Solace PubSub+ Event Broker: Software is now certified by Red Hat for their OpenShift container platform, a commercial cloud-based Kubernetes container platform derived from the open-source project. Solace is already widely deployed with customers using OpenShift environments via our published APIs and quick start guides. Red Hat certification helps organizations that have standardized on it and whose operations value the peace of mind they get from 3rd-party certification when choosing software. OpenShift certification is part of our commitment to commercial and open-source Kubernetes environments.
PubSub+ efficiently streams event-driven information between applications, IoT devices, and user interfaces running in the cloud, on-premises, and in hybrid environments using open APIs and protocols like AMQP, JMS, MQTT, REST, and WebSocket. PubSub+ supports a wide range of message exchange patterns beyond publish/subscribe, including request/reply, streaming, and replay, as well as persistent and non-persistent qualities of service.
As a complete event streaming and management platform, PubSub+ Platform can be installed into a variety of public and private clouds, PaaS, and on-premises environments. Event brokers in multiple locations can be linked together in an event mesh to dynamically share events across the distributed enterprise. This means that organizations operating in hybrid or multi-cloud environments can connect Kubernetes environments in an event mesh with other clouds to increase efficiency, availability, reliability, and performance across the application environments.
The version of software available via the catalog is the free “Standard Edition” of PubSub+ Event Broker, which provides the full functionality of the software with a message rate up to 10,000 per second and 1,000 concurrent connections. Organizations looking to upgrade to the Enterprise Edition for additional capacity can do so by applying an enterprise upgrade key, with no changes to the certified container required. You can learn more about Standard and Enterprise editions here.
Helm is a software package manager that simplifies deployment of applications to platform clusters while a chart is a collection of files that describes the platform resources. It manages the definition, installation and upgrades of a Kubernetes application. This facilitates sharing because a single chart can be deployed in different circumstances by installing the chart with a custom values.yaml file. In the case of Red Hat certification, the chart and the container provide the necessary components for a successful and secure deployment of PubSub+ Event Broker.
