Integration questions

Anonymous 4 years ago • updated by Gandalf 3 years ago 3
You guys have a wonderful product, simple, clean and inviting. We are starting up a new venture which requires a middle layer between two systems to be the "owner" of data. E.g. ecommerce website and backend order fulfillment software.

Our goal is to integrate this middle ware (ESB) to ecommerce software API/Flat Files, pull order data, store it in our own middleware database, then turn around and integrate with our backend 3rd party order fulfillment system via API or flat files (PULL or PUSH) to serve the order info and get the shipping updates along with inventory back.

My questions:
1. Is the above possible with Warewolf?
2. Can I host Warewolf in the cloud, if yes, what do you recommend for processing possibly 100 orders an hour to start small and then grow? Azure/AWS?
3. Can Warewolf connect to MySQL?
4. I am technical but I don't code, comfortable using databases but don't know enough to do right setup, is there help available from you'll to do so?

I have looked into Mule ESB, Talend and have done many point to point integrations in the past... including making my own ESB (with a dev team) but without any platform and more of a hard coded, non scalable platform.

Thank you for your time.

Thanks Bhavin.

To answer your questions:
1. Warewolf is very suited to what you want to do.
2. We have used Warewolf on Azure and AWS and its as simple as opening up the ports 3142, 3143 on their respective portals after installing. Use the one closest to your other applications for best performance, To determine the spec is difficult without knowing what the processing is doing. You shouldn't need more than a tiny machine to do the above unless you are analysing the data as well.
3. Warewolf can connect to MySQL, although that release is not public yet. It will be by the end of this week. If you are interested, we can give you a beta version of it now.
4. We will help you where we can, as will the community. If you need something more advanced, see our support packages.

I hope that helps.
Hi Bhavin
The latest release is out with MySQL support. You can get it from our our website. Let us know how you go!
