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 process.
IBM® Hybrid Integration Services is a set of hybrid cloud capabilities in IBM Bluemix® that allows businesses to create hybrid clouds by connecting their Bluemix environment to on-premises systems at the application programming interface (API), data, or event level.
In November 2015, the IBM International Technical Support Organization (ITSO) IBM Redbooks® team published a Redbooks publication that covers hybrid cloud scenarios with Bluemix for API and data integrations, Hybrid Cloud Data and API Integration: Integrate Your Enterprise and Cloud with Bluemix Integration Services, SG24-8277, and can be found at the following website:
