Product ID: 5725-J90
Status: Available

Description IBM Product Life Cycle Additional Information


DataPower gateway appliances help simplify, govern, and optimize the delivery of services and applications by providing security, connectivity, data transformation, protocol bridging, and intelligent load distribution functions. By offering an innovative, pragmatic approach to security, integration, and intelligent application delivery in a purpose-built, easy-to-consume form-factor, DataPower gateway appliances can help leverage the value of existing infrastructure investments and help reduce the total cost of ownership for mobile, web, API, service-oriented architecture (SOA), and business-to-business (B2B) projects.

Firmware V7.2 provides increased cloud deployment flexibility and mobile security enhancements.

  • Amazon EC2 and Softlayer CCI support for increased deployment flexibility on public cloud environments

  • Mobile security enhancements for securing access to Representational State Transfer (REST) services that use JavaScript Object Notation (JSON) Web Encryption (JWE), JSON Web Signature (JWS) and JSON Web Token (JWT)

  • GatewayScript enhancements to easily transform between JSON and Extensible Markup Language (XML) payloads enabling easier

WebSphere DataPower gateway appliances are positioned to act as security and integration gateways for a full range of web, mobile, application programming interface (API), service-oriented architecture (SOA), business-to-business (B2B), and cloud workloads in a single, highly secure, highly consumable, DMZ-ready appliance.

Version 7.0 features and enhancements include the following:

  • Enhanced web, mobile and API gateway capabilities with WebSocket proxy support and improved security functionality

  • Introduction of cost-effective DataPower Virtual Edition for Developers and deployment support on VMware Type 2 hypervisors that allows developers to have a dedicated copy of DataPower appliance for development and unit testing on their workstations

  • GatewayScript, a JavaScript-based programming model that is optimized, secured and tuned for the gateway environment to enable secure and efficient processing of mobile, web, and API workloads

  • Easier integration with Sterling Multi-Enterprise Integration Gateway (MEIG) for offloading security functions

  • Improved network scalability and performance with support for link aggregation

  • Ability to run on Citrix XenServer based platforms to enable private cloud and SoftLayer bare-metal and dedicated server deployment

Program Number
  • IBM WebSphere DataPower Service Gateway XG45 Virtual Edition V7.2.0 (5725-J90)
  • IBM WebSphere DataPower Integration Appliance XI52 Virtual Edition V7.2.0 (5725-J91)

Firmware 7.2 delivers Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) support for Amazon EC2 and SoftLayer CCI (1) Secure Gateway Service for IBM Bluemix applications, robust mobile security capabilities, enhanced TLS security support, and several other key security and integration capabilities.:

  • Deploy IBM DataPower Gateways on Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2) and SoftLayer CCI, to provide enhanced cloud elasticity for DataPower Gateways in cloud environments.

  • Enhanced hybrid cloud integration using Secure Gateway service to securely connect between IBM Bluemix applications and on-premise services secured using DataPower GatewaysProvide enhanced message- level security for mobile, API, and web workloads by using JSON Web Encryption for message confidentiality, JSON Signature for message integrity, and JSON Web Token to assert security assertions for Single Sign On (SSO).

  • Easily integrate System of Records data sources with Systems of Engagements by using GatewayScript to transform between XML and JSON payloads.

  • Protect mission-critical applications from security exposures with enhanced TLS protocol support by using Elliptic Curve Cryptography (ECC), Server Name Indication (SNI), and Perfect Forward Secrecy (PFS).

  • Quickly build DataPower automation and deployment migration scripts for easier devops by using the REST-based management API.

  • Provide increased high availability for your environment with enhanced, load balancer group health checks to intelligently detect server availability.

  • Enhanced reliability of IMS transactions with support for IMS Commit mode 0. This provides flexible integration with data from System of Records.

  • Supports distributed caching with IBM WebSphere eXtreme Scale 8.6+ to provide increased response time and better application performance.
