PrismTech releases Vortex 1.2

PrismTech announces Vortex v1.2, the latest version of its award-winning intelligent data-sharing platform for the Internet of Things

Includes significant new functionality, with improved robustness, performance, scalability and ease of use

PrismTech™ announced the general availability of Vortex™ v1.2, the latest version of its award-winning intelligent data-sharing platform for the Internet of Things (IoT).  The Vortex platform provides the most comprehensive real-time data sharing solution for integrating device (sensors to servers), web, mobile and cloud environments.

Vortex is ideally suited for mission-critical distributed and Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) applications.  It is based on the Data Distribution Service (DDS) for Real-time Systems open standard and builds on proven technologies to provide an efficient solution for device-to-device, device-to-cloud and cloud-to-cloud Internet scale, real-time data sharing.  Vortex is a crucial enabler for systems that have to reliably and securely deliver high volumes of data with stringent end-to-end qualities-of-service (QoS); hence its suitability for delivering the right information to the right place at the right time.

Vortex v1.2 delivers significant benefits in terms of improved robustness, performance, scalability and ease of use.  It also includes the following new functionality:

  • Vortex OpenSplice™ 6.5 – support for the latest Java 5 PSM, a Streams API for ISO C++ and an overall performance improvement.
  • Vortex Cloud 1.2 – selective routing that allows users to control exactly what Topic data is shared across the Cloud and between LANs.
  • Vortex Insight 1.1 – support for system browser sorting / filtering and inclusion of a new Vortex Cloud instance browser.
  • Vortex Lite 1.0 – new low footprint DDS implementation targeting resource constrained embedded devices.

“Vortex is proving to be a key enabler for the Internet of Things,” said Angelo Corsaro, CTO, PrismTech.  “These latest enhancements help ensure that Vortex continues to be the most comprehensive data sharing platform in the industry.”
