We are pleased to announce the launch of TIBCO DataSynapse GridServer Engine – cloud edition in the Azure Marketplace. Available from today, this collaboration expands on the HPC burst work we have been doing with DataSynapse customers over the last few months to provide an easy deployment method in a cost effective manner.
Over the last 15 years TIBCO Software has been working to empower executives, developers and business users through the integration of applications and ecosystems to analyze data and create real-time solutions.
TIBCO DataSynapse GridServer is a service execution platform for dynamically scaling any application at any time across grid infrastructure. As a result of its improvement in productivity, performance and uptime to existing applications, it is used heavily within Financial Services for parallel computing certain risk calculations. By bringing DataSynapse GridServer Engine 6.2.0 to Azure, Microsoft its extending the possibilities of this platform by providing infrastructure flexibility, increased scalability and cost control.
The pay-as-you-go Marketplace image is intended for those customers that have an existing GridServer DataSynapse installation on-premises and wish to extend the environment beyond its current capacity into Azure.
This solution provides one or more virtual machines in Azure which are configured to connect to the director, the IP and FQDN that are provided at the time the Marketplace offering is purchased. The solution assumes that the customer is either running one or more on-premises managers and has a VPN connection between their Azure account and their managers already set up, or they are running their grid in Azure and already have a virtual network to which they intend to add the engine VM.
TIBCO has provided the option of installing the image on three VM families, A-series, D-series and Dv2. This was intended to give customers a range of price vs. performance and appeal to a number of different workloads.
"Microsoft Azure and TIBCO have worked closely together to deliver the perfect solution that combines Azure's compute resources with TIBCO's Datasynapse Grid Server in a pay-as-you-go model. This enables our investment banking customers to tackle new regulations, such as Basel III's FRTB and meet the large compute demands."
- Mike Kennedy – TIBCO Sr. Director of Engineering
We are excited to see the continued development of DataSynapse GridServer for use with critical compute workloads and enable the benefits of the scale and elasticity of the Azure cloud. Further information on this release can be found here.
