Apcera Introduces NATS Streaming

Cloud Native Messaging Technology Powers IoT and Big Data Applications; Captures Events and Data With Simple, Scalable Architecture for Stream Data and Messaging

DENVER, CO--(Marketwired - Jul 12, 2016) - GopherCon -- Apcera, the leader in trust-first computing, today announced NATS Streaming. NATS, sponsored by Apcera, is a highly performant, secure and simple open source messaging platform used by leading companies like Ericsson, Baidu, HTC, Siemens, Pivotal and VMware. Available today, NATS Streaming adds key features that enable support for new classes of applications such as IoT and big data analytics. NATS Streaming is tightly coupled but loosely integrated with NATS, providing enterprise grade features without sacrificing NATS' core simplicity and performance advantages over alternative products such as Kafka and RabbitMQ.

Developers and enterprise IT organizations are looking for new approaches to leverage the massive amount of events and stream data that is being created across their multi-channel infrastructure such as web, mobile, and IoT devices. Businesses must respond with platforms that can adapt and respond in real-time with personalized customer engagement based on potentially thousands of different data points within and external to their IT infrastructure.

By deploying NATS Streaming, users can quickly create applications that securely scale to meet these new demands with a lightweight approach to stream processing. NATS Streaming integrates simply into deployments of both cloud-native and traditional application architectures and can be up and running in under 30 minutes.

"NATS Streaming is a tightly integrated solution for platforms that require simple, easy and lightweight IoT messaging," said Paulo Pires, active NATS contributor and services and infrastructure lead at littleBits."This introduction offers companies a highly performant open source architecture that also accelerates implementation and scales with any existing infrastructure."

The NATS community is continuing to experience rapid growth, and recently launched community-driven events in Denver, London, Barcelona, Toronto, Atlanta, San Francisco and Novosibirsk. To support the interest in extending the NATS ecosystem, the NATS Connector Framework was released in April 2016. Since the initial release, there have been numerous community-built connectors for leading technologies such as Apache Spark, REST, Redis PubSub and Socket.IO.

"We are experiencing a renaissance in clustered event and stream-based computing applications that traditional enterprise messaging middleware simply cannot address," said Larry McQueary, NATS Product Manager. "Developers and large-scale enterprises need simple and fast solutions for distributing events, rather than complex, re-purposed, over-engineered solutions. NATS solves this solution for the cloud control plane. NATS Streaming now addresses an even wider audience who is developing solutions aimed at IoT and connected devices."

"The NATS core team is comprised of some of the most senior engineers in the messaging field with over 100 years combined experience," said Derek Collison, founder and CEO, Apcera. "This expertise combined with rapid growth in community contributions has made NATS the trusted choice for a high performance, production ready messaging system."

NATS Streaming functionality includes:

  • Log-based persistence to capture real-time events
  • At-Least-Once Delivery model, providing reliable message delivery
  • Per message subscription rate matching
  • Replay/Restart capabilities
  • Last Value Semantics
  • Subject Based Authorization
