IBM WebSphere DataPower SOA Appliances represent the first of the IBM (Service Oriented Architecture) SOA appliances that support enterprises' embrace of SOA, with a portfolio that can minimize the complexity of implementing SOA infrastructures. IBM WebSphere DataPower SOA Appliances are based on open standards, and can help lower the barriers for SOA deployments by simplifying and accelerating the underlying infrastructure required to process XML, Web services, and legacy messages that form the basis for SOA.

IBM WebSphere DataPower SOA Appliances are 1U (1.75 inch) rack-mountable hardware appliances designed to fit into industry-standard racks, and can be attached to the network through Ethernet. DataPower solutions cannot be taken apart and deployed within other servers. The following three SOA appliances offer expanded capabilities.

IBM WebSphere DataPower XML Security Gateway XS40

This appliance provides a security-enforcement point for XML and Web services transactions, including encryption, firewall filtering, digital signatures, schema validation, WS-Security, XML access control, XPath and detailed logging, and includes:

  • An XML/SOAP firewall: The DataPower XML Security Gateway XS40 filters traffic at wirespeed, based on information from layers 2 through 7 of the protocol stack; from field-level message content and SOAP envelopes to IP address, port/hostname, payload size or other metadata. Filters can be predefined with easy point-and-click XPath filtering GUI, and automatically uploaded to change security policies based on the time of day or other triggers.
  • XML/SOAP data validation: With its unique ability to perform XML Schema validation as well as message validation, at wirespeed, the XS40 ensures incoming and outgoing XML documents are legitimate and properly structured. This protects against threats such as XML Denial of Service (XDoS) attacks, buffer overflows, or vulnerabilities created by deliberately or inadvertently malformed XML documents.
  • Field level message security: The XS40 selectively shares information through encryption/decryption and signing/verification of entire messages or of individual XML fields. These granular and conditional security policies can be based on nearly any variable, including content, IP address, hostname or other user-defined filters.
  • XML Web services access control: The XS40 supports a variety of access control mechanisms, including WS-Security, WS-Trust, X.509, SAML, SSL, LDAP, RADIUS and simple client/URL maps. The XS40 can control access rights by rejecting unsigned messages and verifying signatures within SAML assertions.
  • Service virtualization: XML Web services require companies to link partners to resources without leaking information about their location or configuration. With the combined power of URL rewriting, high-performance XSL transforms and XML/SOAP routing, the XS40 can transparently map a rich set of services to protected back-end resources with high performance.
  • Centralized policy management: The XS40's wirespeed performance enables enterprises to centralize security functions in a single drop-in device that can enhance security and help reduce ongoing maintenance costs. Simple firewall functionality can be configured via a GUI and running in minutes, and using the power of XSLT, the XS40 can also create sophisticated security and routing rules. Because the XS40 works with leading Policy Managers, it is an ideal policy execution engine for securing next generation applications. Manageable locally or remotely, the XS40 supports SNMP, script-based configuration, and remote logging to integrate seamlessly with leading management software.
  • Web services management/service level management: With support for Web services Distributed Management (WSDM), Universal Description, Discovery, and Integration (UDDI), Web Services Description Language (WSDL), Dynamic Discovery, and broad support for Service Level Management configurations, the XS40 natively offers a robust Web services management framework for the efficient management of distributed Web service endpoints and proxies in heterogeneous SOA environments, as well as SLM alerts and logging, and pull and enforce policies, which helps enable broad integration support for third-party management systems and unified dashboards, in addition to robust support and enforcement for governance frameworks and policies.

IBM WebSphere DataPower Integration Appliance XI50: This appliance provides transport-independent transformations between binary, flat text files and XML message formats. Visual tools are used to describe data formats, create mappings between different formats and define message choreography. This appliance can transform binary, flat-text and other non-XML messages to help offer an innovative solution for security-rich XML enablement, enterprise message buses and mainframe connectivity.

  • Any-to-any Transformation Engine: XI50 can parse and transform arbitrary binary, flat text and XML messages, including EDI, COBOL Copybook, ISO 8583, CSV, ASN.1 and ebXML. Unlike approaches based on custom programming, DataPower's patented DataGlue technology uses a fully declarative, metadata-based approach.
  • Integrated Message Level Security: XI50 includes mature message-level security and access control functionality. Messages can be filtered, validated, encrypted and signed, helping to provide more secure enablement of high-value applications. Supported technologies include WS-Security, WS-Trust, SAML and LDAP.
  • Lightweight Message Brokering:
    • Sophisticated multi-step message routing, filtering, and processing.
    • Multiple synchronous and asynchronous transport protocols.
    • Detailed logging and audit trail, including non-repudiation support.

IBM WebSphere DataPower XML Accelerator XA35: This product can help speed common types of XML processing by offloading this processing from servers and networks. It can perform XML parsing, XML Schema validation, XPath routing, Extensible Stylesheet Language Transformations (XSLT), XML compression and other essential XML processing with wirespeed XML performance.

  • Unmatched performance: DataPower's purpose-built message processing engine can deliver wirespeed performance for both XML to XML and XML to HTML transformations with increased throughput and decreased latency
  • Ease of use: The self-learning XA35 provides drop-in acceleration with virtually no changes to the network or application software. No proprietary schemas, coding or API's are required to install or manage the device and it supports popular XML Integrated Development Environments (IDEs) to help reduce the number of hours spent in the development and debugging of XML applications.
  • Helps reduce infrastructure costs: Unlike simple content switches that only redirect business documents, the DataPower XML Accelerator XA35 fully parses, processes and transforms XML with wirespeed performance and scalability to help reduce the need for stacks of servers. The XA35 also supports accelerated SSL processing to help further lessen the load on server software.
  • Helps cut development costs: The XA35 can enable multiple applications to leverage a single, uniformed XML processing layer for all XML processing needs. By standardizing on high-performance hardware appliances, enterprises can deploy sophisticated applications while helping to eliminate unnecessary hours of application debugging and tuning for marginal performance gains.
  • Intelligent XML processing: In addition to wirespeed processing, DataPower appliances support XML routing, XML pipeline processing, XML compression, XML/XSL caching, as well as other intelligent processing capabilities to help manage XML traffic.
  • Advanced management: The DataPower XML Accelerator XA35 provides real-time visibility into critical XML statistics such as throughput, transaction counts, errors, and other processing statistics. Data network level analysis is provided, and includes server health information, and traffic statistics, as well as management and configuration data.
