Robust Support for AMQP 1.0 Standard and Development of an Open Source API
Demonstrates Commitment to Supporting Community-Based Evolution of Standard
Ottawa, Ontario, November 2, 2017 – Solace, the leading provider of open data movement technology, announced today several developments in its campaign to support the rapidly accelerating market adoption of Advanced Message Queueing Protocol (AMQP) 1.0, an open standard for passing business messages between applications and organizations. AMQP frees companies from vendor lock-in at the data distribution layer by providing a standards-based way of reliably transmitting information between diverse applications within and between enterprises, powering microservices, and feeding process and analytics engines the information they need.
“As more companies migrate applications to cloud and hybrid environments, more people are realizing how important it is to eliminate the risk of lock-in so they can maintain complete flexibility in their distributed application infrastructure,” said Solace CTO Shawn McAllister. “That’s why the time is right for mass adoption of standardized messaging protocols and APIs as companies stream real-time data between applications and enterprises, and AMQP is the natural choice for inter-application messaging, much like MQTT has emerged as the protocol of choice for the Internet of Things.”
Solace has added support for AMQP 1.0 to its Virtual Message Router product, enabling customers to easily send and receive messages via any message exchange pattern or quality of service.
