Tervela Releases Node.js Support for High-Scale Streaming Applications

Tervela's Big Data in Motion platform gives multi-instance Node.js applications faster, more resilient streaming capabilities.

ACTON, Mass., Dec. 11, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Tervela, a provider of market-leading data movement solutions for big data environments, today announced that Tervela Turbo now supports Node.js, a popular open-source software platform for building scalable web applications. Released as an add-on to Tervela Turbo, Tervela's high-performance big data in motion engine, this integration enables real-time streaming in multi-instance Node.js applications, solving a common challenge for Node.js applications built at scale.

Node.js's event-based programming model is well-suited for applications that serve real-time information. However, when these applications run on more than one instance of Node.js, the need to move data across instances and persistence layers in a fault-tolerant way impacts performance and application complexity. The Tervela–Node.js API, available for download on GitHub, was co-developed by Tervala customer Pollenware C2FO, the global market for working capital and risk-free profit.  Pollenware C2FO built the prototype to stream financial feed market data from its server environment directly out to web and mobile clients.

"Tervela makes it easy to share information over different Node.js instances with its data fabric technology. As a result we were able to easily extend our data-intensive publish-subscribe system all the way to the browser for more than 100,000 C2FO market customers," said Pete Thomas, CTO of Pollenware C2FO. "Working in partnership with Tervela, we eliminated the need to build our own fault-tolerance and failover systems for streaming data."

Node.js support is the first add-on to Tervela Turbo since it was released in October 2012. The integration combines a simplified Node.js-compatible API, WebSockets support, and Turbo's powerful guaranteed messaging and data caching features, and more. Typical examples of how Tervela Turbo is used to build Node.js applications include:

  • Posts and messages in social media applications
  • Market and transactional information in financial applications
  • Trending and recommendations in eCommerce engines
  • Player state and action in multi-player gaming
  • Event & resource monitoring for distributed applications & networks

"We are very fortunate to have allies like Pollenware to contribute to our development cycles and advise us from a customer's perspective.  Pollenware's innovative vision has helped us develop the Node.js API and is helping other organizations connect directly to Tervela Turbo for high-reliability, secure and scalable applications which will eliminate the frustrations that some have with open-source scaling options," said Barry Thomas, CTO of Tervela.

Tervela Turbo is a high-performance data movement engine that feeds mission-critical applications on the front-line of business with large-scale, streamed data. The product was built for real-time business intelligence and operational analytics that rely on big data in motion. It supports large-scale, real-time data capture and fault-tolerant distribution into heterogeneous application and analytical environments.

The Tervela Turbo Node.js API is free for developers to download from GitHub at https://github.com/Tervela/tvanode. It works with Tervela Turbo, available to download for free in development and test environments at http://www.tervela.com/download.

Fifty billion connected devices and still no winning protocols standards. HTTP, WebSockets, MQTT, and CoAP seem to be leading in the IoT protocol race at the moment but many more protocols are getting introduced on a regular basis.

In his session at @ThingsExpo, Chris Matthieu, co-founder and CTO of Octoblu, walk you through how Oct...
Major trends and emerging technologies – from virtual reality and IoT, to Big Data and algorithms – are helping organizations innovate in the digital era. However, to create real business value, IT must think beyond the ‘what’ of digital transformation to the ‘how’ to harness emerging trends, innovation and disruption. Architecture is the key that underpins and ties all these efforts together. In the digital age, it’s important to invest in architecture, extend the enterprise footprint to the cl...
Almost everyone sees the potential of Internet of Things but how can businesses truly unlock that potential. The key will be in the ability to discover business insight in the midst of an ocean of Big Data generated from billions of embedded devices via Systems of Discover. Businesses will also need to ensure that they can sustain that insight by leveraging the cloud for global reach, scale and elasticity.
A critical component of any IoT project is what to do with all the data being generated. This data needs to be captured, processed, structured, and stored in a way to facilitate different kinds of queries. Traditional data warehouse and analytical systems are mature technologies that can be used to handle certain kinds of queries, but they are not always well suited to many problems, particularly when there is a need for real-time insights.
One of biggest questions about Big Data is “How do we harness all that information for business use quickly and effectively?” Geographic Information Systems (GIS) or spatial technology is about more than making maps, but adding critical context and meaning to data of all types, coming from all different channels – even sensors.
