Combining Open Source Runtime Environment with Hardware-based Messaging Platform Accelerates Development and Performance of Event-Driven Applications
Node.js is an increasingly popular runtime environment because it enables “event-driven” programming so real-time applications publish information and consume resources only when necessary. Solace’s appliances make it easy for applications running in Node.js to share real-time data with users locally and around the world by efficiently distributing it over LANs, WANs, and the internet.
Unlike software-based solutions constrained by the limitations of general purpose operating systems, servers and disks, Solace offers high speed and scale in a compact “rack-and-run” appliance that supports millions of messages a second.
“The combination of Node.js and Solace makes it easier and less expensive to build, deploy and scale web applications by enabling the event-driven distribution of information with a fraction of the code and datacenter resources needed using other methods,” said Shawn McAllister, Solace’s chief technology officer. “As more large scale enterprise applications and consumer services are deployed on the Node platform, they’ll need the cost-effective performance and scalability that our messaging appliance provides.”
