even more exciting than the explosion in the number of Internet enabled devices, is the way developers will be able to innovate through the interconnection of all of these things.
Cooper City, FL (PRWEB) April 13, 2009
Linxter, Inc., provider of in-the-cloud middleware, today announces the release of Linxter version 1.0 for the rapid development of communication-based products and services. Linxter offers software developers an easy-to-use, ubiquitous communication framework for secure and reliable messaging among applications, devices, and systems, allowing data to be exchanged among disparate systems.
With message-oriented middleware hosted in the cloud, developers can quickly and easily take advantage of asynchronous, stateful messaging to connect their distributed applications. All of the communication plumbing, the infrastructure and coding complexities, are removed from the product development timeline and maintenance budget. As a result, developers do not have to invest themselves in messaging expertise and infrastructure, allowing them to focus instead on the core value proposition of their products and services.
Linxter reduces the time to market for applications by automating integration. Developers can integrate Linxter into their development projects in less than five minutes and master the technology in less than a day. The technology consists of three main components: 1. The Linxter Internet Service Bus (ISB), which is the back-end infrastructure that processes messages between Linxter enabled programs, 2. The Linxter Software Development Kit (SDK), which contains the code needed to integrate applications with the Linxter ISB, and 3. The Linxter Web Manager, a user interface for administering programs and accounts.
In addition to bundling and automating the complex tasks required to create communication-based products and services, Linxter offers real-time management of messaging configurations. The ability to change a variety of message settings on the fly is ideal for developers working on Application-to-Application (App2App), Machine-to-Machine (M2M) and Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) projects.
Designed to be platform and network agnostic, Linxter aims to be the technology that clears the pathways for communication among all Internet-enabled things. Jason Milgram, CEO and Founder, says "even more exciting than the explosion in the number of Internet enabled devices, is the way developers will be able to innovate through the interconnection of all of these things." For Linxter, the first phase to becoming a ubiquitous communications framework is an SDK for .NET, which will soon be followed by SDKs for REST, Java, and others.
Facilitating the transition from Linxter beta to Linxter 1.0 is a series of Quick Starts (open source programs that demonstrate Linxter's key features) and a thirty-day free trial account. Once a trial expires, the account is charged based on usage (number of and size of message transactions). For a comparison, the cost per Linxter message is just a fraction of the cost of an SMS message.
In January Linxter was named Microsoft's Startup of the Day and joined the Microsoft BizSpark program which has provided an opportunity for the company to use a broad set of Microsoft platform tools, technologies and product licenses.
Additional pricing information, including an estimated cost calculator and details on flat rate licensing options, is available at http://linxter.com/pricing.
