TriggerMesh fires up open source integration for Kubernetes
TriggerMesh is a cloud-native integration platform provider.
This autum/fall season say the company announce the launch of the TriggerMesh Integration Platform as an open source project for building event-driven architecture.
The software and tooling here is available under the Apache Software License 2.0 from now.
TriggerMesh aims to simplify and accelerate the act of connecting applications and data across multiple clouds and on-premises datacentres.
The TriggerMesh approach to integration is very similar to the way Infrastructure-as-Code (IaC) solutions such as Anisble, Chef, HashiCorp and Puppet use to deploy infrastructure by DevOps teams.
This free and open source platform allows DevOps practitioners (some of whom will be cloud operators) to deploy Integrations-as-CodeTM (notice the trademarked symbol) to speed up development and improve flexibility compared with typical Integration Platform-as-a-Service (IPAAS) solutions.
TriggerMesh co-founder and head of product Sebastien Goasguen says he is passionate about the open source development and distribution model
Goasguen says that this platform takes an event-driven approach to integration, consuming messages from various sources (e.g. AWS SQS, Google Storage, Azure Activity Logs), filtering and transforming them, combining processing capabilities with serverless functions and connecting with message sinks (e.g. Elasticsearch, AWS S3, Apache Kafka).
TriggerMesh can integrate with legacy enterprise services buses (ESBs) like MuleSoft, TIBCO, IBM MQ, and RabbitMQ to create workflows across applications or data sinks to other systems (e.g. Azure Data Lakes or Snowflake).
“We have always known that we would be launching our platform as an open source project but needed to build a foundation that would allow for additional contributors and users to be successful,” said Mark Hinkle, CEO and co-founder of TriggerMesh.
Hinkle says it is a ‘solid core product’ that can be easily consumed by Kubernetes users.
“We have expanded our engineering team and added Matt Ray, previously from Chef, to lead our developer relations to ensure users of the technology will be successful,” added Hinkle.
Commercially, TriggerMesh provides support and services as well as a graphical user interface that offers a visual integration editor, enterprise authentication and authorisation with organisational support, and the capability to develop custom integration components.
