Peer-to-Peer Enterprise Service Bus (ESB) Architecture

The first wave of integrating storage, compute and networking hardware helped businesses move from client/server to internet-based peer-to-peer networks. A second wave of integrating applications on top of the hardware infrastructure promises to deliver unprecedented economies of scale. In a simple three-tier enterprise IT model, applications (top-layer) need to be integrated seamlessly with the hardware infrastructure (foundation) to generate the best operational efficiencies. Messaging oriented middleware (middle-layer) is at the heart of enabling such a frictionless integration between a business' core assets: its applications and data residing in the infrastructure. However, integrating multi-vendor applications with diverse infrastructure and legacy applications is a daunting task. The distributed architecture of the modern Enterprise Service Bus provides ease of use and real-time responses from integrated services as discussed in this document.
