Instaclustr teams with Uber to support Cadence

Canberra-based open source company Instaclustr has announced it will be supporting an open source version of Uber’s Cadence open source business process automation platform.

The fault-oblivious, stateful code platform and workflow engine was developed and open sourced by Uber, which is supporting the ongoing development of the platform as a community-driven project.

Cadence is targeted at enterprises operating large-scale, microservices-based architectures. The open source platform uses a programming model that allows developers to write stateful applications without the need to address complex process-failure handling.

The platform is capable of scaling horizontally to handle millions of concurrent workflows.

Instaclustr Chief Product Officer Ben Slater said the company is particularly well suited to join Uber in supporting the platform due to its Apache Cassandra, Apache Kafka and OpenSearch dependencies.

“With Cadence, Uber has introduced a powerful and popular solution that can help simplify and accelerate the development of software for classes of business processes operated across countless enterprises,” he said.

“The data infrastructure fundamental to Cadence is made up of the open source technologies we work with every day, and we’re eager to put that expertise to work in supporting Cadence and growing the open source community around it.”
