AmberPoint has announced expanded
support for BEA's products with the addition of AquaLogic Service Bus
2.5 and BEA WebLogic Server 9.2. Utilizing both agent-based and
agentless technologies, AmberPoint delivers SOA runtime governance
regardless of an organization's current platform decisions and future
mergers and acquisitions.
"To gain the most from their investments in SOA infrastructure, enterprises require seamless interoperability between leading platforms and tools," said Rob Levy, chief technology officer, BEA Systems. "We're pleased to have AmberPoint's support for the latest versions of BEA AquaLogic Service Bus and the BEA WebLogic Platform, as it can help enable our customers to best leverage the native SOA capabilities of our leading software with AmberPoint's runtime management and governance capabilities."
AmberPoint's SOA runtime governance software simplifies real-time visibility and control at each stage of the SOA lifecycle -- from development and QA through production use. AmberPoint utilizes a policy-based approach to governance in order to manage the health and well-being of SOA applications.
AmberPoint also announced the extension of its agentless capabilities to BEA WebLogic Server 9.2, enabling it to provision WebLogic Server to execute security policies without the need to install AmberPoint agents in the environment. As a result of this support AmberPoint customers can implement WebLogic Server's native security capabilities.
AmberPoint offers agentless policy enforcement options in addition to agent-based mechanisms. With its agentless architecture, AmberPoint delegates runtime policy execution to the SOA infrastructure whenever policy-capable infrastructure is in place.
"Our close partnership with BEA has resulted in a large number of enterprise-class deployments with leading organizations in a variety of industries," said Paul Butterworth, AmberPoint chief technology officer. "Our continued support for the latest versions of BEA WebLogic and BEA AquaLogic will bring significant benefits to our mutual customers."
Frank Ding, engineering analysis & technical computing manager at Simpson Strong-Tie, discussed the advantages of utilizing the cloud for occasional scientific computing, identified the obstacles to doing so, and proposed workarounds to some of those obstacles.
The private industry least likely to adopt public cloud services for data storage are financial institutions. Holding the most sensitive and heavily-regulated of data types, personal financial information, banks and similar institutions are mostly moving towards private cloud services – and doing so at great cost.
In this week's hand-picked assortment, researchers explore the path to more energy-efficient cloud datacenters, investigate new frameworks and runtime environments that are compatible with Windows Azure, and design a uniﬁed programming model for diverse data-intensive cloud computing paradigms.
