Hardware-Based Middleware Solution Will Help Triton More Efficiently Track and Bill for Media Consumption
Solace Systems, the leading provider of messaging middleware appliances, today announced that Triton Digital, a leading digital service provider, will use Solace’s platform to distribute key operational data across their enterprise.
Triton will use Solace’s solution as the backbone of all inter-application messaging for functions including the real-time delivery of audio ads, continuous collection of client data usage metrics and coordination of mission-critical application events. With Solace, Triton also expects to reduce application complexity which will accelerate deployment and improve their reliability.
“Solace’s messaging middleware solution reduces the cost and complexity of our infrastructure while meeting all of our reliability, capacity and functionality requirements so we can concentrate on being the best digital service provider in the world.” said Jean-Francois Gadoury, CTO of Triton Digital. “By unifying local and long-distance data distribution with one API, Solace’s full-featured platform will also help us get new services to market more quickly by letting our developers focus on the business logic that differentiates us from our competitors, instead of coding ancillary messaging functionality into our applications.”
Solace’s appliances buffer data streams so applications can receive high-volume data at a rate they can handle without causing a backlog that impacts high-volume senders even over long-distance WAN links. Solace will guarantee the delivery of mission critical information to Triton’s business systems, which was not achievable with other messaging middleware solutions.
As Triton builds on its leadership position in the traditional and online radio markets to serve television and print clients, provisioning, tracking and billing for services is becoming much more complicated. The ActiveMQ messaging software they’ve used to date did not provide the reliability, flexibility or functionality they knew they’d need as they grow their business, and did not meet their WAN distribution requirements.
“By standardizing their global messaging middleware layer on Solace’s state of the art appliance, Triton Digital will save money while improving the performance, reliability and scalability of their system,” said Craig Betts, CEO of Solace. “As the delivery and consumption of content and media shifts even more completely to the internet, we look forward to being one of the enabling technologies that ensure that content creators and media channels are fairly compensated for their contributions.”
