A new firmware release for the WebSphere DataPower XC10 Appliance Version 2.5 is available. This firmware upgrade is required for all users. You can also download the client, which is required for WebSphere DataPower XC10 Appliance to work.
WebSphere DataPower XC10 Appliance includes the following highlights for Version 2.5:
Enterprise data grid
Enterprise data grids use the eXtremeIO transport mechanism and a new serialization format. With the new transport and serialization format, you can connect both Java and .NET clients to the same data grid.
WebSphere eXtreme Scale Client for .NET
By installing the WebSphere® eXtreme Scale Client for .NET, you can deploy .NET applications that access the data grid.
Appliance startup status and delete tasks
You can now view the startup status of the appliance and delete tasks in the user interface.
When you develop client applications that interact with the data grid, you might require queries that retrieve automatic, real-time results when new entries are inserted or updated. You can use continuous query to be notified in your client Java™ virtual machine (JVM) when data is inserted or updated in the data grid. This feature makes grid and data management easier for developers, administrators or both.
You can configure the appliance collective to use Federal Information Processing Standard (FIPS) 140-2 for all encrypted network communication. This standard ensures high protection of data as it is sent over the wire.
eXtreme Data Format (XDF)
XDF is based on the MapSerializerPlugin plug-in, and is now the default serialization technology that is used when you are running IBM eXtremeIO (XIO).
You can use the REST gateway to create and manage a grid alias. Use a grid alias when you need to populate more than one grid at the same time.
You can configure near cache invalidation to remove stale data from the near cache as quickly as possible. When an update, deletion, or invalidation operation is run against the remote data grid, an asynchronous invalidation gets triggered in the near cache.
