How to future-proof managed file transfer (MFT) in MuleSoft-based integrations

Think about what Netflix did and what Blockbuster didn’t. Similar to Blockbuster, Netflix started with physical distribution, mailing DVDs to their subscribers. Then, they took a leap of faith —moving into streaming and diverting focus from their primary business. It worked out well for them. Companies that do not innovate become obsolete and the costs of just “keeping the lights on” may have devastating effects on the business. Future-proofing IT investments is critical to keep the business agile so it can adapt to market changes.

MuleSoft provides two types of load balancers, shared load balancer, and dedicated load balancer to distribute API traffic deployed on the MuleSoft cloud workers. Shared load balancer is multi-tenant and shared with other customers. Dedicated load balancers enable you to deploy and configure one or more custom load balancers within your Anypoint Virtual Private Cloud (Anypoint VPC). The aim of load balancing is to optimize the use of API instances available, maximize throughput,

How to unlock the full potential of iPaaS with API-led connectivity

Integration is critical for all businesses, and the right Integration Platform-as-a-Service (iPaaS) is a key piece for any organization looking to accelerate digital efforts. However, truly unlocking your data and systems is about more than just connecting systems and applications. To build an agile and future-proof business, you need an integration strategy and partner that recognizes that iPaaS alone isn’t the end solution.

Integration is critical for all businesses, and selecting the right Integration Platform-as-a-Service (iPaaS) is important for any organization looking to accelerate digital efforts. As you evaluate different iPaaS vendors, it’s important to understand the evolution of iPaaS and the differences between a modern and tactical solution. 

3 characteristics of a modern iPaaS

Integration is critical for all businesses, and selecting the right Integration Platform-as-a-Service (iPaaS) early on is important for any organization looking to accelerate digital efforts. Many organizations question whether their needs are similar to large enterprises with complex backends or if a few simple point-to-point integrations would suffice. However, this is exactly the moment you need to build the foundation for success.

Unleash the power of your application network and Serverless Computing to transform, innovate, and stay ahead of your competition.

In the previous post, we covered how a serverless-first mantra offers a mindset focused on “don’t lift and shift — transform” and how serverless and SaaS are growing into the de-facto standard for delivering business software. Further, I highlight why we should focus on low Total Cost of Evolution (TCE) rather than only low Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) for our solutions.

What does scalability in cloud computing mean?

Since COVID-19 started, my wife and I switched to working remotely, with days filled with video conferences. The only way for my kid to connect to school and close friends is via the internet. At the end of the day, we are connected to the internet for news and entertainment as well. This is likely the same dynamic for others now as well. After some research, I found that my internet provider saw a surge in upstream (upload) traffic by 32% and downstream (download) traffic by 18%.

Migrating on-premises MuleSoft applications to CloudHub

Is your organization undergoing a digital transformation? Is your IT department under pressure to move all the applications and infrastructure to the cloud? An increasing number of organizations today are looking to iPaaS solutions that provide integrated software and hardware stacks for quick deployments, management, and a higher ROI. SaaS products like Salesforce, Workday, and ServiceNow have the system of records in the cloud which is another reason companies are moving to the cloud.

Why MuleSoft Anypoint Platform and serverless computing (AWS Lambda) are better together

Unleash the power of your application network and Serverless Computing to transform, innovate and stay ahead of your competition.

The transition to SaaS application adoption and cloud computing continues to accelerate for both “old” server based and “new” serverless technologies. We are starting to see that all organizations are moving toward a “serverless first” approach, similar to past movements such as “cloud first” and “cloud native.”

CloudHub is the Anypoint Platform which provides a fully-managed, multi-tenanted, globally available, secure and highly available cloud platform for integration and APIs as a service (iPaaS).It is managed via the Runtime Manager console.

We can deploy our applications to CloudHub in various ways such as CloudHub APICloudHub Command Line Interface,Maven pom, from Anypoint Studio or directly from CloudHub interface with a Mule deployable zip file via Runtime Management Console.
