Solace Introduces “Event Mesh” Providing Real-Time Data as a Service
Enhanced Capabilities Power Intelligent, Reliable Routing of Events Across Global, Hybrid Cloud and IoT Environments Resulting in Improved Customer Experiences
Solace announced the launch of enhanced data distribution capabilities that allow a network of its interconnected PubSub+ advanced event brokers to act as an event mesh. The company has improved its unique ability to establish real-time streams of events between globally distributed applications and devices with product developments, including dynamic message routing (DMR), message replay, and sophisticated integrations with Apache Kafka, Amazon Web Services and Pivotal Cloud Foundry.
“An event mesh is an architectural layer that reliably routes events between applications and devices, regardless of where they’re deployed, using any API, exchange pattern or communications protocol,” said Denis King, Solace COO. “Event meshes help companies improve situational awareness and corporate agility as they deploy increasingly complex applications and devices on-premises, in the cloud, and across Internet of Things environments.”
As Gartner noted: “The strategic role of event-driven computing in digital business, that strives for continuous awareness, intelligence and agility, creates a demand for event broker technology that is designed specifically for event-driven use cases.1”
An event mesh is self-learning and capable of dynamically routing events between producer and consumer applications, wherever they run, via the most efficient path. This routing can include the guaranteed delivery of data between enterprise applications as part of business processes, the aggregation of sensor readings from millions of IoT devices, or the simultaneous fan-out of alerts to hundreds of thousands of mobile devices.
The partnership between Solace and Dell Boomi delivers an event-driven integration platform as a service (iPaaS) for hybrid and multi-cloud environments, and has helped enterprises realize the power and potential of event-based architectures. “With Solace, we’re getting positive feedback from companies that plan to integrate applications supported by a real-time eventing and messaging backbone. Now with event mesh support, this will help our joint customers elevate their digital transformation journey in order to be competitive,” said Michael J. Morton, Boomi’s Chief Technology Officer.
