Choria Broker is based on the excellent NATS Server technology, this technology has been instrumental to moving Choria from its MCollective roots where 1 000 managed nodes required a big hardware investment to where we are today with a $40 Linode being enough to manage 50 000 nodes in an easy to manage and run single binary package.
NATS Server recently introduced a new capability called NATS JetStream and today I want to show a bit where we are with making that available to Choria users as Choria Streams.
JetStream is a Streaming Server that uses a WAL to create an append-only log of messages. Messages get stored to disk or memory, can be replicated within a cluster and can later be consumed by different consumers using any of the 40+ programming languages supported by NATS.
By embedding this technology in the Choria Broker we enable a number of use cases around our Metadata processing features, Autonomous Agents, CloudEvents as produced by Choria Scout, and we also introduce 2 major new features: Choria Key-Value Store and Choria Concurrency Governor.
This will all be available in our upcoming
