Etere ETX 64-Bit with Microservices Architecture

Etere ETX 64-Bit with Microservices Architecture

11 February 2021

Etere adds ETX to its expanding list of 64 bits applications based on Microservices. The revolutionary software architecture combines the best of technology for a more powerful performance and best stability.

Etere brings the best of technology to you with Etere ETX's latest move to the revolutionary Microservices architecture which enables easier deployments, maintenance and testing across all of its systems development life cycle. The new software design features a series of benefits including speedy deployments, easy maintenance, organisation and modifications to software applications. This results in an enhanced performance and a faster delivery to market for users like you. This is a free upgrade for all users on a support contract. Besides Etere ETX and Etere ETX-M Multiviewer, Microservices will be gradually rolled-out to other Etere Ecosystem modules.

Microservices is a software architecture that structures the application as a collection of services. Unlike traditional monolithic systems where an application shares a common stack with a large, relational database supporting the entire application, Microservices enable individual deployments and scaling of services associated with each software application. As a result, developers have greater flexibility with the testing and deployment of changes to the software. This allows very fast deployment of new features as well as very reliable deliveries of large and complex applications. Furthermore, ETX is now supported on 64-bit operating systems. A 64-bit system can access up to 264 memory RAM, resulting in a faster performance. Additionally, with a 64-bit system, users can better manage multi-tasking between applications.

Benefits of Microservices Architecture in Etere
■ Codes in Microservices can be updated easily
■ More flexibility with the testing and deployment of changes to the software
■ Teams can use different stacks for different components
■ Better fault isolation, larger applications are unaffected by a single point of failure
■ Easy to understand and easy to scale as the services are separate
■ Smaller and faster deployments, with smaller codebases and scope, updates can be deployed more quickly

Etere Ecosystem Integration
Etere ETX is a part of the Etere Ecosystem and it is fully integrative with other modules in the system, including Etere SNMP console, an application that is designed to facilitate system monitoring of all modules, devices and applications. Etere SNMP provides real-time updates to optimise processes, infrastructure performance and devices from a single screen. It is also able to receive SNMP messages sent by other non-Etere applications and devices such as network switches, routers and firewalls. Not only that, configurable alerts notifies users of any potential errors in the system and enables a fast rectification.

Picture-in-Picture (PIP) Capabilities with ETX
Deliver rich content with different media elements including the superimposing of graphics, live video streams and feeds. With Etere ETX's Picture-in-Picture capabilities, users can insert multiple overlays of live graphics and videos over a streaming video. This includes the superimposing of layers on top of each other with customisable layouts. When a video is in PIP mode, it will remain within view while at the same time allowing the audience to consume other content simultaneously to deliver a more engaging viewing experience.

Add Titles, Text and Graphics as required Over a Streaming Video
