NATS, An Open Source Connection Technology Now Includes HarperDB 4.0


According to the startup, consumers are given additional power by the distinctive architecture to take advantage of fleeting possibilities.

The NATS open source connective technology for adaptive edge and distributed systems, according to HarperDB Inc., will be integrated with its Global Application Platform to expand its possibilities.

HarperDB, one of a new breed of hybrid transactional/analytical processing databases, was introduced a number of years ago and combines NoSQL for unstructured data and standard SQL for structured data. One of its main benefits is the ability to perform extensive analytics on “in flight” transaction data in real time. This is a quick database created for globally distributed applications.

With the introduction of HarperDB 4.0, the Go-programmed open-source messaging system NATS and the database are now even more interconnected. Applications can securely communicate with one another across any mix of cloud platforms, on-premises servers, edge, online, and mobile devices with NATS, a connective technology designed for a hyperconnected society.

NATS, a collection of tightly integrated open source technologies that can also be used alone, can be used to supplement or take the place of conventional messaging. It is utilised by thousands of multinational corporations and covers a variety of use cases, including edge computing, mobile computing, the “internet of things,” and microservices.

The NATS Server, which supports more than 40 languages and frameworks including Go, Java, JavaScript/TypeScript, Python, Ruby, Rust, C, C#, and NGINX, serves as a sort of central nervous system for creating distributed applications. Additionally, NATS provides flexible data retrieval with JetStream, highly resilient data storage, and real-time data streaming.

According to the database business, NATS now offers messaging, streaming, and persistence at any scale for every environment with low latency and high throughput thanks to HarperDB 4.0. It claimed that there were no longer any restrictions on data distribution, allowing users to cluster millions of nodes all over the world to build the ultimate global data mesh.

The main benefit of NATS integration is that HarperDB 4.0 can now automatically cluster an infinite number of instances over a seal-healing NATS mesh network. With its database able to achieve round-trip latency as low as 2 milliseconds and global replication in just 100 milliseconds, the company believes this ushers in a new paradigm for the creation of distributed applications. As a result, it becomes the perfect foundation for irregular networks, systems with very large volume, and systems that need dynamic data replication.
