Description
Bottom rule

The WebSphere DataPower Integration Blade XI50B provides support for:

  • Any-to-any data transformation between a wide range of data formats, including wire-speed XML transformation, text, binary, COBOL copybooks, industry standards, and custom formats
  • Sophisticated multistage pipeline processing and content-based message routing
  • Optimized bridging between wire-line messaging protocols including MQ, WebSphere JMS, third-party JMS, FTP, and HTTP
  • Data validation, field-level security, Web services management, and access control
  • Direct-to-database access including DB2®, Oracle, and Sybase

The WebSphere DataPower Integration Blade XI50B can connect natively to a DB2 V9 database, running on a range of platforms including z/OS. The WebSphere DataPower Integration Blade XI50B can use the XML capabilities built into DB2 V9 to:

  • Insert XML text directly into the database
  • Modify XML text stored in the database
  • Query XML data using XQuery and SQL
  • Retrieve XML data

WebSphere DataPower Integration Blade XI50B is a complete, purpose-built hardware platform for delivering highly manageable, security-enhanced, and scalable SOA solutions. As specialized SOA hardware, the WebSphere DataPower Integration Blade XI50B provides, in a single hardened device, many core functions to SOA deployments, such as service level management, routing, data and policy transformations, policy enforcement, and access control. Additional advantages of a hardware appliance in the network layer include the ability to perform more security and structural checks without performance degradation.

There are numerous opportunities to take advantage of the XI50B Enterprise Service Bus (ESB) capabilities, its legacy enablement and integration features, and its capacity to improve Web services management and SOA governance. Some sample use cases for the WebSphere DataPower Integration Blade XI50B include:

  • Drop-in integration for heterogeneous environments

    As a core offering in the IBM ESB product portfolio, the WebSphere DataPower Integration Blade XI50B is a purpose-built hardware ESB for simplified deployment and hardened security that can quickly transform data between a wide variety of formats, including XML, legacy, industry standards, and custom formats. The WebSphere DataPower Integration Blade XI50B provides core ESB functionality, including routing, bridging, transformation, and event handling. The WebSphere DataPower Integration Blade XI50B can provide a reliable, performance-oriented solution to many integration challenges. Because it is not limited to handling just XML, the XI50B can resonate with IT organizations that need to benefit from the connectivity of SOA deployments but must also deal with their current reality of managing multiple proprietary, industry, company-specific, or legacy data formats. The XI50B is a true drop-in integration point for such environments, helping to reduce the time and cost of integrations, and speed the time-to-market for services.

  • Innovative XML and Web-services enablement of legacy infrastructure

    For accelerated, security-rich integration capabilities, the XI50B provides transport mediation, routing, and transformations among binary, text, and XML message formats. Visual tools can be used to describe data formats, create mappings between different formats, and define message flows. With native connectivity to DB2 and System z®, the XI50B offers an innovative solution for security-rich XML enablement of legacy systems, as well as mainframe connectivity.

  • Policy-driven approach to Web services management and SOA governance

    Centralized Web services management tasks and policy enforcement, decoupled from applications, can help the XI50B increase your SOA infrastructure flexibility and scalability while simultaneously offering you improved insight, visibility, and control. Moving functions such as access control, Web services management, security, and policy enforcement onto the XI50B means that IT architects and operations, security, and business personnel can decouple these functions from the core business applications, helping to simplify development, deployment, and manageability.

  • Integration with registry and repository, security, identity, and service management software

    The XI50B integrates with a variety of registry and repository, security, identity, and service management software applications. Coupled with access control software such as IBM Tivoli Access Manager, the XI50B enforces fine-grained access controls. Working with the IBM Tivoli Federated Identity Manager, the XI50B provides federated Web services identity, and policy management between organizations and enterprises. Integrated with IBM Tivoli Composite Application Manager for SOA, the XI50B monitors Web service and SOA traffic flows for end-to-end service management and dashboard monitoring. Using a registry and repository such as WebSphere Registry and Repository can help you discover and reuse services and configure new services for DataPower policy and security enforcement. The combination of these applications and the robust XI50B security features can provide the comprehensive capabilities for SOA security and Web services management that enterprises increasingly require.

  • Advanced Web services standards support and interoperability

    IBM recognizes that SOA must address the need to integrate heterogeneous environments both within and outside the enterprise. The WebSphere DataPower SOA Appliance portfolio has a long-standing history of support for key and advanced standards, including WS-Security, WS-Policy, WS-ReliableMessaging, Simple Object Access Protocol (SOAP), Web Services Distributed Management (WSDM), WS-I Profiles, WS-Addressing, eXtensible Access Control Markup Language (XACML), Security Assertion Markup Language (SAML), Secure Socket Layer (SSL), and proprietary single sign-on (SSO) tokens. Additional third-party interoperability capabilities include Universal Description, Discovery, and Integration (UDDI) registries, and such databases as Oracle and Sybase.

  • Integration across the IBM SOA foundation for smart SOA deployments

    The XI50B has broad and deep integration across the IBM SOA foundation. Integration with popular integrated development environments such as the IBM Rational® portfolio can help reduce the time you spend in development and debugging. In addition to interoperability, the XI50B also features deep integration with products such as WebSphere MQ, WebSphere Enterprise Service Bus, WebSphere Message Broker, and DB2 to help process SOA transactions in a faster, more secure and simplified way. Additionally, the XI50B enables you to take advantage of the IBM autonomic computing self-management capabilities, creating infrastructures that require minimal intervention, which can help lower cost of ownership and improve service availability.

Application Integration functions include:

  • Virtually any-to-any data transformation between a wide range of data formats, including wire-speed XML transformation, text, binary, COBOL copybooks, industry standards, and custom formats
  • Sophisticated multistage pipeline processing and content-based message routing
  • Optimized bridging between wire-line messaging protocols including MQ, WebSphere JMS, third-party JMS, FTP, and HTTP (XB60)
  • Data validation, field-level security, Web services management, and access control
