IBM & Cloud Computing: Exclusive Q&A

The IT industry is faced with a complexity and affordability crisis – explosive information growth, heavily interconnected and interdependent systems, on average 70% of IT spending going to maintenance, low utilization of resources driving up fixed cost, energy consumption becoming an ever bigger drain on budgets. At the same time, business needs for flexibility and responsiveness continue unabated. This creates an urgency for enterprises to rethink the way their data centers are set up and managed, and how they receive and deliver services. Bring this together with advances in technology - from service orientation, automation and service management to virtualization - and you have what Dr Kristof Kloeckner, VP of Cloud Computing Platforms at IBM vividly calls "a perfect storm." Kloeckner was a Keynote speaker at SYS-CON's 3-day 2nd International Cloud Computing C... (more)

WebSphere Cover Story — ESB Implementation with WAS for z/OS V6

More and more companies are starting to adopt Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) - a framework for integrating business processes and supporting IT infrastructure as secure standardized components or services that can be reused and combined to address changing business priorities. Enterprise Services Bus is an important architectural element in a SOA. This article will discuss how to implement an ESB with WAS for z/OS V6. The ESB Concept We all know that SOA is an approach to define integration architectures based on the concept of a service. When you enable service interactions using existing Internet and intranet infrastructure between systems in an architecture, you can create massive point-to-point connections, which are very difficult to manage. It's necessary to have an infrastructure act as the intelligent, distributed, transactional, and messaging layer for ... (more)

An Open Source Approach to Software Integration

Enterprise Open Source Magazine editor-in-chief, Mark Hinkle, interviewed Mulesource (www.mulesource.com) CTO Ross Mason and founder of the Mule Enterprise Servive Bus (ESB) project (http://mule.mulesource.org) about the usefulness of this technology and its recent success. EOSM: What is Mule, and what led you to create it? Mason: A few years ago, I was working for a middleware vendor, and we were doing a very early ESB implementation for an investment bank in London. We only integrated six systems, but it took us a year and a half, and we really hit a wall in terms of technology challenges. We had to build a lot of the infrastructure architecture ourselves, which meant lots of code to test and maintain. During that time, I realized that there really wasn't anything out there to help developers integrate applications in a clean, easy, and consistent way. The vision... (more)

Turbo-Charging Applications with Mid-Tier Distributed Caching

Today's applications require faster and more frequent access to data at the mid-tier than ever before. This is due to a number of factors, including massive growth of data volumes and the extreme processing requirements that accompany such growth, the pressure from ever-changing business requirements, and the adoption of architectural approaches and frameworks such as Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) and Web 2.0 and the resulting demands that these frameworks make on data. The requirements of accessing and modifying this data quickly using many different forms such as batch, OLTP, and online access are stretching back-end data stores to the limit. Much of this overload is caused by the classic mismatch between the object and relational worlds and the massive overhead required to convert data between the two different formats. The problem is compounded further when... (more)

The End of Middleware As You Know It

Dramatic industry changes - including vendor consolidation, outsourcing and the growth of open source - highlight the need for a better way. When a SOA implementation costs too much, the culprit is often the old-fashioned, proprietary and expensive server or hub-based middleware. A better, distributed approach to SOA infrastructure can help reduce cost and increase the benefit of SOA implementation. This presentation includes an overview of the industry trends driving us toward SOA and explains why traditional middleware systems do not meet modern requirements as well as a distributed approach to SOA infrastructure. Speaker Bio: As chief technology officer at IONA, Eric Newcomer is responsible for IONA's technology strategy and participation in standards bodies. Eric joined IONA in November 1999 as the company's transaction processing architect, after nearly 16 years a... (more)
