Background

Bridging Domains

Easily communicate across VPCs, Cloud Providers, On-Prem, and Kubernetes. Netifi is the easiest way to unify communication across your architecture.

Communicating Between Components of a Distributed Architecture Can Be Difficult

 

Problem

Facilitating communication between the heterogenous deployment topologies of today's modern cloud-native applications is difficult, expensive, and time-consuming. Securing these heterogenous deployments often requires manipulating disjoint security configurations in multiple systems leading to outages and breaches.

Solution

Netifi forms a virtual point-to-point network between all of your services. No need for deploying load balancers or edge gateways. We do what TCP/IP does for the Internet for your microservices: provide lightning fast and secure communication between your microservices wherever they are deployed.

Netifi Is The Easiest Way to Communicate Between Your Application Components

No Code Changes

Requires no changes to your existing applications. Netifi's technology can use your existing service discovery mechanism out of the box.

Unified Security Model

Secure all of your services using the same technology and rules across all deployment environments.

Centralized Management

With Netifi you can view and manage all of your services through a single pane of glass no matter where they are running.

Deployment Flexibility

On-prem, in the cloud, using Kubernetes, it doesn't matter with Netifi. Netifi works across all deployment and runtime topologies.

Secure By Default

With Netifi services are not exposed by default. You decide which services you expose to consumers.

No Sidecars

Netifi requires only a single deployable. Deploy the Netifi Broker into your environment and your services will be automatically managed and secured by Netifi. No need for sidecar proxies for every application.

Powered by RSocket

Netifi can seamlessly bridge your environments because it is built on RSocket, an open source layer 5/6 networking protocol, purpose-built for communicating between networked devices and services.

RSocket was originally developed by our co-founders to solve the problem of communicating between massive numbers of microservices at Netflix. RSocket is now supported by member companies of the Reactive Foundation.

Made Possible with RSocket

  • 10x Better Performance
    Shrink your infrastructure by 90%

    RSocket provides 10x better performance and latency than existing HTTP and gRPC based microservice solutions.

    RSocket provides maximum throughput because it is a binary protocol and does not require serializing and deserializing human readable data formats (ie. json) between services. RSocket is completely reactive, dramatically reducing the number of requests needed to receive data in HTTP-pull based architectures today. RSocket consumers only receive data when there is data to process, no more need for pulling. We have seen RSocket users reduce their server instance count by 90% because of this.

  • Network Everything
    Web Browsers, Mobile Apps, IoT Devices? No Problem.

    Seamlessly communicate between microservices, web browsers, mobile applications, and IoT devices. RSocket makes all of this possible by building virtual point-to-point connections between devices and services; eliminating the need for managing IP addresses and opening ports.

  • Prevent Outages
    No Need for Circuit Breakers or Bulkheading

    RSocket uses application backpressure to prevent upstream producers from overwhelming downstream consumers. RSocket consumers tell upstream producers how much data they can handle at any given point in time preventing thundering herd failures. This backpressure removes the need for configuring and tuning circuit breakers that are required for other service mesh solutions.

  • Reactive Applications
    Create High-Performance Reactive Architectures

    Fully reactive systems are the new way to build high performance applications and reduce infrastructure footprint. RSocket is a fully reactive protocol that implements the Reactive Streams specification over the network. Prior to RSocket, Reactive Streams implementations only worked on box. RSocket takes all the advantages of Reactive Streams and allows you to use them over the network.

RSocket is Truly Cloud-Native

Our CEO, Arsalan Farooq, talks RSocket and the future of cloud-native application development and operations.
