Push Technology Launches Diffusion 5.0 for Faster Time to Enterprise Mobile

New software development platform claims quickest route to market with enterprise-grade apps

London, UK and New York, NY - May 19, 2014 - Push Technology today unveiled the latest version of its enterprise-grade data distribution platform, Diffusion 5.0, to provide the fastest time to market and value to deliver mobile apps. With a new unified API, enhanced performance, high availability and easy integration with enterprise assets, the platform helps organizations get to market faster with high-performance, real-time apps and for these to be deployed across a range of mobile operating systems, networks and clients.

"Customer expectations are soaring as the mobile mind shift accelerates. To meet those expectations, enterprise mobile development teams must be capable of releasing high-quality apps quickly, and quite often, several times a year," explains Sean Bowen, CEO at Push Technology. "Yet, organizations are still wrestling with three major challenges; what apps to build, how to make them reliable and how to make them perform at scale. Our response in Diffusion 5.0 is to provide a solution that does more so you can be more productive, delivers faster time to value, offers continuous availability and easily integrates with enterprise assets."

Robin Knipe, Java developer at Racing Post, has trialed Diffusion 5.0. He explains, "We use its real-time data delivery to feed our clients live prices. Building our applications on top of such a stable and feature-rich platform makes development fast and easy. Having had an early look at Diffusion 5.0, I'm really looking forward to taking advantage of the architectural and DevOps benefits that come through the use of the new unified API. As we run multi-server configurations, we'll also get a lot of benefits from the new enhanced high availability capabilities."

New features include:

  • High Availability features including session replication, topic replication, and failover of active topic sources.
  • Control Client enables you to implement your control logic in any of the supported languages and locate it outside of the Diffusion server, supporting cloud-based solutions.
  • Unified API will make available the capabilities of standard clients, control clients, and event publishers in one consistent, modular interface.
  • Improved Performance serve up to 85 percent more messages per second to 25 percent more clients by using a new queuing mechanism.
  • New Authentication Model so you can write and configure both remote and local authentication handlers.

"Push Technology is breaking new ground in terms of moving data at scale, particularly in a mobile world and one evolving to the 'Internet of Things,'" said Julie Craig, research director, application management, Enterprise Management Associates. "Push Technology's Diffusion platform has the potential to become part of the fabric supporting the high scale, high speed apps and services of the future."

The Java-based middleware is able to intelligently understand data to automatically remove out-of-date or redundant data. As a result, customers can efficiently distribute fast changing data to a large number of simultaneously connected users. In a recent performance benchmark test based on a single small six core server (i.e. commodity tin), Diffusion was able to support 87,000 clients at a sustained rate of up to 15 million messages per second in aggregate at very low latency. The message size was 125 bytes.

Decisions about budgets and resources are often made without IT even having a seat at the table. As technologist we understand the value of DevOps - but do your business counterparts? If they don't, your DevOps initiatives could lose funding before they start. In her session at DevOps Summit, Jeanne Morain, Strategist / Author at iSpeak Cloud, LLC, will provide insights on how to bridge the gap between business and technology leaders. Attendees will learn prescriptive guidance on balancing workloads, critical communication processes and considerations for building out a solid return-on-inves...
The modern software development landscape consists of best practices and tools that allow teams to deliver software in a near-continuous manner. By adopting a culture of automation, measurement and sharing, the time to ship code has been greatly reduced, allowing for shorter release cycles and quicker feedback from customers and users. Still, with all of these tools and methods, how can teams stay on top of what is taking place across their infrastructure and codebase? Hopping between services and command line interfaces creates context-switching that slows productivity, efficiency, and may le...
For almost two decades, businesses have discovered great opportunities to engage with customers and even expand revenue through digital systems, including web and mobile applications. Yet, even now, the conversation between the business and the technologists that deliver these systems is strained, in large part due to misaligned objectives. In his session at DevOps Summit, James Urquhart, Senior Vice President of Performance Analytics at SOASTA, Inc., will discuss how measuring user outcomes – including how the performance, flow and content of your digital systems affects those outcomes – ca...
Clearly the way forward is to move to cloud be it bare metal, VMs or containers. One aspect of the current public clouds that is slowing this cloud migration is cloud lock-in. Every cloud vendor is trying to make it very difficult to move out once a customer has chosen their cloud. In his session at 17th Cloud Expo, Naveen Nimmu, CEO of Clouber, Inc., will advocate that making the inter-cloud migration as simple as changing airlines would help the entire industry to quickly adopt the cloud without worrying about any lock-in fears. In fact by having standard APIs for IaaS would help PaaS expl...
While testing is often ignored when it comes to DevOps - it could be the most important aspect of achieving true DevOps success.

Mobile, social, Big Data, and cloud have fundamentally changed the way we live. “Anytime, anywhere” access to data and information is no longer a luxury; it’s a requirement, in both our personal and professional lives. For IT organizations, this means pressure has never been greater to deliver meaningful services to the business and customers.
DevOps is speeding towards the IT world like a freight train and the hype around it is deafening. There is no reason to be afraid of this change as it is the natural reaction to the agile movement that revolutionized development just a few years ago. By definition, DevOps is the natural alignment of IT performance to business profitability. The relevance of this has yet to be quantified but it has been suggested that the route to the CEO’s chair will come from the IT leaders that successfully make the transition to a DevOps model. If this still seems foreign to you, I recommend reading up on D...
The principles behind DevOps are not new - for decades people have been automating system administration and decreasing the time to deploy apps and perform other management tasks.

At first adopted by enterprises to consolidate physical servers, virtualization is now widely used in cloud computing to offer elasticity and scalability. On the other hand, Docker has developed a new way to handle Linux containers, inspired by version control software such as Git, which allows you to keep all development versions. In his session at 17th Cloud Expo, Dominique Rodrigues, the co-founder and CTO of Nanocloud Software, will discuss how in order to also handle QEMU / KVM virtual machines versions, they have developed a new tool, called Vm_commit, which can create commits, backup ...
Even though you are running an agile development process, that doesn’t necessarily mean that your performance testing is being conducted in a truly agile way. Saving performance testing for a “final sprint” before release still treats it like a waterfall development step, with all the cost and risk that comes with that. In this post, we will show you how to make load testing happen early and often by putting SLAs on the agile task board.

DevOps delivers remarkable results. But does it help all of IT? Can traditional ‘mode 1’ IT benefit as much as innovative ‘mode 2’? How about the rest of your business? Or have you just shifted your bottleneck? And if so, what can you do about it? Improving dev and ops is necessary, but not sufficient. It often just shifts the burden sideways (e.g., to PMs, SQA, InfoSec, DBAs, NOC, etc.), upstream (to the PMO, Controller, Business Liaison, etc.), or downstream (to TechPubs, Service Desk, Training, etc.).

Culture is the most important ingredient of DevOps. The challenge for most organizations is defining and communicating a vision of beneficial DevOps culture for their organizations, and then facilitating the changes needed to achieve that. Often this comes down to an ability to provide true leadership. As a CIO, are your direct reports IT managers or are they IT leaders? The hard truth is that many IT managers have risen through the ranks based on their technical skills, not their leadership ability. Many are unable to effectively engage and inspire, creating forward momentum in the direction...
