FREMONT, CA: Solace Systems, a provider of data movement technology, announces that it is extending cloud strategy with the support for OpenStack and Amazon Web Services (AWS). Customers can now deploy Solace’s Virtual Message Router (VMR) as a part of OpenStack and AWS cloud environments and incorporate Solace Message Routing Appliances (MRA) into those environments.

The Solace Virtual Message Router (VMR) is Solace messaging technology provides localized message routing and persistence in cloud and IoT environments. It features a multi-threaded, parallel pipelined architecture, optimized for modern multi-core processor architectures. It’s a robust, high performance, full-featured APIs enable companies to leverage their messaging platform across their business.

With its message router appliances, Solace has embedded data movement logic and protocols into high-speed FPGAs (field-programmable gate arrays) and Network Processors to eliminate the latency and unpredictability associated with OS interrupts and context switching. Solace’s messaging capabilities are accessible through a unified API and are easy to deploy, manage and upgrade over time. It features an admin framework that is easy to integrate with existing management tools and security systems, that ensures users can secure their systems and troubleshoot faults.

The VMR and Solace message router appliances are fully interoperable for seamless interaction and migration. Currently, VMR supports VMWare, Oracle VirtualBox and Linux KVM and now extends its support for containers, datacenter operating systems and platform-as-a-service (PaaS) offerings.

Providing a fully-integrated messaging platform that can be deployed in private, public, on-premise and hybrid environments, as hardware or software, Solace enables total architectural flexibility and application portability for companies. So the companies can now easily scale and evolve their infrastructure as business requirements change while preserving their application investment in messaging.

Amazon Web Services (AWS) is a collection of services that make up a cloud computing platform that helps organizations cost-effectively meet the growing requirements of Big Data, IoT and mobile applications. OpenStack, an open source software platform lets companies easily manage large pools of virtual compute, storage and networking resources within their own datacenters as a private cloud or as a part of PaaS (platform as a software) environments.

The Solace VMR will now be a part of an OpenStack-managed infrastructure so that the companies can easily incorporate Solace message routing to provide a shared multi-tenant Messaging-as-a-Service capability into their infrastructure and efficiently move data across their OpenStack-powered cloud environment.

“Amazon Web Services is one of the most popular and sophisticated public cloud environments in the world. The ability to add our multi-protocol message routing to the proven AWS environment with our Solace Virtual Message Router will enable companies to take their applications to another level,” said Shawn McAllister, CTO, Solace Systems.
