Solace has just released VMR 7.2.2. We’ve had many people looking to use the VMR in Microsoft Hyper-V, so we’ve added Hyper-V to the list of virtualization environments that the VMR can be deployed in. This new version also brings the Eliding feature to the VMR.
One only need to look at Facebook’s the recent aggressive expansion into live video streaming with the launch of Facebook Live to appreciate the phenomenon pace at which the live streaming landscape is evolving. It goes without saying that the expectation of the era post 2015 is that the live video streaming system must be able to simultaneously stream to hundreds of thousands of viewers, if not millions, and it must also have global reachability. This is a mammoth task but is an area where, as I will highlight throughout this bog, Solace can uniquely add value.
More and more, we’re making use of Spring Boot within our projects internally at Solace. It enables us to be much more productive as we develop new messaging based microservices. But what was missing up until now was a nice Spring Boot Starter for Solace JMS and Solace Java messaging. Without these packages, you couldn’t take full advantage of the benefits of Spring Boot auto-configuration which is a very powerful part of Spring Boot. Now as part of Solace Labs, we’ve shared two projects to help other Solace users easily use Solace Messaging as the foundation for their Spring Boot microservices.
