Frequently Asked Questions

What is IPS?

IPS (AdroitLogic Integration Platform) is a stack designed to easily and conveniently deploy, manage and monitor AdroitLogic’s high-performance UltraESB instances on a public or private cloud environment. IPS facilitates seamless management of any number of ESB instances on hundreds of physical/ virtual hosts with guarantees such as hassle-free automatic configuration updates, self-healing and detailed monitoring.

What is IPS made of?

Integration Platform relies on Docker as the containerization medium, and is built using, and operates on top of, the Kubernetes container orchestration framework. We also currently support deployments on OpenShift Container Platform. Preliminary deployment support is also available for the AWS-offered EC2 Container Service (ECS).

How will IPS help my business?

Together with AdrotLogic UltraStudio, the intuitive graphical integration solutions developer, IPS provides a complete end-to-end toolchain where you can design, develop, test, deploy and fully manage your business integration workflow.

How can I try out IPS to see if it suits me?

Currently we offer a free, 30-day evaluation version of IPS as a standalone, single-instance runtime on top of VirtualBox. You can download and run it from here, and try out most of the features of IPS by following our documentation guides and ready-made samples.

How can I develop my own solution for deployment in IPS?

UltraStudio is the default plugin for developing integration solutions on top of the Project-X framework. Any integration project developed using UltraStudio can be deployed in IPS, either directly from the IDE or by generating and uploading the deployment artifact (XPR file). For more information on developing such integration solutions, please refer to the UltraStudio documentation.

I receive an error while running IPS / IPS does not behave as it is supposed to be (or as described in the documentation).

Please refer to our troubleshooting guide to check whether the particular issue you are facing is already enlisted there. Generally the guide would be capable of providing a suitable solution; if not, please contact us with details of your problem (what you did, what happened and what you expected) so that we can get back to you.

I already tried out IPS, and I like it. How can I proceed to use it for my business/enterprise?

Depending on your specific concern or requirement we may even be able to provide you with a pre-release version before the actual enhancement is publicly released.
