Solace is a middleware company based in Kanata, Ontario, Canada, that manufactures and sells message-oriented middleware appliances and software. Messaging middleware appliances are rack-mountable network devices that implement messaging functionality in purpose-built hardware. The company claims that implementing these functions in hardware enables higher throughput and lower, more consistent latency than software alternatives.

Solace has offices in New York City, Chicago, Redwood City, California, Atlanta, Toronto, London, Zurich, Munich, Tokyo, Hong Kong, Singapore and Sydney.

The company's major competitors are Informatica, Tervela, TIBCO Software, and IBM (with their WebSphere MQ Low Latency Messaging product).

Solace’s primary markets are energy, financial services, gaming, government, internet services, manufacturing, telecommunications, transportation and logistics. Customers include Barclays, Bet365, Crédit Agricole, the U.S. DHS, DZ Bank, Harris Corporation, Korea Exchange (KRX), Legal & General, London Stock Exchange Group, Menards, Mercuria Energy, Myspace, RBC Capital Markets, Standard Chartered Bank, TMX, Triton Digital and Unibet.


Solace Virtual Message Router software provides message routing and persistence functionality. The VMR features a multi-threaded, parallel pipelined architecture, optimized for modern multi-core processor architectures so it can scale in proportion to the number of processor cores.

Solace Message Router Appliances are hardware appliances that run the company's SolOS messaging platform as firmware.
