As part of the wider SOA trend, the Enterprise Service Bus (ESB) was a big thing a decade ago, but many users found out that they are complex to manage and therefore reduce agility. Currently, the market seems to favor simpler messaging solutions. They brought a new disadvantage: setting up the routing patterns required for typical microservices systems becomes a complex task. AxonHub, AxonIQ’s latest product, sits in the sweet spot between those two extremes, avoiding the disadvantages of both.
AxonHub delivers the intelligence to route events and other messages correctly and efficiently, in complex microservices landscapes. Together with the open source Axon Framework, and the scalable event storage solution AxonDB, it forms a compelling platform to build critical business applications, that can easily scale with business demands.
