The latest release of Streamdata.io (SDIO) is now called Distribute™, our containerized publish & subscribe solution for delivering real-time streams of topical dat
a. Streamdata.io Distribute will turn any existing HTTP API into a server-sent-event stream, allowing you to proxy existing APIs, or push updates via a webhook POST while organizing your streams into a variety of topics. Providing essential event-driven infrastructure that works alongside existing HTTP web APIs to distribute data where it is needed, as it is changing, wherever subscribers exist.
OK, so why do you need Streamdata.io Distribute? This release is all about delivering event-driven infrastructure within your existing containerized stack. Providing a suite of Docker containers you can deploy within your own stack, and orchestrate the creation, publishing, and distribution of data via real-time topical data streams. Allowing stewards of rapidly changing data like financial, market, account, news, social, messaging, and other formats to quickly augment their existing APIs with streaming APIs--without having to do all the heavy lifting when it comes to designing and scaling this infrastructure.
We do the hard work, you just deploy the container, define your topics, and begin publishing to each channel, providing what your subscribers will want.
Streamdata.io Distribute leverages server-sent events (SSE), a standard for delivering one way streams via HTTP. It makes for the perfect solution to augment existing web APIs with event-driven infrastructure while keeping things within the HTTP realm. WebSockets and Kafka, while effective industrial grade solutions for moving data around in real-time are often overkill, and aren't suitable for last mile data delivery to a wide audience, for use in web, mobile, and other types of applications. This is where Streamdata.io Distribute excels, seamlessly making data available in real-time using HTTP, a protocol that a wide audience understands, and is easily able to put to work in their applications. Making Streamdata.io Distribute an essential building block for the ever-expanding API universe, where developers get how to provide and consume data using low-cost web infrastructure.
