Hybrid Cloud Event Integration: Integrate Your Enterprise and Cloud with Bluemix Integration Services
Application Platform

Redbooks, published 12 Feb 2016, last updated 18 Feb 2016

The event-centric hybrid cloud integration revolves around applications running based on events or messages. The new event-centric approach to hybrid cloud aims to simplify the task of managing these messages while increasing the overall reliability of the system. Event-centric applications work well in the cloud due to the varying intensity and frequency of events. These fluctuations fit well into a cloud infrastructure that can dynamically scale to fit those needs. An event-centric approach cuts down on communication overhead for an application, thus helping to speed up the development ... [more]
