Overview
Bottom rule

To cut costs, drive productivity, and provide new capabilities quickly, companies are turning to cloud computing to meet business needs. Cloud computing is a new consumption and delivery model providing applications, data, and IT resources to users as services delivered over the network. Cloud applications are delivered as a service known as Software as a Service (SaaS). SaaS applications can help reduce IT costs by reducing the resources required for application deployment and increasing the productivity of business users by making applications available at the time of need. Because Cloud applications (from service providers) have a pricing structure that reduces budgetary issues, there is less delay in new application procurement.

As the popularity of SaaS and cloud applications grows, department-level solutions for reducing cost and increasing the effectiveness of specific employee teams face hurdles to grow these solutions, while supporting the wider enterprise. On a daily basis, users require access to various systems and applications that are critical to doing their job. These applications may include cloud applications and on-premise systems and applications. It is critical that these applications and systems are integrated and function seamlessly, providing each user with the latest information. Many companies have a hybrid world of cloud and on-premise applications making integration critical.

WebSphere DataPower Cast Iron Appliance XH40 delivers a purpose-built, easy-to-use appliance designed for simplified deployment to deliver the capabilities needed for cloud and on-premise application integration. Designed to reduce installation and configuration time, WebSphere DataPower Cast Iron Appliance XH40 helps you rapidly deploy WebSphere Cast Iron-based SaaS integration.

Description
Bottom rule

Today's dynamic business environments and economic uncertainty mean organizations must work smarter to remain competitive and respond to changing customer demands for better and newer products and services at lower costs. Working smarter means your business needs the agility to take advantage of new revenue opportunities and address competitive threats. Optimize costs by slashing operational and maintenance expenses while increasing efficiency.

For many businesses, a primary barrier to business agility and cost optimization is IT complexity. In order to achieve business goals, IT must be able to quickly and easily deliver on the needs of the business while supporting innovation.

WebSphere Cast Iron Cloud integration portfolio provides leading SaaS and cloud application integration. WebSphere Cast Iron Cloud integration enables you to connect the hybrid world of cloud and on-premise applications within days and achieve lower cost and higher return on investment in cloud and SaaS models.

You can develop integration using a "configuration, not coding" approach and deploy them in the following form factors, each providing the same functionality:

  • WebSphere DataPower Cast Iron Appliance XH40 -- A self-contained physical appliance that provides everything needed to connect cloud and on premise applications. Built on market-leading IBM technology, the appliance can be installed and managed within a local data center.
  • WebSphere Cast Iron Hypervisor™ Edition -- A virtual appliance that can be installed on your existing servers by using virtualization technology. Provides the same functionality as the physical appliance.
  • Cast Iron Cloud2 -- A complete multi-tenant cloud to connect cloud and on premise applications. Cast Iron Cloud2 enables you to design, run, and manage integrations in the cloud without any infrastructure footprint on-site.

    For more information about how to acquire the Cast Iron Cloud2 offering, contact your IBM sales representative, or visit

WebSphere DataPower Cast Iron Appliance XH40 is a 1U 4.4 cm (1.75 inch) rack-mountable hardware appliance, designed to fit into industry-standard racks, and can be attached to the network via Ethernet. WebSphere DataPower Cast Iron Appliance XH40 cannot be taken apart and deployed within other servers. WebSphere DataPower Cast Iron Appliance XH40 delivers the following sets of capabilities:

  • Complete cloud integration scenarios
  • Complete connectivity
  • Complete reusability

Complete Cloud integration scenarios. WebSphere DataPower Cast Iron Appliance XH40 provides the following complete integration capabilities in one product.

  • Cloud data migration. Data handling, using the Cast Iron data cleansing and data migration capabilities, lets you expedite adoption of SaaS and cloud applications. This approach to data integration enables companies to cleanse, enrich, and migrate data from existing applications to cloud applications in real time.
  • Cloud data synchronization. Provides connectivity, workflow, and transformation features, letting you to coordinate or orchestrate integration processes across multiple applications in real time. Because SaaS and cloud users can immediately view data that is hidden in applications, duplicate entries are minimized and their own decision making and productivity is maximized.
  • Cloud user interface (UI) mashups. Often information from disparate sources must be brought together and displayed within the native user interface of a single application. WebSphere DataPower Cast Iron Appliance XH40 can mash up that data to present a single unified view, without taking the data from one application and putting it into another.

Complete connectivity

WebSphere DataPower Cast Iron Appliance XH40 comes with built-in connectivity to hundreds of cloud, packaged, and proprietary on-premise applications, including enterprise resource planning (ERP), customer relationship management (CRM), databases, web services, and flat files. It is completely self-contained and includes everything needed to complete integrations in one place.

This progressive approach to integration makes no distinction between local and remote applications because they establish connectivity to the end points by using native application protocols. The advantage is that no additional adapters are required, and there is nothing to install or change at the end points.

Complete reusability

WebSphere DataPower Cast Iron Appliance XH40 includes hundreds of reusable template integration processes (TIPs) that are searchable with a single click in an online library. This online library contains templates for all of the most common cloud integration scenarios. These templates provide a question-and-answer-based wizard that walks users through a common integration scenario. For example, a TIP might ask for all the information needed to transform an opportunity in a CRM system to an order in an ERP system.

Cast Iron customers and partners can create their own wizard-driven reusable templates with the point-and-click TIP Development Kit and make them instantly available to the entire Cast Iron user community.

At IBM's discretion you will receive CRU service or you must disconnect the failing machine for collection arranged by IBM. IBM will provide you with a shipping container for you to return your machine to a designated service center. A courier will pick up your machine and deliver it to the designated service center. Following its repair or exchange, IBM will arrange the return delivery of the machine to your location. You are responsible for its installation and verification.

CRU and Customer Carry-In or Mail-In Service

At IBM's discretion you will receive CRU service or you will deliver or mail, as IBM specifies (prepaid, unless IBM specifies otherwise) the failing machine suitably packaged to a location IBM designates. After IBM has repaired or exchanged the machine, IBM will make it available for your collection or, for mail-in service, IBM will return it to you at IBM's expense, unless IBM specifies otherwise. You are responsible for the subsequent installation and verification of the machine.

CRU and Machine Exchange Service

At IBM's discretion you will receive CRU service or IBM will initiate shipment of a replacement machine to your location. You are responsible for its installation and verification of operation. You must pack the failed machine into the shipping container that contained the replacement machine and return the failed machine to IBM. Transportation charges, both ways, are paid by IBM. You may be charged for the replacement machine if IBM does not receive the failed machine within 15 days of your receipt of the replacement.

Non-IBM parts service

Under certain conditions, IBM provides services for selected non-IBM parts at no additional charge for machines that are covered under warranty service upgrades or maintenance services.

This service includes hardware problem determination (PD) on the non-IBM parts (for example, adapter cards, PCMCIA cards, disk drives, memory) installed within IBM machines and provides the labor to replace the failing parts at no additional charge.

If IBM has a Technical Service Agreement with the manufacturer of the failing part, or if the failing part is an accommodations part (a part with an IBM FRU label), IBM may also source and replace the failing part at no additional charge. For all other non-IBM parts, customers are responsible for sourcing the parts. Installation labor is provided at no additional charge, if the machine is covered under a warranty service upgrade or a maintenance service.
