With this blog post I will describe and demystify the prominent orange lines in this “marketecture” diagram, i.e. the means by which you can link or “bridge” multiple clouds with Solace open data movement technology. I will walk you through the general use cases and drill down to the actual implementation details including example configurations.
In most cases, these inter-cloud links will be implement with Solace’s bridging feature, which provides robust fault tolerant links that support message filtering, compression and transport level security. Generally speaking, a Solace bridge is an embedded specialized client that can transfer messages from one message router or HA cluster to another, either one way or bi-directionally. Solace bridges can be established between any combination or number of virtual message routers and hardware appliances.
Let’s look at some use cases and map them to commonly understood message exchange patterns, then see how each is implemented.… Read the rest
