Production-ready GCP services, Dynamic Message Routing, and Event Mesh Planning

It’s a New Year, and with it comes a new wave of features and functionality for Solace PubSub+ Cloud right on schedule. Here’s a quick overview of what’s available in January:

  • Production-ready GCP services
  • Dynamic Message Routing
  • Event Mesh Planning

Let’s take a closer look at each.

Production-ready GCP services

We’ve done all the final preparations to make messaging services in GCP production-ready, with all the performance, scalability and security you need in place. You can start up messaging services in three GCP regions out of the box, with more available on request. Just select GCP in the drop-down menu when you start a new service to begin.

Dynamic Message Routing

You can now use PubSub+ Cloud to connect event brokers in different cloud regions together in a network – what’s being called an event mesh. This is because all production-ready messaging services (i.e., those with dedicated tenancy) now support Dynamic Message Routing (DMR). You can use the Click-to-Connect feature in the PubSub+ Broker Manager window to easily create message VPN bridges and set up an event mesh to dynamically share messages from publishers or subscribers anywhere within the mesh. Set up an event mesh with PubSub+ Cloud following the step-by-step instructions in our newly expanded Learning Center content.

Event Mesh Planning

You can now visualize your messaging services in a geographic map and plan out your event meshes with our Event Mesh Planning feature, which is an Alpha release. You can then realize these meshes with Click-to-Connect to create the message VPN bridges. This is an early preview of a feature that we will be adding a lot of functionality to in future releases.

I hope you like these changes. Stay tuned for more improvements coming soon!
