AdroitLogic: Bringing Exceptional Performance to the ESB

An Intellyx Brain Candy Brief

The Enterprise Service Bus (ESB) market matured several years ago, but AdroitLogic continues to innovate in this once-moribund corner of the integration market.

Its UltraESB-X isn’t open source (although it incorporates a few open source components), and it isn’t an Integration-as-a-Service offering (although it can run in the cloud and offers elastic scalability).

What makes AdroitLogic special are several sophisticated tricks for squeezing every last bit of performance out of the underlying hardware – regardless of whether the software is running on VMs or in containers:

  • The ESB leverages processing capabilities on servers’ network cards, bypassing the CPU for moving data from one part of memory to another – a technique called ‘zero copy.’
  • UltraESB-X also avoids Java garbage collection bottlenecks via the reuse of file objects on RAM disks, moving data in and out of files without the overhead of creating them, tearing them down, or garbage collecting them.
  • RAM disks are virtual representations of persistent storage in memory – a decades-old technique for maximizing throughput performance. AdroitLogic also uses RAM disks to optimize the performance of complex data transformations.

AdroitLogic also offers the Integration Platform Server which improves the management and reliability of clustering in Kubernetes.
