Background

Edge Traffic Ingress

Ingest data from large numbers of web, mobile, and IoT devices. With Netifi you can shrink that infrastructure by 90% leading to huge cost savings and increased reliability.

Supporting Many Clients and High Throughput Quickly Becomes Expensive With Scale-Out Architectures

 

Problem

Today's scale-out architectures quickly become cost prohibitive as you need to continually add more instances, more load balancers, and operational time to configure reliability workarounds like circuit breakers.

Solution

Netifi forms a virtual point-to-point network between all of your services with built-in backpressure for reliability. No need for deploying load balancers or configuring circuit breakers. 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.

Powered by RSocket

Netifi brings you massive performance gains and thus cost savings 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 the Future

Our CEO, Arsalan Farooq, talks RSocket and shows attendees how they can dramatically reduce their infrastructure by moving away from HTTP.
