What is Vortex?
Vortex saves time for developers and organizations by providing on demand observability, transaction control, replay, and debugging of web-based sites, applications, and services through HTTP/S for both Private and Public sites. Learn more here.
Upon signing up an instant domain is ready for your account.
Download the vortex shell to provide a conduit between your application and Vortex.
Access your site, application, or web service from anywhere. Visit your Vortex Dashboard to observe or replay traffic for debugging.
Deep packet inspection of HTTP/S data relieves developers of modifying source code, using libraries or installing of remote agents.
On Demand Inspection and Replay
Automatic and on-demand journalling of HTTP and HTTPS traffic. Use the Journal viewer to inspect web request and response data, replay to a developer machine, share with a team member, or transmit to another systems.
Empower users with a rules engine providing dynamic routing with multiple modes of operation.
Request/Response transactions are sent and received from the live server. A copy of the request and response is journaled.
When the Vortex Shell is active, live requests are replayed to a developer workstation. Responses are returned from the developer workstation after processing. When the shell is not active, it will route to the live site.
Route requests to the original site and forward a copy to the Vortex Shell for real-time replay. Responses are provided by the original site.
Selectively block traffic with rules. No response is returned for the web request.
Debug within 3 minutes upon first signup and under a minute thereafter.
Realtime and Historical Debug
Empower the developer by allowing their workstation to become a temporary member of another system (dev, staging, live, etc) so that transactions can be debugged within source code.
Productive within minutes
Vortex's purpose is to reduce development hours and devops by shrink-wrapping automatic journaling, replay capability, and cloud debugging without the need to modify source code, use a software library, or deploy remote agents.
It achieves this by addressing two common types of web based solutions: private sites and public sites.
Implement HTTP and HTTPS out of the box, providing the user with their own instant custom URL (e.g., myawesome.app.vtxhub.com) as a subdomain of Vortex, making an inaccessible site available on the Internet. Typical implementation time is under 3 minutes from sign up and less than 1 minute thereafter.
For websites that are deployed within an Intranet or cloud hosted on the Internet (e.g., AWAS, Azure, Google Cloud, Heroku, ...) Owned Domains provides observability, journaling, replay, and debugging of web-based applications through a Vortex Appliance (self hosted or cloud hosted). Modify the application DNS to point to the appliance and that's it! You can start reaping the benefts of Vortex in just a few clicks.
