The Long and Winding Road…to Solace Cloud

Note: Solace Cloud is now called Solace PubSub+ Cloud. Learn more about it here.


As the Beatles famously sang: “I’ve seen that road before, It always leads me here, Lead me to…the cloud.”

Other markets wanted the ability to implement our powerful messaging in either hardware or software form factors, so a few years ago we introduced our Virtual Message Router software – the same capabilities, and the fastest software-based message routing you can find, in a package you can easily deploy in a variety of on-premises or cloud environments.… Read the rest
