New Name, Same Us

If you’ve been on the site today you may have noticed some changes. It’s all business as usual, except for one thing: our name. It often came up in conversation that the name Kafkaesque was hard to remember and difficult to pronounce. And typing it out can be a challenge, even for those of us who type it every day. We’ve been so busy building out our messaging service, we haven’t had time to address it. That is, until now. 

Introducing Kesque, the same high-performance cloud messaging service you have come to expect but now with a snappier name.

For our existing customers, nothing about your service will change. We have a new domain name,, but the old one will continue to work. We will switch to the new domain over time, with the appropriate redirects so you will see no impact.

As part of the rename, we decided to spruce up (but not change) our logo icon, making it easier to view the beetle on mobile phones and computer screens. And we’ve given our website a whole new look and feel. Hopefully, you will find it easier to get more information, sign up for the service, or upgrade your plan. If you have any questions or concerns, don’t hesitate to send us a message at

While we have you, a couple more points. As the Apache Pulsar community continues to grow, so are we. New customers are signing up for our service every day and at the same time, we are growing our team to respond to their needs.

COVID-19 has had an unprecedented impact on our lives and the economy. We hope everyone is staying safe and is figuring out how to cope with the new reality. Using a managed service is one of the ways companies can deal with economic uncertainty since it lowers upfront costs and scales with their needs. We are committed to building a fully managed service that helps companies get their data from point A to point B with incredible efficiency and ease. We partner with our customers to help keep their IT expenditures under control and strive for the highest customer satisfaction.
