Earlier this month AWS announced the release of an AWS Quick Start for the Solace VMR.  Now there is also a quickstart on the Azure Quick Start page.

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 Azure Quick Start allows you to select between “Single Node” or “High Availability” deployment models.  The single node deployment model can use the community edition of the Solace VMR and provides a very simple way to evaluate all the functionality a non-redundant instance of the VMR has to offer. The high availability deployment model requires a time based evaluation instance of the VMR and adds the robustness of Solaces high availability solution.

Both of these deployment models utilize the simple template driven Azure Resource Manager (ARM) interface to quickly and easily deploy complete solutions.

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 within 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:
