Various studies have claimed that the amount of digital information in the world doubles every 18 to 24 months. Using the conservative 2 year estimate, that means there is 32 times as much digital data today as there was in 2001. Some of that growth is from all those cute cat videos and embarrassing Facebook photos, but much of it is valuable business data generated by automated processes within and between businesses.
Today we announced a new partnership integrating our message routers with the B2B and Managed File Transfer (MFT) components of SEEBURGER’s Business Integration Server platform. The big “why” behind this partnership is captured in the “growth of global data” factoid above. SEEBURGER is a powerhouse in the B2B and MFT spaces, and does a lot more application integration (A2A/EAI) than people think.
Today, the growth in data generated by these systems puts stress on the enterprise services bus underneath their software, but with Solace integrated into BIS and MFT, SEEBURGER customers get worry-free capacity for their distributed information requirements in an easy-to-use appliance form factor.
As the volume of information grows, so does the need for smarter distribution technology. Remember, most popular middleware technologies were invented more than a decade ago, when information volumes were 1/32nd what they are today. At Solace, we’ve changed the middleware game by boosting throughput by orders of magnitude to help companies deal with the flood of data without suffering from the cost and complexity of datacenter sprawl.
