Camunda Platform 8 Released
April 12, 2022

Camunda announced the next-generation release, Camunda Platform 8, now powered by Zeebe, a cloud-native workflow engine designed for true horizontal scalability and resilience.

Camunda Platform 8 provides organizations with speed, scale, security and resiliency without the overhead of building and maintaining infrastructure. The breakthrough in horizontal scalability is made possible by Zeebe, Camunda’s next generation cloud-native workflow engine. Zeebe can scale throughput linearly by adding cluster nodes, allowing for processing an unlimited amount of transactions at consistent low latencies. To ensure resilience, Zeebe comes with a new fail-over architecture that also supports geo-replication across data centers to provide availability of 99.999% or more.

The new open architecture in Camunda Platform 8 also takes advantage of an external task client pattern unlocking universal connectivity. This connectivity is made possible by a series of essential connectors along with simple and intuitive integrations across technology enablers from RPA, CRM, ERP, and BI Systems, to AI, IoT, and messaging platforms. With Camunda’s integration framework, teams can develop custom connectors using SDKs for their preferred programming language, then reuse and even govern usage of their custom connectors across all aspects of their business.

Once deployed within Camunda Platform 8, connectors are accessible in the new web-based process Modeler. With Camunda Platform 8, Modeler has been reimagined to unlock deep collaboration between business users who are intimately familiar with business processes and IT who develop the automation. This collaboration, in combination with the new integration framework, helps to ensure business agility by drastically reducing the time it takes to design and agree upon process changes, and by allowing for rapid implementation of processes that orchestrate people, systems, and devices — including modern microservices as well as legacy applications.

Camunda Platform 8 is offered as SaaS or self managed. The SaaS offering is hosted on Google Cloud, while self managed can be run on internal infrastructure or any cloud provider such as Google Cloud, AWS, or Microsoft Azure.
