Event Streams is a great service and probably the best offering in our current deployment. Redis availability is also key for our architecture as well as PostgreSQL. Since we use Kubernetes, this is also a service that we value, but where AWS is superior in their offering. Instances as a whole are on the same price-level as AWS so its a good thing to see if the available geographical regions are suitable for the respective projects.
