TIBCO accelerates message processing

Cliff Saran

TIBCO Software has developed a messaging appliance that uses custom hardware to accelerate message processing. The product is designed to provide financial institutions and large manufacturing firms with real-time data to help them react quicker to changes. The company claims the hardware, called the P-7500, is 10 times faster than using just software, and reduces latency by 50%.

The product plugs into a company's network, allowing businesses with existing applications based on TIBCO's Rendezvous protocol to handle messages faster.

TIBCO claims the P-7500 Messaging Appliance will reduce the amount of hardware users need for messaging by a tenth.

Unlike many of today's hardware appliances, TIBCO Messaging Appliance does not use a microprocessor running Linux or Windows. Instead, TIBCO has taken a pure hardware approach, using field-programmable gate array (FPGA) and application-specific integrated circuit (ASIC) chips to hard-wire event handling into custom chips.
