Solace Boosts Messaging Appliance Throughput to 1.7PB/Day

Messaging specialist Solace Systems has introduced new network acceleration blades for its 3260 messaging appliance, capable of 40 gigabits/second bi-directional data transfer. That adds up, says the company, to a 80 gigabits/second total transfer rate, or 1.7 petabytes per day.

Solace’s new offering is addressing the growing need to support “big data in motion” – the process of transferring large volumes of data from one host to another. “Building the infrastructure to intelligently route big data by horizontally scaling software is expensive and inefficient so companies see significant savings by vertically scaling within the footprint of their Solace appliances,” says Solace CTO Shawn McAllister.
