Today, Iron.io announced Project Thor, which is developing the world’s first hybrid job processing system. This is unlike anything we’ve done to date. Unlike previous IronWorker technology, Project Thor is architected to deliver the power of Iron.io to any server in the world in minutes.
With Project Thor, the Iron.io IronWorker Docker container is deployed on a company’s own servers, which then communicates with the Iron.io API. This brings the power of Iron.io’s event-driven computing service to the Enterprise in just a few easy steps. Project Thor seamlessly integrates with existing solutions for container deployment, such as OpenShift by Red Hat, Cloud Foundry, OpenStack and Kubernetes.
