Vortex Link is the ubiquitous and universally accessible ‘Internet Service’ for sharing data between Vortex-enabled applications. Vortex Link can be deployed on public or private clouds, it is elastic, fault-tolerant and highly scalable. Vortex Link can be deployed in any subsystem (typically a LAN) to allow all DDS applications to share data with other DDS applications in the cloud or in any other subsystem.
Thanks to its flexible architecture, Vortex Link supports several different deployment and connectivity scenarios, including Device to Cloud and System to Cloud, as well as system federation. Additionally, Vortex Link supports multiple protocol transports, such as TCP/IP and UDP/IP (unicast and multicast) and can even mediate between transports. Security is supported in Vortex Link, taking advantage of internet standards such as TLS.
