"Our new Web Messaging functionality gives companies a competitive advantage."

Solace Systems has extended its hardware-based Unified Messaging Platform with the ability to stream real-time data over the internet at what it claims is up to three times the message rate and 1/100th the latency of competing software-based streaming solutions.

This new feature, called Solace Web Messaging, aims to allow companies to deploy applications that give users a rich, continuously-updated view of real-time information via desktop and mobile devices.

"Leveraging its wealth of low-latency enterprise experience, Solace presents a revolutionary shift in pushing real-time data over the internet," said Matt Davey, CTO at Lab49, a technology consulting firm that builds advanced solutions for the financial services industry. "Having early access to this technology, Lab49 has demonstrated that hardware-enabled web messaging can be harnessed by the financial industry's high performance pricing and dealing systems, such as single dealer platforms."

Solace Web Messaging has been available in early release with early adopters and partners since January. The general availability (GA) release is scheduled for spring 2011.

"The growth of the internet and proliferation of mobile devices and advanced browsing technologies has driven demand for more capable real-time channels between systems and end users," said Shawn McAllister, CTO at Solace Systems. "Our new Web Messaging functionality gives companies a competitive advantage by extending their real-time systems over the internet without deploying a dedicated streaming platform, and by offering unprecedented throughput and latency."
