“It is not easy to be a pioneer – but oh, it is fascinating!” – Elizabeth Blackwell
I echo these feelings of excitement with Elizabeth Blackwell, the first woman to become a medical doctor, as I share that TIBCO Cloud Integration – Flogo® (PAYG) (pay-as-you-go) was launched this week on the AWS Marketplace.
The new TIBCO Cloud Integration – Flogo® (PAYG) provides an ultralight app engine which is event-driven by design and about 50 times cheaper to operate than traditional Java-based frameworks, making it the best fit for exploring new ways of developing applications for all kinds of use cases.
The announcement, made at AWS re:Invent, extends TIBCO Cloud Integration iPaaS offering with flexible usage-based per-second pricing for running ultralight, event-driven apps in containers on AWS using a container service of your choice (AWS Fargate, Amazon Elastic Container Service (ECS) or Amazon Elastic Container Service for Kubernetes (EKS)).
Unprecedented developer productivity and consumption-based pricing
This week AWS also announced AWS Marketplace for Containers, with TIBCO being a major launch partner. TIBCO and the AWS Marketplace team have been collaborating for months to offer AWS Marketplace developers the flexibility to subscribe anytime and pay as you go with per-second billing.
TIBCO Cloud Integration offers a truly cloud-native design and deployment experience to our users with unprecedented flexibility in terms of technical capabilities and deployment options. Flexible consumption-based pricing is a key aspect of cloud-native software which is, unfortunately, often overlooked by many other software vendors.
The new TIBCO Cloud Integration – Flogo® (PAYG) offering modernizes and accelerates application development and integration with native container based deployment and per-second usage-based pricing. To put it simply, if you run a Flogo application for 10 minutes, you pay only for those 10 minutes, not for an entire hour like with the previous pay per hour model. You have the flexibility to run the application in a container using your choice of supported AWS container services: ECS, Fargate or EKS.
We’ve just made it easier and cheaper to deploy Flogo apps in containers
The new Marketplace Listing provides a docker image, Flogo® Studio Image, to launch the Flogo® Studio web UI in a docker container. The web-native design experience helps developers develop, test, and build Flogo® apps in a web browser.
The listing also provides a docker image, Flogo® Runtime Base Image, to allow developers to package Flogo® app binary into a docker image and run it in containers using ECS, Fargate or EKS. To further simplify the process of deploying Flogo® apps in containers and also leverage the AWS infrastructure, we have built CloudFormation templates to help you quickly spin up AWS infrastructure required run Flogo® apps in containers with high availability and load balancing!
Take advantage of modern tools, faster development
Developers are always on the lookout for new technologies that help them develop and deploy applications faster This new announcement highlights how TIBCO helps developers support event-driven architectures powered by increasing adoption of containers, serverless, and edge computing, and do so cost-effectively. So if you are looking to build lightweight, event-driven microservices applications and run them in containers on AWS using Fargate, ECS or EKS in a cloud-native manner, then TIBCO Cloud Integration – Flogo® (PAYG) is designed for you.
