With its message router appliances, Solace has embedded data movement logic and protocols into high-speed FPGAs and Network Processors to eliminate the latency and unpredictability associated with OS interrupts and context switching. All of Solace’s messaging capabilities are accessible through a unified API that’s available for common operating systems and programming languages. Solace message router appliances are easy to deploy, manage and upgrade over time, and feature an admin framework that’s easy to integrate with existing management tools and security systems so you can secure your system and troubleshoot faults.
