SWIM.AI Introduces Open Source Swim Platform for Stateful, Real-Time, Distributed Applications

Swim enables developers to build applications that analyze, learn and
act on streaming data as it’s created, from the edge to the cloud

SAN JOSE, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–lt;a href=”https://twitter.com/hashtag/EdgeAnalytics?src=hash” target=”_blank”gt;#EdgeAnalyticslt;/agt;–SWIM.AI,
creators of the industry’s first application platform
for building stateful, real-time, distributed applications, today
announced that the Swim
platform
is now open source under the Apache 2.0 license, and freely
available to developers. Swim gives developers a single, integrated
software stack to build and run stateful, real-time, distributed
applications without requiring a database, message broker and
application server. Swim can run locally at the edge or in the cloud to
analyze, visualize, collaborate, and act on streaming data as it is
created.

“Organizations are overwhelmed by constant streams of new data, and
centralized ‘store then analyze’ architectures are poorly suited for
today’s complex edge environments,” said Krish Subramanian, founder and
principal analyst, Rishidot Research LLC. “Developers understand these
challenges and want to build applications that act on streaming data in
real-time. Swim allows them to do this.”

New Stateful Model for Building Real-Time Applications

Swim is a single integrated software stack that is efficient and able to
run anywhere, from the smallest compute devices to the largest clouds.
Traditionally, working with large volumes of edge or streaming data has
required developers to assemble a complex set of software including data
collectors, analytics, message brokers and databases. Swim integrates
these capabilities upfront, enabling developers to rapidly develop
applications that work with existing hardware and software without
depending on a database, message broker, application server or cloud
storage.

SWIM requires little training, and provides everything an application
developer needs to get started building stateful, real-time, distributed
applications. The three components are:

  • Swim platform and runtime – provides the foundation for
    building and running stateful, scalable, real-time applications
    without requiring a database, message broker, or app server
  • UI framework, SDKs and client – enables the building of new
    streaming visualizations and embedding streaming UI components into
    existing applications in days, not months
  • Streaming APIs – First ever streaming API integrates
    data streams and analytical insights with existing UIs or external
    applications

From REST to WARP: The World’s Only Streaming-First API

A key innovation of the SWIM platform is the WARP streaming protocol.
WARP powers Swim’s streaming APIs and was developed by SWIM.AI as a
multiplexed streaming upgrade to HTTP, to enable the creation of
bidirectional streaming links between distributed application services.
With WARP, developers can create meshes of application services which
continuously share streaming insights with each other at network
real-time.

“Swim was created to solve the fundamental challenges that developers
face when building real-time applications,” said Chris Sachs, founder
and chief architect of SWIM.AI. “Most apps involve complex integrations
of servers, message brokers and databases. These REST-based
architectures create bottlenecks that are quickly overwhelmed by high
data volumes. By leveraging WARP, Swim can efficiently stream updates
across the edge, network and cloud to ensure distributed applications
are always in-sync with the real world.”

Getting Started with SWIM

Swim is available now. To get started, developers can download Swim at developer.swim.ai.

The Swim community portal includes all of the documentation
and support resources developers need to start building streaming
applications today. In addition to the SWIM platform, the portal offers:
