On February 16th, Solace took part in the Boston Pivotal Cloud Foundry meetup, talking about the Solace Tile for PCF and how easy it makes it to add enterprise class data movement and messaging services to your PCF environment.
Mark Spielman, a member of Solace’s Office of the CTO, demonstrated horizontal scaling of aggregated microservices. Microservices are a hot architectural topic among developers today, and the ease of using messaging to allow those microservices to communicate was clearly shown. Additionally, the ability to elastically scale messaging and streaming capacity was demonstrated using the standard PCF tools.
Pivotal’s John Ferguson talked about PCF’s OPS capabilities, and how the Solace and PCF work together to create a seamless devops environment.
The Solace Tile for PCF is available now, as is the Virtual Message Router, on which the Tile is based. More information on Solace and PCF is available on the developer portal and that the demo code is open sourced on Github as well as the availability of additional samples and Spring integrations.
After the presentation Mark and John engaged in more specific discussions with attendees about their PCF environments and plans, of particular interest was integration with legacy assets.
We always enjoy these meetups and the chance to meet new users and learn what they are up to. We look forward to the next one!
