Solace and SEEBURGER

Seeburger-BIS1SEEBURGER provides business integration and secure managed file transfer (MFT) solutions that streamline business processes, reduce operational costs, facilitate governance/compliance, and give visibility to the edges of the supply chain. SEEBURGER’s solutions are delivered as a unified platform that lowers TCO and accelerates implementation.

SEEBURGER and Solace have combined SEEBURGER’s award-winning Business Integration Server with Solace’s messaging middleware appliances to support customers with high volume or distributed business transaction requirements. Integrating SEEBURGER’s business-to-business (B2B) and managed file transfer (MFT) offerings with Solace’s messaging appliances increases transaction throughput 10 to 100 times over third-party software message buses. The solution also reduces costs by consolidating the equivalent of dozens of servers running software into a single appliance.

“Secure, fully auditable business integration capabilities like business-to-business transactions and managed file transfer are the cornerstone of most globally distributed data applications,” said Denis King, SVP, global field services and strategic alliances for Solace Systems. “This partnership lets us offer our customers the functionality of the highly regarded SEEBURGER product family for that purpose, and help SEEBURGER customers accelerate, scale and simplify their existing deployments.”

Business applications for the solution include payment processing, order execution and corporate statements for financial services firms; customer provisioning and monthly billing for telecommunications companies; smart meter and smart grid data for utilities; and many others.

“As transaction volumes rise in every industry and more business process are distributed globally, our customers require more information delivery horsepower than software-based message buses can provide,” said Rohit Khanna, EVP, global strategy and corporate development for SEEBURGER. “Integrating our BIS platform with Solace solves the problem by boosting processing power by a factor as high as 100 while also supplying the deployment, consolidation, management and cost benefits of an appliance.”

Deployment Options and Availability

Solace’s appliances can be used with the SEEBURGER B2B Gateway component of SEEBURGER’s platform, the SEEBURGER Managed File Transfer component, or both. Together the components enable consolidated management and reporting across all internal and external file transfer activity which simplifies IT infrastructure, reduces TCO and streamlines corporate and regulatory compliance efforts. The SEEBURGER platform can also be used to integrate enterprise applications and automate business processes.

The joint solution is available now through Solace or SEEBURGER, and can be deployed with either of Solace’s messaging appliances, the 4U Solace 3260 or 2U Solace 3230.
