Editor’s note: We’ve renamed our product suite. The VMR is now referred to as Solace PubSub+. See our products page for more information.
Kubernetes has recently emerged as the clear leader in the container services space, as evidenced by announcements from all the major public cloud service providers and technology vendors such as Pivotal and Mesos. Enterprises are increasingly looking to leverage all the advantages that an orchestration layer for containers brings, and are rapidly adopting Kubernetes as their platform of choice.
We’re committed to making our world class Virtual Message Router (VMR) easily deployable in any environment, have had OpenShift support for some time, and just added Kubernetes to our already extensive list of supported environments.
Whether you’re using a managed Kubernetes container service from one of the major cloud providers or not, you can leverage the benefits of Kubernetes containerization in your Public or Private environments, and now quickly deploy VMRs in these environments for all your messaging middleware needs. These VMR deployment solutions, and more, can be accessed for free at https://solace.com/downloads/.
Watch out for upcoming production grade deployment quickstarts from Solace in these, and other cloud environments that have also embraced the use of Kubernetes.
