We’ve just posted a new report up at www.lustratus.com that looks at a number of vendors offering devices that promise to lessen the burden of managing, accelerating and securing a service oriented architecture.
Authored by my colleague Steve Craggs, the report looks at “appliances” including IBM’s DataPower range, Layer 7’s SecureSpan XML Appliance and Intel’s SOA Expressway. I say “appliances” in inverted commas because Intel’s product is wonderfully described as a software “appliance”. Surely the award for the most spin in a product category goes to Intel.
The document can be found here. Steve tells me that he’s planning to look at devices from the likes of Solace Systems and TIBCO in future reports.
