Webinar Recap: Solace: Messaging with Purpose on Pivotal Cloud Foundry

On May 30, Solace Senior Architect Jonathan Schabowsky explained how messaging and microservices work with Pivotal Cloud Foundry as part of a Brighttalk webinar. He provided a great introduction to the concept of microservices and then dove into the details of architectural considerations.

As part of that he covered how Platform as a Service (PaaS) makes it easier to deliver on the microservice promise by eliminating some of the distractions that app developers face while providing a “deploy anywhere” capability. But, as Jonathan covers, “deploy anywhere” comes with its own headaches around communication and data movement.

Jonathan dug into a comparison of REST and other open protocols, like AMQP and MQTT. One of his comments (often mentioned in technology) refers to the fact that not everything is a nail to the REST hammer. Fortunately, we find out that there are a lot of different tools available in the Solace toolbox. You can find even more on microservices on the Solace dev site and find code, demos and more examples on the Labs site and Github repositories.… Read the rest

Solace Pivotal Cloud Foundry Tile is now GA!

This is an exciting time for us, our friends at Pivotal and our user community as we take our next step on improving accessibility to Solace Open Data Movement technology. Today our Solace Messaging for PCF Tile is generally available as part of the Pivotal Network. The tile, which allows app developers to use Solace messaging in any Pivotal Cloud Foundry deployment, has been in Beta for several months. This release is ready for prime time, with enough features and fixes to support your favorite microservice or IoT use case.

The highlights of this release include:

  • High Availability: VMR HA is now provisioned for you in key plans to add robustness for your applications with the click of a button
  • More Plan Choices: We now have 5 distinct plans for developers to choose from depending on your needs – some on a shared VMR for development, some on your own dedicated VMR, with choices of performance/capacity and high availability.

Solace at PCF Meetup in Boston

On February 16th, Solace took part in the Boston Pivotal Cloud Foundry meetup, talking about the Solace Tile for PCF and how easy it makes it to add enterprise class data movement and messaging services to your PCF environment.

Mark Spielman, a member of Solace’s Office of the CTO, demonstrated horizontal scaling of aggregated microservices. Microservices are a hot architectural topic among developers today, and the ease of using messaging to allow those microservices to communicate was clearly shown. Additionally, the ability to elastically scale messaging and streaming capacity was demonstrated using the standard PCF tools.

Pivotal’s John Ferguson talked about PCF’s OPS capabilities, and how the Solace and PCF work together to create a seamless devops environment.

The Solace Tile for PCF is available now, as is the Virtual Message Router, on which the Tile is based. More information on Solace and PCF is available on the developer portal and that the demo code is open sourced on Github as well as the availability of additional samples and Spring integrations.… Read the rest
