Introducing Vortex Lite Webcast

Date: 27 January 2015

Why Attend:

  • Learn about what makes Vortex Lite the right DDS implementation for resource constrained embedded IoT devices and environments,
  • Understand how some of the features provided by Lite simplify application development and ease porting across computing / networking stacks,
  • Learn about Lite’s performance characteristics.

Abstract:

Vortex Lite brings Data Distribution Service (DDS) connectivity to resource constrained embedded systems. As a first class citizen of the Vortex platform it can be used for peer-to-peer fog / edge computing between embedded devices as well as gateways and for very efficient device to cloud data sharing. Vortex Lite has been designed with efficiency and portability in mind. This makes it the fastest DDS implementation on the market on enterprise grade hardware and the most lightweight on embedded targets. Likewise its architecture makes it highly portable across computing / networking stacks.

This webcast will introduce Vortex Lite, provide an overview of its architecture, its design choices as well as highlighting its performance characteristics. The webcast will also explain the role played by Lite within the Vortex family and how it can be used for both device-to-device (fog / edge computing) as well as device-to-cloud data sharing.

The webcast will last approximately one hour.

PrismTech Announces General Availability of Vortex, the Intelligent Data Sharing Platform for the Industrial Internet of Things

Based on the Data Distribution Service open standard, Vortex is optimally suited for IIoT systems such as those targeted for smart city, smart grid, transportation, healthcare and industrial automation environments

Boston, MA, USA – October 13, 2014 – PrismTech™, a global leader in software platforms for distributed systems, today announced its new Vortex™ Intelligent Data-Sharing Platform is now generally available for evaluation and purchase.  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 Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) applications and is based on the Data Distribution Service (DDS) for Real-time Systems open standard.  Vortex 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.  It 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.

In comparison to other proposed IIoT protocols such as MQTT, AMQP, XMPP and CoAP only DDS can provide the real-time, many-to-many, managed connectivity required by high-performance device-to-device applications.  DDS is also emerging as a key interoperable messaging protocol for connecting real-time device networks to cloud based Data Centers.

Vortex creates a system-wide global data space offering more than 20 configurable QoS to ensure the performance, efficiency, agility, security and robustness required of business-critical systems.  It thus helps system integrators, OEMs, device vendors and cloud service providers deliver high-performance IIoT system solutions for many vertical markets, including smart cities and urban environments, smart grid and energy, transportation, healthcare, IT & networks, and industrial automation.

The Vortex platform includes Vortex Café for mobile phones and tablets, Vortex Lite for embedded sensors, Vortex Cloud for cloud services and Vortex OpenSplice™ for corporate systems.

From a Starter Kit (Café, Web and tools) to the full platform suite, Vortex components are delivered in convenient and affordable development and deployment bundles to simplify the evaluation and procurement process.

The Vortex family also comes with a complete set of tools to support system development and management (e.g. configuring, testing, optimizing, monitoring and recording system behavior) and it provides a rich and open API for integration with other IIoT application development technologies, such as IDEs, Java EE application servers, M2M platforms and analytics engines.

“We developed Vortex to specifically address the performance needs and requirements of the Internet of Things, particularly the most demanding and business-critical applications,” said Steve Jennis, SVP Corporate Development, PrismTech.  “Vortex is an extremely powerful and flexible platform that enables all IoT end-point applications to share data in real-time — mobile employees, smart machines, tiny sensors, enterprise / cloud applications including data analytics and legacy systems.”

Vortex is available for free 30-day evaluation from PrismTech’s website at: http://www.prismtech.com/vortex/software-downloads.

PrismTech to Present Vortex Intelligent Data Sharing Platform at Industrial Internet Consortium Meeting

Vortex presentation features as part of IIC’s “member information sessions” at its quarterly meeting in Austin, Texas

Boston, MA, USA – September 05, 2014 – PrismTech™, a global leader in software platforms for distributed systems, will be a featured presenter during the “member information sessions” prior to the start of the Industrial Internet Consortium’s quarterly meeting scheduled in September in Austin, Texas.

The day-long member information sessions are scheduled September 15 at the Sheraton Austin Hotel at the Capitol in Austin and will feature several consortium members.  PrismTech’s session titled “Vortex™: The Intelligent Data Sharing Platform for the Industrial Internet of Things” will run from 11:15 am to 12:15 pm.  Company executives and technical leaders will provide an overview of the Vortex platform for Industrial Internet environments, including a detailed Q&A session.

A public forum titled “The Industrial Internet: A Sense of the Future” will run in parallel with the member information sessions.  The Industrial Internet Consortium quarterly meeting, hosted in the same location, will run September 16-18.

Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) applications are naturally data-centric and operate as data-flow systems where (1) data is efficiently and securely gathered from a large and disparate set of end systems and applications, such as embedded, mobile, web, enterprise and cloud applications, (2) high volume data flows are analysed in real-time and stored for long term analytics, and (3) intelligence derived by the analytics engines, processed data and control decisions are efficiently and securely shared.

Information is the currency of the IIoT, therefore the selection of the data-sharing technology is a critical element of successful IIoT systems. The market is currently considering a number of different technology solutions; among these, the OMG’s Data Distribution Service (DDS) is emerging as the standard that best fulfils the data sharing needs of IIoT systems and applications.

This presentation will (1) introduce PrismTech’s Vortex: the only DDS-based platform designed ground up to address the data-sharing needs of the most challenging IIoT systems, (2) explain how Vortex compares to other technologies and addresses the efficiency, performance, scalability, interoperability, and security needs of IIoT systems, and (3) highlight a number of key use cases that demonstrate how Vortex is being used today.

Vortex includes components to connect and share real-time information between mobile phones and tablets (Vortex Café), sensors and machines (Vortex Lite), Cloud services (Vortex Cloud), from its Starter Kit (Café and tools) to the full Vortex suite, its components are delivered in convenient and affordable development and deployment bundles to simplify the evaluation and procurement process.
