In the next century, planet earth will don an electronic skin. It will use the Internet as a scaffold to support and transmit its sensations.
— NEIL GROSS, 1999

The Internet of Things (IoT) has arrived. A rising wave of smart, connected devices and sensors can now monitor everything from a baby’s heart rate to the temperature of a shipping container as it crosses the ocean. The real-time connectedness of virtually everything, everywhere presents tremendous opportunities… and tremendous challenges.

Beyond Web Scale

For the last decade developers have learned to build “web scale” applications. These web applications focused on supporting thousands of synchronous, request-response sessions with user’s browsers and phones. A modern web application might process a few thousand transactions each day and rely heavily on caching to support thousands of users across the globe.

This won’t work anymore.

IoT applications are fundamentally event-driven and they must process hundreds of thousands events generated in real-time each minute. An IoT system must process this fast-moving event stream and construct a sophisticated real-time model of the world that an enterprise can leverage to become faster and smarter. This kind of transactional event processing at scale requires a radically new architecture totally unlike web-scale applications. 

Coming Soon… Aether,  A Solution for IoT

Neeve Research is building Aether, a solution for building event-driven applications needed to support the Internet of Things. Aether applications are extremely easy to build and can scale to millions of events each second.

Aether is built on the X Platform™, a revolutionary new in-memory distributed computing platform. An Aether application runs on the X Platform™ so it immediately becomes highly performant and highly available. Aether gateways connect the application to the world to enable it to receive and send data to any device anywhere in the world. Aether containers are the final piece for needed for quickly deploying scalable applications to the cloud. Learn more about the X Platform.
