Vectorized was founded in 2019 by current CEO and co-founder Alexander Gallego to modernize streaming data. Redpanda was the name of the product developed. Alexander learnt that customers like and recognize the company by this name, so he made the executive decision to adopt the Redpanda name for the business as well.
Redpanda has nothing to do with streaming, but when we sent out surveys, people loved the name and it just kind of took over.Alexander Gallego, CEO and Co-founder of Redpanda
Redpanda has created an open-source streaming tool designed to take a modern approach to data streaming technology, resulting in increased popularity and a $50 million Series B investment.
From an adoption perspective, we went from thousands of clusters deployed at the beginning of the year [when we launched Redpanda] to hundreds of thousands of clusters deployed by the end of the year. And today, we’re deploying more clusters per day than we did in the first six months.Alexander Gallego, CEO and Co-founder of Redpanda
To further enhance the transition and reduce the risk of consumer misunderstanding, Redpanda has invested in the exact brand match domain name Redpanda.com. The new name has already passed audience testing since the consumers have been familiar with it for a long time.
