A er breaking their monolithic applica ons into more granular microsevic- es-based systems, Freeus was struggling to keep track of not just the services but the informa on flowing between them via Apache Ka a. Their senior architect found himself using a clumsy combina on of Visio diagrams, Excel spreadsheets and whiteboard drawings to communicate the system's archi- tecture to developers and line of business stakeholders across the organi- Why They Picked Solace When Freeus discovered and conducted a trial of Event Portal for Ka a, they realized it solved the exact problems they were having. Senior architect Caleb New – who had been manually diagraming event streams between microservices in Visio – was amazed that Event Portal for Ka a was able to automa - cally scan their system and create a more complete map of endpoints and event streams than what he'd assembled across 5 Visio documents and 3 spreadsheets. How They Benefited Being able to define their applica- ons and event streams, along with the versions of them they're running, and the layer of other things they can communicate with all-in-one place has helped them become way more agile in their release process. They are now deploying new services much more quickly – a release every two weeks in 2023, compared to just four in all of 2022. Freeus, LLC makes mobile medical alerts and personal safety systems like two-way voice mobile personal emergency response systems (mPERS) that give end users offer peace of mind by giving them fast access to expert operators. Challenge A er decomposing their monolithic applica ons into microservices linked by Apache Ka a, Freeus was strug- gling to understand and manage their infrastructure and informa on flows. Solu on They used Solace Event Portal for Ka a to discover and document the Ka a event streams flowing between the many microservices of their newly distributed system. In Their Own Words "Event Portal for Ka a has helped us understand our own system and give our developers and sister companies self-service access to find and tap into valuable Ka a streams as they create innova ve services that streamline our opera ons and be er serve our customers." Freeus accelerates development by understanding and exposing Ka a event streams across organiza on. FAST FACTS
