To provide management for XML gateways across the enterprise and into cloud
Layer 7 Technologies has unveiled Enterprise Service Manager (ESM) that is fully embedded within each SecureSpan Gateway. It allows organisations to address critical service and administration requirements from a single, central location.
According to Layer 7, by using the ESM dashboard and a number of configurable reports, administrators can gain both a real-time and historical view of performance indicators, gaining insight into the health and performance of their SOA landscape, while facilitating trouble-shooting and capacity planning for their SecureSpan Gateway implementation.
In addition, organisations can automate the migration of policies across environments from development to test to production; from the enterprise to the cloud; and across geographies.
The company said that the companies looking to prototype new services in the cloud utilise ESM to clone their security policies between the enterprise and their cloud implementation, creating a security model across their extended enterprise.
ESM can be used to facilitate the migration of service prototypes from the cloud back into the enterprise. Additionally, organisations that require the ability to provision services in the cloud can use the ESM to clone services between the enterprise and the cloud, facilitating cloud bursting and disaster recovery, the company said.
Phil Walston, vice president of development and product management at Layer 7, said: “As a SOA implementation grows over time, the cost and complexity of managing the infrastructure and associated web services also increases. With the launch of the Enterprise Service Manager, our customers can now rapidly scale their SOA roll-out by managing all their Gateways and policies across the extended enterprise and into the cloud – from a single dashboard, significantly reducing their total cost of ownership.”
