TIBCO Software Inc., the integration and analytics solutions provider, has announced a number of enhancements to its container-based application integration solution, TIBCO BusinessWorks Container Edition 2.1, as well as new support for deploying the solution on Amazon EC2 Container Service (ECS) and Microsoft Azure Container Service cloud platforms.
With increased tooling for the development of cloud-native applications, including service registry and discovery, and circuit breaker patterns, TIBCO BusinessWorks Container Edition 2.1 allows users to build applications for nearly any environment with ease.
"The cloud market is evolving increasingly fast, and digital businesses must be agile to keep pace. We work hard to provide tools that not only simplify the process of building cloud-native applications, but also offer users flexibility to make changes they may want in the future," said Matt Quinn, executive vice president, products & technology, and chief technology officer, TIBCO. "TIBCO BusinessWorks Container Edition offers versatility, reduces risk, and gives CIOs peace of mind that they can enable hybrid cloud architectures that suit their needs and avoid lock in. We're pleased to announce extended platform support for Amazon Web Services and Microsoft Azure, as well as additional feature enhancements."
TIBCO's platform-agnostic approach allows customers to build once and deploy to virtually any cloud environment, including Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure, Pivotal, Docker, and Google. This flexibility gives users the freedom to build applications for one cloud environment, and easily move it to another should they choose.
Further tool enhancements specific to microservices patterns and web-scale APIs, include:
- Service Registry and Discovery enables microservices to dynamically discover and invoke other registered services.
- Circuit Breaker Patterns detect failures and encapsulate logic that prevents failures from constantly reoccurring, thereby protecting the overall system from adverse effects.
- Migration Toolkit supports a simple move directly from TIBCO ActiveMatrix BusinessWorks 5 to BusinessWorks Container Edition.
