Over the last few months we’ve written a lot about the SnapLogic’s elastic iPaaS architecture (iPaaS). In 2010, the company recognized that in order to be able to meet the changing application and data integration requirements of the Social, Mobile, Analytics (Big Data), Cloud and the Internet of Things (SMACT) era, a new platform would be required to support iPaaS architecture. A few of the organizing principles that went in to the building of the SnapLogic Elastic Integration Platform included:
- It had to be able to handle structured and unstructured data;
- It had to be built for data and API streaming, but also have the ability to handle batch data integration requirements;
- It had to go beyond point-to-point integration and deliver cloud-to-cloud and cloud-to-ground orchestration;
- It had to be built for hybrid integration use cases, with a software-defined architecture;
- It had to be delivered as a multi-tenant cloud service;
- It had to be able to scale out to take advantage of cloud and big data infrastructures;
- And finally, it had to have a user experience designed for “citizen integrators” without sacrificing power, performance and the ability to handle complex, multi-point data and application integration use cases.
Here are the top 5 posts we’re written in the past few months (based on blog traffic) about iPaaS architecture that will help you better understand the architecture of the SnapLogic Elastic Integration Platform, what we value, and why we believe heritage matters when it comes to cloud integration. (Not surprisingly, 3 of the 5 were authored by our Chief Scientist, Greg Benson.)
