Node.js is an increasingly popular runtime environment because it enables “event-driven” programming so real-time applications publish information and consume resources only when necessary. Solace’s appliances make it easy for applications running in Node.js to share real-time data with users locally and around the world by efficiently distributing it over LANs, WANs, and the internet.
Unlike software-based solutions constrained by the limitations of general purpose operating systems, servers and disks, Solace offers high speed and scale in a compact “rack-and-run” appliance that supports millions of messages a second.
“The combination of Node.js and Solace makes it easier and less expensive to build, deploy and scale web applications by enabling the event-driven distribution of information with a fraction of the code and datacenter resources needed using other methods, ” said Shawn McAllister, Solace’s chief technology officer. “As more large scale enterprise applications and consumer services are deployed on the Node platform, they’ll need the cost-effective performance and scalability that our messaging appliance provides.”
