On June 14th, over 60 Solace users and folks interested in Solace technology came together at the London Marriott Hotel at Canary Wharf to learn about the Solace roadmap and cloud strategy, and to learn how customers are deploying Solace in their microservices architectures.

After a brief introduction by our UK & MEA SVP of Sales David Mitchell, two clients talked about their implementation of Solace technology. Colin Crist, solution architect from Tullett Prebon, spoke about the adoption of cloud technology in the investment banking industry and how they use the Solace technology. Steve Moreton from CJC took the stage and introduced Monitoring with Mosaic.

During the event, we asked attendees to take part in an instant messaging demo hosted on AWS, Azure and in the Solace London lab. The demo illustrated Solace’s multi-cloud and hybrid cloud capabilities, including the real-time visualization of messages flowing between those cloud and datacenter environments.

Finally, our Vice President of Product Management Steve Buchko talked about our roadmap and how we’re on the path to make it easier than ever for enterprises to get information flowing across big data, cloud, digital and IoT initiatives.

In addition to taking in all those great presentations, attendees enjoyed refreshments and networking time during which they swapped stories about cloud migration, digital transformation and of course their use of Solace technology. Here are some pics from the event.

It was a great event and we look forward to welcoming guests to our next User Group meeting in London which is planned to take place mid-November. Watch this space…
