Modern enterprises are turning toward if not fully embracing event-driven architectures and thinking. But many are doing so for select use cases only, without a clear vision for enterprise-wide event distribution. That’s something that should be keeping digital transformation leaders up at night.
An event mesh is an architecture layer that allows events from one application to be dynamically routed and received by any other application no matter where these applications are deployed (no cloud, private cloud, public cloud). This layer is composed by a network of Event Brokers. Event brokers are a modern form of messaging middleware, which are designed to move events across the distributed enterprise.
Global FX has been the “unnamed event mesh for years”. FX Prices are published to the mesh in NY, and consumed in London in no time, and orders placed – again injected back into the event. Each event is tagged with its URL or Topic, and gets routed to the applications who can consume and act on it.
An event mesh gives enterprises the ability to support event driven architectures from the smallest of microservices deployments, to extending applications to hybrid cloud in a governed, performant, robust, secure, well architected manner. It provides the ability to integrate legacy applications, data stores, modern microservices, SaaS, Iot and mobile devices dynamically and all in real-time. An event mesh gives application developers and architects a foundation on which to build and deploy distributed event-driven applications where ever they need to be built and deployed.
Event mesh makes all data that touches the mesh available on demand in a secure, reliable manner
IT is legacy integration. OT is the sensing of devices. Event mesh is the glue that ties old technology with the new.
Real-time data delivery means no waiting. Spikes in demand are handled easily so end users/systems don’t crash.
Solace enables an event mesh with PubSub+, our advanced event brokers. You create an event mesh with Solace by deploying PubSub+ in any/all your environments (public/private clouds, on premises), and then connecting them, at which point all applications, microservices, cloud services, SaaS, iPaaS and legacy systems connected to an event broker in the mesh will be instantly and continuously connected with one another.
Events will become the life blood of the modern enterprise. Businesses that will lead in innovation, client experience, and efficiency will be those that enable events to flow freely and easily across every environment and component of the digital enterprise.
