Delivering a software-based solution on this diverse range of platforms can be simplified using commercial off the shelf (COTS) middleware to provide a rich set of commodity services such as distributed messaging, standard model-based system and device management, and non-stop high availability. The solution developer can focus on building the application that provides the differentiating value.
This presentation will describe a unified approach to middleware that offers a consistent application environment and feature set across a wide range of platform types and system scale. Access to the right set of middleware services at any scale allows system and application designers to quickly deliver complete, right-sized solutions.
