Description:

WebSphere Application Server, with its traditional and Liberty runtimes, offers industry-leading, production-ready, standards-based Java EE 7 compliant architectures that support the API Economy and underpin business transformation. Additional features and enhancements to WebSphere Application Server offer an infrastructure that is well-suited for enterprise IT, upon which businesses can deliver composable applications. This allows secure, flexible, and efficient access to internal or external software components and services. Other enhancements provide ease-of-integrating WebSphere runtimes in the DevOps workflows for continuous integration and continuous delivery. IBM Cloud Services and Docker container support for seamless deployment to hybrid topologies and an ever growing tool chain of eco-system products further accelerate the pace of development and deployment.

  • Java EE 7 Web Profile and Full Platform certification of WebSphere Application Server traditional brings the traditional runtime to the same Java EE level as the Liberty runtime. This supports deployment of any Java EE 7 based application that uses the latest industry standards for on-premises or in the cloud. It enables you to easily exploit HTML 5 to:

    • Improve application responsiveness.

    • Increase developer productivity.

    • Help to meet the most demanding enterprise requirements .

  • Java Platform, Standard Edition 8 (Java SE 8) support for WebSphere Application Server V9.0 traditional and WebSphere Liberty deliver enhanced developer productivity and significant application performance improvements.

  • Docker container and Docker Data Center support accelerate delivery of modern applications with easier integration of WebSphere Application Server into your DevOps tools chain. Use of WebSphere Application Server with Docker Data Center enables seamless portability to deliver applications from development to test to production across a hybrid landscape, and supports the management of WebSphere Application Server Docker containers as part of a broader Docker-centric ecosystem.

  • Updated Docker images with the latest WebSphere Application Server Liberty binaries accelerate software deployment in hosts containing Docker engines.

  • WebSphere Application Server on Bluemix - Single Tenant offering provides deployment flexibility to deploy apps on isolated singe- tenant hardware, with an optional dedicated backend database connection to the client's data center. This option is also available for WebSphere Application Server V8.5.5.

  • A single management interface for managing and administering WebSphere Application Server Liberty's Java and StrongLoop's node.js applications that are deployed across bare-metal, Virtual Machines (VMs), and Docker environments in on-premises, cloud, or hybrid topologies.

  • Enhanced WebSphere eXtreme Scale provides an easy-to-configure, easy-to-deploy, distributed caching solution where speed and performance are the main drivers of business success.

  • Easy-to-deploy WebSphere Liberty applications to OpenShift and Pivotal Cloud Foundry that run in SoftLayer, Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure, and IBM Bluemix, in addition to on-premises environments and apply sub-capacity charging through suitable configurations.

  • Enhanced portability option for VMware customers to take better advantage of the cloud's speed and economics by enabling them to easily extend their existing workloads, as they are, from their on- premises software-defined data center (SDDC) to the cloud. The solution takes advantage of jointly designed architecture by VMware and IBM to automatically provision pre-configured VMware SDDC environments, which consist of VMware vSphere, NSX, and Virtual SAN on the IBM Cloud. The VMware SDDC environment allows customers to deploy workloads into this hybrid cloud environment without modification because of common security and networking models that are based on VMware.

IBM WebSphere Application Server family of products offers multiple configuration options and support for multiple business models and deployment platforms. It also supports a wide range of scenarios, from projects with no upfront budget, to simple administration of a single server environment, to a clustered, highly available, high- volume environment with Intelligent Management services.

The WebSphere Application Server Family Edition (5725-Y70) brings together the following key WebSphere Application Server products that are bundled under a common license entitlement.

  • WebSphere Application Server Network Deployment, which includes the Network Deployment editions of both the full profile and Liberty profile application servers

  • WebSphere Application Server, which includes the single server editions of both the full profile and Liberty profile application servers

  • WebSphere Application Server Liberty Core

WebSphere Application Server Family Edition gives you the flexibility to deploy the application server edition that is specific to your business needs. It also allows you to easily adjust the mix of products deployed from the bundle as the needs of your business change.

The charge metric for the Family Edition bundle is Processor Value Unit (PVU). However, because the value provided by each product in this bundle is different, there are different relationships between a Family Edition PVU, and a PVU of each bundled product.

  • One PVU of WebSphere Application Server Family Edition provides entitlement for one PVU of WebSphere Application Server Network Deployment. A purchase of 100 PVUs of Family Edition provides entitlement to deploy 100 PVUs of WebSphere Application Server Network Deployment.

  • One PVU of WebSphere Application Server Family Edition provides entitlement for four PVUs of WebSphere Application Server. A purchase of 100 PVUs of Family Edition provides entitlement to deploy 400 PVUs of WebSphere Application Server.

  • One PVU of WebSphere Application Server Family Edition provides entitlement for eight PVUs of WebSphere Application Server Liberty Core. A purchase of 100 PVUs of Family Edition provides entitlement to deploy 800 PVUs of WebSphere Application Server Liberty Core.

WebSphere Application Server Family Edition PVU entitlements also provide for a mix of deployed products in this bundle. For example, a purchase of 300 PVUs of Family Edition provides entitlement to deploy

  • 100 PVUs of WebSphere Application Server Network Deployment

  • 400 PVUs of WebSphere Application Server

  • 800 PVUs of WebSphere Application Server Liberty Core, at the same time

The real benefit of this flexibility is that the deployments can be revised as the needs of your business change.

As another example, if you need some additional WebSphere Application Server Liberty Core entitlements to begin a new project, and you have some WebSphere Application Server Network Deployment entitlements that are currently unused or can be consolidated, then you can reallocate available capacity within Family Edition from other WebSphere Application Server products to WebSphere Application Server Liberty Core. The only requirement here is that you do not exceed the purchased entitlements for all WebSphere Application Server products.
