TIBCO Expands Leadership in Ultra-Low Latency Messaging with its First Integrated Messaging Appliance
New Addition to TIBCO Rendezvous Product Family; Helps Cut Data Center Power Use and Optimizes Space Utilization; Industry's Only Appliance To Implement TIBCO Rendezvous® Software
TUCON®, San Francisco, April 30, 2008 - TIBCO Software Inc. (NASDAQ: TIBX) today announced a significant addition to the company's market-leading messaging technology, unveiling a hardware messaging appliance specifically designed to accelerate the capabilities and performance of TIBCO Rendezvous® software. Building on TIBCO Rendezvous' breakthrough reliability, predictability and manageability, this tightly integrated hardware/software combination will offer improved application-to-application, ultra-low latency messaging throughput for mission critical data.
With TIBCO's integrated hardware/software messaging solution in place, organizations will also be able to reduce the amount of server space required to run the Rendezvous® software by a 10 to 1 ratio, cutting data center power use and optimizing space and resource utilization.
"For financial services organizations such as exchanges, brokerages and hedge funds, every microsecond counts when it comes to accessing and disseminating mission-critical data," said Denny Page, chief engineer for TIBCO. "TIBCO is answering this industry need with a company first: a powerful integrated solution that combines the performance, reliability and manageability of our Rendezvous software with a cost and energy efficient dedicated hardware messaging appliance. TIBCO Messaging Appliance™ will provide the improvements in latency and throughput needed to drive increased business responsiveness and competitive advantage."
Rendezvous users will be able to take advantage of the performance improvements enabled by the appliance without any code changes to their existing applications that are already enabled by Rendezvous.
This appliance is TIBCO's first foray into hardware and TIBCO has chosen experienced hardware vendor Solace Systems to act as its manufacturing partner in bringing its new messaging appliance to market. The product is scheduled for release in late calendar year 2008, with pricing to be announced.
