ESB in microservices era


We live in a great era for the information technology.

A lot of powerful tools allow us to build, deploy and scale, fast and easily, software and services or infrastructures: we can setup a cluster in few minutes (using an IaaS), through a SaaS configure our backend while technologies like real-time scaling allow Ops teams to sleep peacefully.

 In this scenario micro-services architecture is spreading wide, greatly responding to the dynamism and cheapness our era requires.We could be tempted to think we don’t need ESB anymore, maybe replacing it using reactive interaction pattern in our services.

Actually until the Enterprise Integration challenges will survive we still need an ESB, and today these challenges aren’t disappearing, they are just evolving (we can see it when integrating heterogeneous protocols in an IoT context or applying Machine Learning technologies to legacy data mining systems).



The best we can do is to use a smarter approach applying the enterprise application pattern while maintaining the high reliability standard reached by traditional systems.


Which are the characteristic we must look for in an advanced ESB?


  • Fastness: in all lifecycle phases, to provide quickly responses to the high changeable business demands of our days
  • Cheaply: suitable for multiple environments, as on cloud as on commodity hardware, reducing cost for hardware and software licences
  • Smart: using modular and polymorphic structure to deal easily with incoming requirements


Many complex and time-consuming problems will be outdone:


  • Legacy systems compliance, allowing value maximization of our assets
  • Smart endpoints, to enhance our microservices architecture
  • Enterprise grade, using technologies ever on top of reliability performance


GreenVulcano ESB v4 - The ESB Evolved

All these concepts have inspired GreenVulcano Technologies to project an evolution of our ESB, natively future-proof-developed and now ready to accept all the challenges that market is going to raise in the next years.


An highly evolving world requires a new kind of technological solutions to face the increasingly difficult challenges raised by global competition.

IoT, an interesting journey

In the first post related to the IoT platform we talked about some introductory aspects: The importance of using an IoT platform for disaster prediction, showing a real project for monitoring the structure of bridges and tunnels (NTSG partner) The meaning of IoT data storm (how much data are we talking about) That importance of […]

The Future of Fleet Management

Introduction The connected vehicle field is a microcosm of the IoT.  By using the potential of smart devices and of IoT connectivity, a connected vehicle not only can determine things such speed, location and temperature, but it also may interact with surrounding roads, buildings and other vehicles to provide near real-time information, improve safety and […]

IoT: what to expect in the future

When dealing with the world of IoT, one might think of a nebulous quantity of notions and innovations, which only share the idea of connectivity, originality and more broadly a connection with the Internet.  This is not entirely wrong: in its strictest meaning, we can say that the Internet of Things “consists of any device […]
