Technology Solutions – formerly a division of Avnet, now part of Tech Data, transforms technology into business solutions for partners and customers around the world.
Technology Solutions has a strong team and focus around middleware automation and have developed a software product called Talos. With Talos, customers are able to discover and import configurations from a variety of middleware including: WebSphere Application Server, WebSphere Liberty, WebSphere Commerce, WebSphere Portal, MQ, IIB, BPM, DataPower, Tomcat, JBoss, F5 Big IP and others. Once imported, customers can automatically clone an instance (both on-premise or in the cloud) or create tokenised templates which can be created and matched to various instances in the software development cycle. These templates are then uploaded automatically into an orchestration engine (like Jenkins or UCD) to become a part of a deployment process to middleware, saving the user from having to write bespoke spaghetti scripts. Talos normalises the way you work with ALL your middleware, allowing you to work with and deploy configuration in a consistent and easy way, via a web based GUI. Talos can also help you to quickly migrate your middleware to newer versions, the cloud, or to a microservices architecture leveraging Docker containers.
