One of the advantages of distributing data via the Solace message routers is the ability to leverage their built-in bridging and routing capabilities. With these features, several Solace message routers can be joined together into a global data fabric without loss of service level or sacrificing quality of service. Your applications and developers do not have to care, the publish and subscribe code is the same whether messages are distributed within applications on the same switch or across continents. These built-in capabilities allow data to be distributed between Solace message VPNs which are virtualized messaging environments which provide encapsulation, resource management and security for your applications. For more information on Solace message VPNs you can refer to the message VPN introduction in our Developers Portal.
Here we introduce message VPN bridging and walk you through provisioning two different types of bridges: Unidirectional and Bidirectional. We hope this will help new Solace users reason about bridging, and standardize how we talk about them.… Read the rest
