Downloadable files


Download the IBM WebSphere DataPower XC10 Appliance Version 2.5 firmware release. You can also download the client, which is required for the appliance to work.

Download Description

This firmware release includes improved capability for the appliance, and the following new features:

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.

Continuous query
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.

Enable FIPS
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).

Grid alias
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.

Near-cache invalidation
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.

For more information about what's new, see the WebSphere DataPower XC10 Appliance V2.5 Information Center.
