Vordel 6 Launched as Industry's Most Advanced Platform for Fast, Safe, Connectivity of SOA
Vordel Gateway Increases Performance, Strengthens Security and Enhances Interoperability in SOA
Dublin, Ireland and Boston, MA - September 15, 2010 Vordel, a provider of fast, safe, connectivity for SOA and Cloud services, today unveiled version 6.0 of its market leading Vordel Gateway. With Vordel 6, the company enables enterprises to improve the control of SOA services, alleviating the issues associated with the increasing complexity and scale of SOA deployments. Vordel 6 offers enhanced usability and interoperability, enabling enterprises to easily maintain a seamless and highly-controlled configuration and version change management process across the entire SOA network. These advances improve the overall productivity of engineering and architecture teams and reduce costs.
As businesses integrate their SOA and Cloud-based applications, policies have inevitably become increasingly complex. Vordel 6, unique among Gateways in the market, provides a highly-controlled policy lifecycle management environment simplifying service migration from development to production, from appliance to software and to virtualized Cloud-based instance. These benefits are coupled with the ability to monitor and analyze live streaming and historical data, while maintaining the highest levels of service performance without compromising on security or scalability. Additionally, Vordel provides the enterprise with a unified control framework to govern service usage and enables the efficent running of applications in SOA architectures.
Paolo Malinverno, Vice President, Gartner Research said, "Any successful deployment of services will need effective SOA governance. Companies need to ask themselves how they will address the visibility, auditability and manageability of an operational SOA scenario, where a potentially large set of moving parts (some on-premises, some "in the cloud") has replaced the old, stable and well-known set of applications.
Speaking at the launch, Vordel, CTO Mark O'Neill said, "With Vordel 5 the company delivered the world's fastest XML Gateway and SOA appliance. Vordel 6 takes SOA to the next level by enabling enterprises to connect systems quickly and securely. Where other approaches require costly coding, Vordel reduces costs by only requiring drag-and-drop configuration. Using Vordel, enterprises can link .NET systems to Oracle systems, or TIBCO, or Adobe Flex, graphically and quickly. Vordel 6 delivers on the promise of "Fast, Safe, Connectivity" for the enterprise.
Vordel will be hosting a reception at Oracle Open World on September 22nd. Register to meet the team and learn more about 6.
