This week AWS announced the release of an AWS Quick Start for the Solace VMR (2018 update: the VMR is now referred to as Solace PubSub+). The VMR is a software message router that is fully compatible with the Solace message appliance and Solace SDKs, as well as open source AMQP, JMS, MQTT, REST and WebSocket. The VMR provides message-oriented middleware with class-leading reliability, performance, scale and robustness.
This AWS Quick Start is one of their “automated gold-standard deployments” which shows how to create a fully integrated production deployment of a Solace VMR high availability cluster. Solace has had multi-cloud offerings for some time, but this Quick Start allows you to more quickly and easily deploy a fully configured HA cluster. We worked with AWS architects to develop and validate this deployment in an optimized configuration that eliminates the need to worry about the details and mechanics of configuring the cluster yourself.
Solace will continue to work with cloud providers to provide simple but complete deployments to make our multi-cloud offerings even easier to deploy and start working with in minutes. You will see more such quick starts in the coming days.
In the meantime you can check out SolaceLabs for some simple deployment options we are developing and continuing to enhance:
