With cloud connectors, developers can integrate in minutes instead of weeks or even months. The code is already written, so developers simply have to worry about consuming it
Hollywood, FL (Vocus) April 20, 2010
Linxter, Inc., provider of message-oriented cloud middleware, today announces the release of a cloud connector service for Amazon SQS, available on the Cloud Middleware directory. This cloud connector enables developers who work with SQS to take advantage of local encrypted transactional queues, Internet connection retires, and other Linxter features.
Cloud connectors provide an in-the-cloud integration service between as-a-service offerings. The Linxter - Amazon SQS connector provides such a service, connecting the Linxter cloud messaging platform and Amazon’s Simple Queue Service. With this cloud integration, developers who work with SQS can quickly and easily take advantage of the many communication plumbing features Linxter offers. For developers who work with Linxter, they can easily integrate with solutions already using SQS.
"With cloud connectors, developers can integrate in minutes instead of weeks or even months. The code is already written, so developers simply have to worry about consuming it," said Jason Milgram, CEO of Linxter. He also added, "The cloud connector for Amazon SQS is the first in our lineup of ready-made integrations. Our next connectors will support Twitter and Windows Azure blob, table and queue, with more to follow."
Amazon SQS offers a reliable, highly scalable, hosted queue for storing small messages as they travel between computers. Their hosted queues live in the cloud and can store messages up to 8KBs in size for up to four days. Developers add code to their program in order to utilize SQS, which is made available through a web API.
The Linxter SDK consists of a series of built-in web services that utilize a local, encrypted SQLite database. The SDK can be added to a program in about a minute, and with just a few simple method calls, encrypts your data (the message Body can be up to 1MB in size and can additionally have zero to many file attachments), places it in local transactional queues, and transfers it across the Internet through secure, reliable, dynamic communication channels.
An open source sample app is provided with the cloud connector. Using this test client, developers who have worked with SQS before will appreciate that the SQS requests and parameters used by this cloud service are unchanged, and that they can become immediately productive. For developers who are new to SQS, the sample app creates the format of each SQS operation for them, allowing them to begin using SQS with almost no training.
