Layer 7 Launches Industry First Oracle Service Bus Appliance

“The integrated OSB-Layer 7 Appliance allows us to simplify our SOA security architecture through fewer components, while extending our OSB functionality into the DMZ,” said Rick Butler, chief engineer for Raytheon Information Security Solutions. “This opens several new deployment scenarios to us, and reduces our SOA implementation cost and complexity.”

“Gateway appliances can help simplify the deployment of a SOA, Web 2.0 and Cloud Service infrastructures. These gateways are also a crucial part of governance; allowing companies to enhance and enforce policies around security, performance and availability.” added Gartner Research Director Frank Kenney.

“The Sun Fire X4170 server is a prime example of Sun’s systems innovation, delivering high performance and enterprise reliability in one rack unit,” said Marshall Choy, senior group manager, Engineered Solutions Group, Sun Microsystems, Inc. “Integrating this Sun system with Layer 7 technology and the Oracle Service Bus provides Oracle Fusion customers with an efficient, streamlined solution for managing enterprise SOA.”

The Layer 7 Oracle Service Bus Appliance will be available from Layer 7 beginning Oct. 11, 2009.
