distributed systems. He puts software through its paces to help users find the critical infrastructure that fit their needs. With his Jepsen test, he explores whether a system lives up to its claims, files new bugs and makes recommendations for operators. 

Redpanda is an Apache Kafka® compatible streaming storage engine built from the ground up to keep your data safe in the presence of network partitions, slow disks, faulty filesystems, etc.
