Mule ESB Review

Lightweight and everything runs in Java, but I have had issues with instability

What is our primary use case?

Mule ESB acts as an intermediary that assists with integration between multiple layers.

What is most valuable?

Mule ESB is quite lightweight.

Everything runs in Java, which is a useful feature.

What needs improvement?

There are some issues with both stability and scalability.

I have experienced some issues with clustering.

For how long have I used the solution?

We have been using Mule ESB for probably three years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

The stability of this product can be improved.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

I have had a couple of issues with scalability. Our use case has traffic that depends a lot on the SDK, so there are a lot of users.

How are customer service and technical support?

The LAN team has been in contact with technical support.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

Prior to Mule ESB, we were using an IBM solution that was pretty good. Mule ESB is cheaper but I would choose the IBM product instead.

How was the initial setup?

The installation and setup had been completed before I joined the company.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

This product is cheaper than some offered by other vendors, although there is a problem because you have to pay for some third-party adapters.

What other advice do I have?

I would rate this solution a six out of ten.

Which deployment model are you using for this solution?
