Distributions by Erlang Solutions


Distributions by Erlang Solutions

A distribution or “distro” is a self-contained downloadable package which provides all of the necessary Erlang tools to get a base system up and running rapidly. It is deliberately designed to be simple to configure by system maintainers and custom built for specific operating systems.

Relationship with the Open Messaging Platform (OMP)
The Open Messaging Platform (OMP) is a derivative of OTP (Open Telecom Platform), originally made available by Ericsson to build robust telecommunications software. It is available as a distribution for various operating systems and focuses on providing a base platform for building modern messaging systems (e.g. using XMPP). OMP is a clean base to use and takes advantage of the strong foundation provided by OTP, however in  leaner form.   

How does the infrastructure help with ejabberd
OMP is a common infrastructure which may be used as a base for creating scalable messaging platforms. It has been successfully deployed and used for ejabberd-based systems, which Erlang Solutions provides commercial support for.

OMP augmenting the OTP Distro
OMP augments the distro offering by being focused on a specific type of usage and addressing the needs to the user specifically.

User Benefits

  • OMP is a "foundation system" which a user can extend and manage. ESL is able to provide support for OMP and will build customised versions based on users requests.
  • OMP is highly customisable, which allows ESL to provide commercial support, and tailor it to customer requirements.
  • OMP gives the end users a working environment which can be setup in under 15 minutes.

Commercial Support for distros
Erlang Solutions offers a comprehensive range of support options, letting you choose the exact level of support you need for your suite of distros and Erlang/ OTP-based systems. With Erlang Solutions providing the support, you can significantly increase stability, flexibility and system performance, allowing you to focus on growing your business.
