I’ve been pondering for a while on how to showcase some replay functionality in our AMPS product in a way that’s general enough that everyone understands the concept, yet provides a solution metaphor that easily translates into other domains. Ideally, the data would be from some real-world system, where time-series,...

  Feb 26, 2016   |      60East

The Advanced Message Processing System (AMPS) from 60East Technologies is used in production for thousands of enterprise messaging applications. These applications use AMPS because they have the most demanding throughput and latency requirements for publish/subscribe messaging. These applications also take advantage of the AMPS durable message storage, historical replay and...

Does your network bandwidth ever feel like this congested freeway? Do you ever have a subscription that gets so many messages that it really cannot process them all? If you answered yes, why haven’t you tried using conflated subscriptions? Conflated subscriptions help to reduce the bandwidth for a subscription and...

One of the most popular features of AMPS is the State-of-the-World (or SOW), which allows applications to quickly retrieve the most current version of a message. Many applications use the SOW as a high-performance streaming database, quickly retrieving the current results of the query and then automatically receiving updates as...
