Managed Cadence Workflow

Cadence is an important open source project for developer productivity. It decreases the amount of plumbing code that is required when building distributed applications.

Instaclustr will accelerate your path to productivity with Cadence by handling the operations, setup, and administration of your Cadence cluster.

What Is Cadence?

Cadence, open sourced by Uber under the MIT license, is a service and programming framework that greatly simplifies the development and operations of workflow-style business logic while supporting the most demanding availability, reliability, and scalability requirements. By reconstituting the application state following a hardware or software failure, Cadence allows the creation of applications that are truly fault-oblivious.

The Cadence workflow engine simplifies the process of developing and running process-driven business logic at the highest levels of scale and reliability. Cadence is able to scale horizontally to handle millions of concurrent workflows and is used by many of the largest organizations in the world. It can support nearly any use case that requires tracking and maintaining application state, handling asynchronous events, or orchestrating workflows across complex and interdependent microservices.

Benefits of Managed Cadence

Cadence is a powerful technology for handling complex processes across distributed systems. But it is also fairly new to the market, making it difficult to hire expert operators internally to manage Cadence day in and day out. With the Instaclustr SaaS Platform, you can remove the burden of managing Cadence and related technologies from your team in order to configure, deploy, and run Cadence with ease.

With Instaclustr Managed Cadence, you get a production-ready and fully supported Cadence environment, including all supporting data services, up and running in minutes. This maximizes the benefits of Cadence by allowing you to focus on your business logic while Instaclustr Managed Cadence takes care of your infrastructure for reliability and scale.
Scalability

Cadence has been proven to scale horizontally to support millions of concurrent workflows. But managing Cadence and its underlying data infrastructure for scale can still be a challenge. With Instaclustr Managed Cadence, we can help you seamlessly scale up or scale down as your requirements evolve.

Optimized configuration

Our Cadence configurations are tuned for reliability, performance, and security based years of experience operating open source technologies.

Seamless provisioning

Instaclustr Managed Cadence makes it easy to provision or de-provision nodes within your Cadence cluster.
