About IBM Websphere Data Power

 IBM WebSphereDataPower SOA Appliances are purpose-built, easy-to-deploy network devices that simplify, help secure, and accelerate your XML and Web services deployments while extending your SOA infrastructure.

For security we have – Firewalls, Virus Scanners, Proxy Servers etc. Then we have Mainframes, Databases, server clusters where services are hosted. Also there will be a server that is used for authentication. Given all these h/w and software, the cost to install, configure, maintain and operate any of these components are going to be huge. Not to mention that we have XML, Copybook, flatfile and databases. This would need  data-transformations. Additional cost on h/w and s/w for that.

Datapower Integration Appliance XI50 in itself has the capabilities of  XS40 and XA35. In addition to that, it provides or has 

  • Any-to-any transformation engine
  • Transport bridging
  • Integrated message-level security
  • Lightweight message brokering

Which means that with all these capabilities you got yourself an ESB.

Different types Data power appliances :-

 XML Accelerator XA35:
  •           Accelerates XML processing and transformation.
  • ·         Increases throughput and reduces latency.
  • ·         Lowers development costs. 
XML Security Gateway XS40:

  • ·         Help secure SOA with XML threat protection andaccess control
  • ·         Combines Web services security, routing and management functions Drop-in, centralized        policy enforcement.
  • Easily integrates with existing infrastructure and processes.
Integration Appliance XI50:-


  • ·         Transforms messages (Binary to XML, Binary toBinary, XML to Binary)
  • ·         Bridges multiple protocols (e.g. MQ, HTTP,JMS)
  • ·         Routes messages based on content and policy.
  • ·                    Integrates message-level security and policy Functions.

    Hope this helps. So far this is my best effort to explain.
