Blue Titan Software Inc. on Tuesday will ship Network Director 2.5, which the company is calling an enterprise service-oriented architecture (SOA) "Fabric."
The company describes an SOA Fabric as a network overlay that provides a unified control layer for Web services-based interactions.
"(Network Director) is essentially a run-time framework for Web services that works with any application that speaks Web services," said Sam Boonin, vice president of marketing at Blue Titan. "It basically provides lifecycle management and quality of service for Web services-based interactions."
Version 2.5 of Network Director allows users to define and enforce distributed, enterprise infrastructure policies. New features in Version 2.5 include scaling to as many as 2,000 messages per second on Linux hardware, which is two to three times faster than before; deployment across multiple network technologies; and a zero administrative effort for configuration or deployment.
Blue Titan describes a service-oriented architecture as the building and running of applications that communicate with distributed objects that are exposed as services.
Pricing for Network Director 2.5 begins at US$150,000.
