Financial Services Industry Advances High Performance Messaging With OpenMAMA Project

One-Year Project Milestones Include New Contributions From Red Hat and Tick 42, a Commercial Offering From Exegy, a New Bridge Under Development by IBM, Supported Enterprise Edition From NYSE Technologies

SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 11/28/12 -- The Linux Foundation, the nonprofit organization dedicated to accelerating the growth of Linux, today announced a variety of one-year project milestones for OpenMAMA that include important new code contributions, a fully open source software stack and the first commercial offering to result from the project.

OpenMAMA is a high performance, open source Middleware Agnostic Messaging API (MAMA) that provides a common, consistent interface for passing data between high volume, low latency messaging applications. Demand for high performance messaging in multiple industries has resulted in a variety of products from a wide range of providers, often leading to complex integration scenarios. The OpenMAMA project is a collaborative effort to develop a common, ultra-high-performance middleware API that connects a variety of message passing applications, reducing integration challenges and speeding time to deployment.

OpenMAMA was announced one year ago and is a part of Linux Foundation Labs, which includes other open source software and collaborative development projects that advance Linux or the Linux ecosystem. Participants in OpenMAMA include Bank of America Merrill Lynch, IBM, EMC, Exegy, Fixnetix, J.P. Morgan and NYSE Technologies, among others.

One-year project milestones for OpenMAMA include:

* Eight software bridges have been developed for the project from a variety of organizations. Bridges enable external applications to pass data through OpenMAMA, eliminating complexity and work when integrating multiple data sources with multiple users and decreasing the difficulty of supporting custom and complex environments. Bridges and contributors include:

  • AMQP implementation of Qpid, written and contributed by Red Hat
  • Avis, written and contributed by NYSE Technologies
  • Bloomberg Open API, written, supported and contributed by Tick 42
  • Data Fabric Multi Verb, written and supported by NYSE Technologies
  • Exegy, written and supported by Exegy
  • LBM, written and supported by NYSE Technologies
  • Rai, written and supported by Rai
  • WebSphere Front Office, under development by IBM

* The OpenMAMA software stack is now completely open source, including a specific API for market data called OpenMAMDA and language support for C, C++, Java, and .Net. This completes the open sourcing process begun by project participants a year ago. From this point forward, all enhancements to the OpenMAMA codebase will come from the open source project, using proven open source development methods.

*The availability of OpenMAMA Enterprise Edition, a commercially supported and certified distribution of OpenMAMA from NYSE Technologies. This new offering is available from NYSE Technologies today as part of its Open Platform. For more information, please visit: http://nysetechnologies.nyx.com/data-technology

"The OpenMAMA project represents how collaborative development can advance technology innovation for an entire industry," said Jim Zemlin, executive director at The Linux Foundation. "In just one year, the project contributors have open sourced and expanded upon a project reduces complexity and cost for financial services companies. OpenMAMA was built for the financial services industry, but the problems it solves are also very applicable to other industries. There's already been interest from companies outside the finance industry, and we look forward to more."

"Red Hat is excited to contribute to The Linux Foundation's OpenMAMA project, which has helped push Apache Qpid's Proton initiative to a working AMQP 1.0 implementation that can be embedded in other applications wishing to support the AMQP protocol," said Brian Stevens, CTO at Red Hat. "AMQP provides an open industry standard protocol for business messaging, allowing for a new type of application development that provides automatic interoperability with other applications at the wire level in both traditional MOM and emerging architectures. We look forward to industry adoption of the OpenMAMA project and anticipate that users of the OpenMAMA AMQP combination will see great cost benefits, as well as the technical benefits provided by AMQP's architecture and design."
