Boomi has released AtomSphere Spring ‘10, an update to its flagship integration platform, Boomi AtomSphere. AtomSphere Spring ’10 features a cloud-based, real-time integration broker and now supports both loosely-coupled and point-to-point integration architectures. The product was initially launched in 2007.

The real-time integration functionality is enabled through the connect.boomi.com integration broker and is accomplished with no changes required to firewall security. Enterprises can now confidently extend their SOA to the cloud to integrate any combination of SaaS, cloud, and on-premise applications in a real-time, loosely coupled fashion. This enhancement supports increased cloud services adoption by large enterprises and addresses a major requirement of Boomi’s community as well as the IT industry at large by providing the missing link between SOA and cloud computing.

For those applications (either in the cloud or on-premise) that do not currently have a Web service, Boomi has included a new service with AtomSphere Spring ’10 called Web Service Publishing that allows Boomi customers to turn any integration process into a Web service that can be deployed on premise or into Boomi’s cloud. Web services deployed in Boomi’s cloud can be dynamically invoked (either directly or in conjunction with popular API management tools such as Mashery) by any cloud or on-premise application through connect.boomi.com. All Web services, no matter where deployed, are managed from one central location in AtomSphere to help extend and strengthen existing governance policies.

Additional new features in AtomSphere Spring ’10 include:

  • Support for both SOAP and raw HTTP
    Enhancements to improve resiliency and error rate reduction
  • Stronger process test and debug capabilities
  • Improved and simplified schedule management for batch processes
  • Improved visibility into status of long running/high volume processes
