The product’s new ability to understand the movement of events allows customers to realize the benefits of event optimization, reuse, and lifecycle management.

OTTAWA, Ontario, October 27, 2020Solace announced today the general availability of a new version of PubSub+ Event Portal that makes it easier for developers and solution architects to discover, catalog, govern, and visualize Apache Kafka event streams, including those from Confluent and Amazon MSK.

Solace first announced these capabilities at Kafka Summit in August and has worked with beta customers to refine functionality and usability.

Today’s GA announcement comes as enterprise solution architects increasingly feel the pain of lacking such tooling. As one solution architect at a manufacturing company with 10,000+ employees recently wrote at PeerSpot: “Solace also has a top-notch solution for portal management and you register your producers, consumers, and preprocessing logic. All of these things are pretty easy to do. This is an area where [Apache] Kafka could use some enhancement.”

PubSub+ Event Portal gives application teams the power to:

  • Discover and import Apache Kafka events and application interactions;
  • Catalog event streams already used within Apache Kafka environments;
  • Visualize Apache Kafka topologies;
  • Audit to flag discrepancies between design intent and runtime; and,
  • Add application and event governance to Apache Kafka data.

“We’re pleased with the results of our beta release and thankful to the customers and partners who helped us refine our product to make it truly revolutionary,” said Solace VP of Cloud and Developer Experience Ali Pourshahid.
