Build Cloud-native Applications Using TIBCO BusinessWorks Container Edition on AWS Marketplace

Blog: The Tibco Blog

With Amazon Web Services (AWS), you can provision compute power, storage, and other resources, gaining access to a suite of elastic IT infrastructure services as your business demands them. Among many other benefits, one of the major factors why this has been appealing is the ability to control costs in an elastic manner while providing complete flexibility and agility to use infrastructure on-demand.

To further maximize the advantages of the AWS cloud computing delivery model, developers are turning to a cloud-native approach to building and running applications.

A cloud-native application is a program that is designed specifically for a cloud computing architecture. They are designed to take advantage of cloud computing frameworks, which are composed of loosely-coupled cloud services. This means that developers must break down tasks into separate services that can run on several servers in different locations.

This notion of granularity requires solution architects to think more about composite in lieu of monolithic design. In composite design, you bring together a collection of services to create a business application.

When it comes to implementing these composite applications, the need for “integration logic” is critical for success. For example, you may need to:

While the developer can handle this integration logic manually, TIBCO BusinessWorks™ Container Edition was designed to hide the complexity of this integration from developers, allowing them to focus on the business logic of the application, and not the interconnecting of services.

TIBCO BusinessWorks Container Edition, available on the AWS Marketplace

TIBCO BusinessWorks Container Edition and plug-ins for AWS allow you to quickly and easily build cloud-native applications by connecting APIs, microservices and backend systems. With its drag-and-drop graphical development environment, graphical data mapper, and vast library of connectors, you can create cloud-native integration applications and deploy them on AWS, leveraging native features of AWS Elastic Container Service or your choice of Docker-based PaaS built on AWS for container management.

For developers working within the AWS ecosystem, the fact that BusinessWorks Container Edition is available on the AWS Marketplace provides:

Deep integration with AWS Ecosystem

To simplify deploying, BusinessWorks Container Edition on AWS TIBCO leverages AWS CloudFormation to set up all the necessary resources, collectively known as a CloudFormation stack. This model also allows BusinessWorks Container Edition to integrate seamlessly with a variety AWS Services like EC2 Container Service (ECS), EC2 Container Registry (ECR), Application Load Balancer (ALB), CloudWatch, etc., to leverage their capabilities for container management, logging, auto-scaling, load balancing, service discovery, and much more. This also removes opportunities for manual error, increases efficiency, and ensures consistent configurations over time.

The capabilities provided as part of this integration include:

TIBCO BusinessWorks™ Container Edition and plug-ins for AWS hide the complexity of integrating APIs, microservices, and backend systems from the developers allowing them to focus on the business logic of their applications. You can now access BusinessWorks™ Container Edition on the AWS Marketplace, leveraging a consumption based pricing model allowing you to only pay for the software and AWS resources on an hourly basis and billed by AWS after the usage.
