Kaazing Introduces IBM MQ Service for Kaazing WebSocket Gateway, Acquires Montage Studio

Jun 15, 2017

Kaazing, a provider of scalable, end-to-end application-to-application integration for the enterprise, introduced Kaazing IBM MQ Service, a major enhancement to the company’s flagship solution, Kaazing WebSocket Gateway (KWG). Simplifying and streamlining integration, the new service offers full support for IBM MQ messaging middleware within KWG, and the result is the industry’s highest performance solution for connecting IBM MQ infrastructure to web and mobile clients. Through Kaazing IBM MQ Service and KWG, Kaazing is enabling Global 2000 enterprises to deliver next-generation mobile apps to millions of users by seamlessly connecting their back-end systems to web and mobile clients.

The introduction of Kaazing IBM MQ Service aims to provide enterprises with a secure, cost-efficient extension for their middleware implementations. Not only that, but Kaazing IBM MQ Service is the highest-performing solution in the industry. It has been designed to fit directly into existing architectures without requiring prohibitively costly, time-intensive and risky “rip and replace” operations. Kaazing IBM MQ Service provides fully integrated support for IBM MQ messaging middleware.

Key features of Kaazing IBM MQ Service include:

  • Property-Based Routing: Through the property-based routing capabilities of Kaazing IBM MQ Service, hundreds of thousands of virtual queues can all share the same physical queue in IBM MQ Queue Manager, with KWG providing a single subscription to that queue.
  • Shared Topic Wildcard Subscription: This feature allows a single subscription from KWG to a wildcard topic name to serve thousands of the KWG clients subscribing to different individual topics.
  • Optimized Queue Receivers Handling: Kaazing IBM MQ Service allows multiple messages to be sent to each client before they are acknowledged. This read ahead capability enables optimized handling of queue receivers using IBM MQ’s native API.
  • KWG Integration & Optimization: Connections from KWG to IBM MQ can be fully secured, and the addition of Kaazing Enterprise Shield enables an application to access data with no open firewall ports. Furthermore, a key differentiator of Kaazing IBM MQ Service’s support is the ability to deliver optimal performance even with a high latency connection between KWG and the Queue Manager.

Additionally, Kaazing announced the acquisition of Montage Studio, a company whose app authoring platform enables enterprises to quickly and easily design, build and deploy highly immersive mobile and web apps. Through the acquisition, Kaazing now offers enterprises an end-to-end set of enterprise infrastructure and application integration solutions to help them embrace digital transformation and deliver world-class customer and employees experiences.
