A popular distributed architecture combines regional applications deployed in the public cloud with centralized functionality running within one or more central private datacenters. Instead of cobbling together a solution using cloud-based messaging, some kind of cloud to on-premise connectivity and yet another messaging solution in your datacenter, it’s far simpler to use one unified messaging fabric across the hybrid cloud. The Solace Virtual Message Router spins up easily in all public clouds and it easily peers with Solace appliances that are a natural fit for on premise datacenters.

In this screencast, I demonstrate a global retail application powered by MuleSoft’s Anypoint platform. The retail company’s API runs in MuleSoft CloudHub iPaaS within the AWS public cloud and the back end datacenter processing uses Mule workers. In the demo, I bring up a Solace virtual message router in the AWS public cloud and connect it to a Solace appliance within a central datacenter. The screencast shows how the VMR enables a big step forward in the ease of connectivity across the hybrid cloud.
