SOA — Crossing the Application/Network Boundary
“SOA – Crossing the Application / Network Boundary” Guest Experts: Jeff Browning, Product Manager, iControl (SOAP/XML API for network devices) and Steve Orrin, Chief Technology Officer, Sarvega Topics: What impact does SOA have on the network? How can application developers consider network assets as a Services and resources they can consume? How can application folks and network admins get along in the new world of SOA? Setting the Stage: ZapThink Analysts ZapThink senior analysts Jason Bloomberg and Ronald Schmelzer will explore how the application / network boundary is increasingly blurring as application tasks increasingly impact how the network runs, and how distributed computing on the network changes the way applications are built. Learn how SOA helps the bring the formerly separate worlds of application and network together to build a cohesive enterprise architecture. Guest Expert: Jeff Browning, Product Manager, iControl (SOAP/XML API for network devices) Jeff will cover how…

Reactivity: Efficiently Mediating Identity in a Heterogeneous, Service-Oriented Environment
As companies move to architectures that enable loosely coupled, composite, Service-oriented interactions between distributed systems, they quickly realize that identity management is essential to making such interactions reliable, predictable, and secure. The only way to build applications that rely on functionality from disparate systems in the enterprise is to separate identity and policy from the underlying systems that have heretofore locked those two capabilities within their own, proprietary environments. However, implementing the sort of federated enterprise identity management capabilities that Service-Oriented Architecture requires is difficult because existing identity and policy information reside in a wide range of systems. Reactivity is one vendor that provides new technologies and approaches for accessing and mediating identity and policy information that companies require.

Reactivity SOA Gateway a Finalist in the Best of Interop Awards for NetWorld+Interop 2005 Las Vegas
“With XML expected to comprise 48 percent of all network traffic by 2008, it is critical that XML infrastructure appliances accelerate cross-system operation such as credential and schema validation,” said Jason Bloomberg at ZapThink. “Reactivity, with their Multi-Way Connect and credential and schema optimization has proven again that they understand and anticipate the issue with enterprise XML Web services deployment.”   Read more at: Yahoo!

Sarvega: Appliance and Embeddable Software Approaches that Address XML Performance Challenges
As XML continues to proliferate on the corporate network, companies increasingly desire approaches that provide capabilities for security, management, process, and data manipulation without degrading overall network performance. As a result, hardware platform vendors are providing solutions that are able to offer substantially higher performance over purely software-based solutions. As a result, companies need new approaches to deal with messages on the network that stress the capabilities of the general purpose hardware and software that now deals with the problem. Sarvega aims to meet these needs with a family of appliance and OEM-able software solutions that provide wire-speed solutions for XML and Web Services security, transformation, and emerging messaging needs. The company has also recently announced the Sarvega XML Context Router, an XML appliance that provides secure and reliable routing and messaging capabilities for XML at wire speed based on deep content inspection and publish/subscribe messaging.[hide -1]Download…

Grand Central Communications: Integration on Demand
The Grand Central Business Services Network offers an implementation of Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA) that follows the “on demand” model of delivering software functionality as a Service. Through a virtualized set of integration and Service capabilities, businesses connect to the Business Services Network, allowing them to combine and share business Services within and between organizations without the constraints of having to pay for and host their own integration infrastructure. In addition to a wide range of Services that Grand Central provides, third-party companies and partners also publish Services to the Network for global access and sharing by partners, customers and other business units. The Business Services Network thus offers the capabilities, business value, and agility benefits of Service-oriented integration as a Service to multiple companies, allowing them to conduct business with each other in a flexible, cost-effective manner, without having the bear the burden of ongoing infrastructure investment.[hide -1]…

High Performance and Appliance Approaches for XML
Market Overview: New approaches are needed to deal with XML-based messages being exchanged on the network that are exceeding the capabilities of the general purpose hardware and software that is now being applied to the problem. Future Trends XML traffic is expected to increase from under 15% of all network traffic on the network in 2004 to just under 48% of all LAN network traffic by 2008. The total XML performance optimization market will reach $1.2 billion by 2010. Decision Points The effective processing of Very Large Messages (messages that exceed the capabilities of general-purpose processors) is an issue that threatens the long-term viability of SOA implementations.
