Flux Overview

Flux schedules batch jobs and orchestrates file transfers with a unique architecture that integrates workflow, distributed processing, managed file transfer, monitoring, job scheduling, and error handling.

Flux excels in satisfying circumstances where batch processing jobs:

  • Need to run unattended to reduce processing time and expense, increase reliability, and meet service level agreements.
  • Need to execute in a secure and reliable manner among different platforms and systems.
  • Need to integrate data through processes that span shell scripts, command lines, databases, web services, mail, and files. 
  • Need to coordinate between many different functions running on a variety of platforms and machines.
  • Need to execute processes that are time-driven, process-driven, or manually triggered, and may have many workflow dependencies.
  • Need to run with the same programs and same (or varying) parameters, ensuring data integrity and consistency of processing.
  • Require flexible processing that includes scripting, command lines, REST, and Java.

Since 2000, Flux has proven itself as the backbone of many mission-critical applications across various industry sectors worldwide. 100% Java, Flux delivers sophisticated time and event scheduling, workflow design and execution, managed file transfer, enterprise integration via SOA and databases, and integrated security.

  • Flux appeals to operations staff with its ease of use and script-free automation of complex tasks.
    • Drag-and-drop visual workflow creation defines workflows without scripting and allows staff to visualize workflow logic, without having to resort to complex and non-intuitive scripting.
    • Easily monitor workflow status to optimize workload performance and quickly resolve failures, improving communication to IT staff and keeping efficiency at the highest level possible.
  • Flux appeals to developers with its rich customizable features and light-weight footprint, making Flux ideal for embedding in larger applications.
    • Flux has been the basis for the creation of countless new business applications.
    • Web Services (REST and SOAP) integration simplifies integration in an SOA environment.
  • Flux's security mechanisms are enforced at a dashboard level, the Java APIs, the REST APIs, and the command line interface.
