Middleware proves costly to the enterprise.
Enterprises considering a shift to service-oriented architecture (SOA) are often confronted with the need for ― and the cost of ― additional middleware. Many SOA solutions require yet another layer of proprietary middleware via yet another IT stack. In fact, the costs associated with adding more middleware may outweigh the savings sought in shifting to SOA in the first place. After the cost of purchasing and deploying middleware, there are the expenses for maintenance, the price of expensive servers, and the cost to the organization created by vendor lock-in. If organizations could eliminate their dependency on middleware, they could not only adopt SOA more quickly and successfully, but they could significantly reduce IT operating costs as well. That’s exactly what solutions from FuseSource are designed to do.
The end of middleware as you know it with FuseSource.
FuseSource holds the key to eliminating middleware dependency and reducing IT costs. FuseSource products are an open source SOA
infrastructure suite that supports the demanding requirements of mission-critical applications deployed in diverse and complex IT environments. FuseSource products create a multi-platform, multi-protocol solution that connects diverse and lightweight endpoints without an expensive and cumbersome centralized server, and without requiring more middleware. The benefits to the organization are significant, allowing them to:
- Eliminate the need for a centralized server. With FuseSource, communications between systems don’t have to pass through a centralized hub. FuseSource endpoints are independently configurable, so services can be extended, modified, and hot deployed without disrupting the rest of the enterprise.
- Avoid vendor lock-in. FuseSource is technology-neutral and standards-based. Each FuseSource endpoint operates independently and need not conform to a single platform, transport, or protocol. IT teams can leverage the technologies that best meet the requirements of their applications without needing to standardize all functions across a large enterprise.
- Leverage existing middleware. Since IT architects don’t have to use a single set of standards at every endpoint, enterprises can leave existing middleware investments in place. FuseSource eliminates the disruption of having to replace middleware by leveraging existing components.
A comprehensive SOA platform offers alternatives to middleware.
The FuseSource team also offers EAI technology, an enterprise service bus, JAX-WS information, message oriented middleware tools and open source MQ products.
