Solace’s products give us a great deal of operational confidence and flexibility to meet that commitment as our offerings and user base grow over time.
Ottawa, Canada (PRWEB) April 03, 2012
Solace Systems, a leading provider of middleware appliances, today announced that leading social entertainment destination Myspace has selected Solace’s messaging appliances as the activity stream monitoring backbone for their operational metrics platform. The new architecture was selected after a thorough review of alternatives and will be replacing an existing open source implementation.
To effectively manage such a large web property, Myspace relies on a high-volume stream of monitoring messages which gather real-time statistics on system health, security and usage across the entire site. The Solace platform captures these statistics and provides reliable, high-scale delivery across the LAN and WAN to big data repositories like Hadoop and Apache Solr as well as Myspace’s custom analytics applications. This data and the analytics performed against it are the core set of insights used to present Myspace users with highly relevant content and advertising.
“We are committed to providing our users the best social entertainment experience on the web,” said Fabrizio Blanco, CTO at Myspace. “Solace’s products give us a great deal of operational confidence and flexibility to meet that commitment as our offerings and user base grow over time.”
“Web-based properties like Myspace are at the leading edge of many of the most interesting real-time, big data problems in the world,” said Craig Betts, CEO of Solace Systems. “We’re pleased to be partnered with a company that has such a strong focus on delivering customer value.”
