The over-all move towards a consumer-centric economy is provoking a digital reinvention as IT leaders and business at organizations deliver innovative services and application programming interfaces (APIs). During this reinvention, infrastructure and network topology must be robust and ready for change, and present workloads must remain secure and not impacted adversely.
The advent and explosion of Web services and Extensible Markup Language (XML) has seen a surge in the middleware infrastructure for support. An important component in this middleware architecture is the enterprise service bus (ESB). It is a collection of runtime components that offers service intermediation such as routing, management, security, and other functions.
While XML and SOAP enable a rich application-aware communication, their development in this space has been riddled by three key challenges:
DataPower SOA appliances address these challenges with the creation of specialized consumable SOA appliances that redefine the boundaries of middleware.
It provides potent capabilities for a wide range of enterprise needs that includes:
The flexibility of the device offers great benefits at a reduced cost of time and effort because of the configuration-driven (rather than code-driven) method of implementation offered. This kind of a flexible framework lets an enterprise deploy a device in scenarios that require interoperability with a wide range of enterprise assets, such as:
Simplify, accelerate, and enhance the security capabilities of your XML and Web services deployments, and extend the capabilities of your service oriented architecture (SOA) infrastructure with IBM WebSphere DataPower SOA Appliances.
Purpose-built hardware for low-latency, network-based messaging and data feed processing
The DataPower XC10 appliance can offer:
DataPower gateway appliances are designed to act as security and integration gateways for a complete range of mobile, web, API, SOA, business-to-business (B2B), and cloud workloads in a single, secure, highly consumable, DMZ-ready appliance.
