Zeebe is the process automation engine powering Camunda Platform 8. While written in Java, you do not need to be a Java developer to use Zeebe.
With Zeebe you can:
- Define processes graphically in BPMN 2.0.
- Choose any gRPC-supported programming language to implement your workers.
- Build processes that react to events from Apache Kafka and other messaging platforms.
- Use as part of a software as a service (SaaS) offering with Camunda Platform 8 or deploy with Docker and Kubernetes (in the cloud or on-premises) with Camunda Platform 8 Self-Managed.
- Scale horizontally to handle very high throughput.
- Rely on fault tolerance and high availability for your processes.
- Export processes data for monitoring and analysis (currently only available through the Elasticsearch exporter added in Camunda Platform 8 Self-Managed).
- Engage with an active community.
For documentation on deploying Zeebe as part of Camunda Platform 8 Self-Managed, refer to the deployment guide.
