Smart Services Grid
Cordys: a Modern and open platform,
built on a secure, highly available and scalable architecture
Cordys Smart Services Grid forms the technology foundation of the Cordys Business Operations Platform and products built as add-ons to the platform.
All components in the Cordys platform both design-time and runtime are implemented as services and are hosted and managed on the Cordys Smart Services Grid. In that way, the Cordys Smart Services Grid is not a separate component but pervasive throughout the whole product. Cordys has used the Smart Services Grid as a bootstrap layer to built the whole platform. The Cordys Smart Services Grid enables real-time and seamless interoperability between all the layers in the platform as well as with external services and applications. For example, the UI framework is connected to the business process layer which on its turn may be connected to existing underlying IT systems by means of the Enterprise Service Bus, all using the Smart Services Grid as infrastructure.
Employment of universal industry standards allows the re-use of any existing middle-ware or best-of-breed applications, while ensuring a harmonious collaboration of all components.
High Performance and Scalability by Design
To achieve near linear scalability, the Cordys Smart Services Grid provides self-optimizing load management and fully distributed deployment of all services on a grid of commodity hardware blades. A robust high-availability framework facilitates non-stop execution of mission-critical services, business processes and applications.
Robust and Highly scalable platform
The Cordys platform architecture employs several key design principles to achieve superior horizontal and single-server scalability, such as a stateful object model and stateless connections as well as a peer to peer communication protocol without a single point of failure. The Smart Services Grid is multi-tenant aware and can be configured easily for high availability.
The Cordys platform also comes with built-in security provisions that deliver multiple levels of security, which is a crucial requirement when executing business processes across multiple system- and application boundaries.
Gateway to the Internet of Things
The Smart Services Grid is highly scalable and high performant but yet lightweight. It’s the ideal gateway to the Internet of Things, where any device of value or relevant level of criticality is connected to the internet and can produce and consume messages. Customers of Cordys use the Smart Services Grid to pick-up and process the relevant events which are coming in from connected devices for alerting, reporting, issue handling, workflow triggering etc. The Smart Services Grid can even be miniaturized to run on routers in the network and be connected to one or more processing hubs.
Cordys has a single integrated, secure and open standards based platform with a state of the art SOA architecture. Cordys’ architectural underpinnings enable the Cordys Business Operations Platform to be a fully-integrated BPM platform that helps organizations to achieve tangible business benefits due to a rich suite of Integration, BPM and Application Development components based on a technology foundation which covers high availability, reliability, scalability, and unhindered performance in applications out of the box.
