The slow data path, if you will, is more aggregation of information, transformation, summarization of information that is dominantly targeted to be pathed to the back-end application, to the data center or the cloud. It could be historical aggregate information, like what are my trends over time, or it could be information that is semi-urgent, but not real-time or near-real-time urgent.
On the fast data path we have our business rules management system, which is an embedded rules engine, that allows you to process events over time. It can look over sliding time windows if certain things happen within a time window, if this happened before that or after that, are these two events correlated in some way. Based on this rapid evaluation, you can take action quickly.
On the slow data path, which actually may even feed into the fast data path a little bit, we have out A-MQ messaging layer, and our JBoss Fuse for transformation. A-MQ can provide protocol transformation, so if you have various devices talking over say MQTT, you can transform that to an A-MQP enterprise protocol for communication to the back end, and Fuse provides format translation, transformation on top of that. So if you need to standardize information coming from different devices into a common form so it’s easier process, aggregate with other information, that can all happen in the intelligent gateway.
