Continuous availability, advanced management and performance optimization for large-scale deployments

IBM® WebSphere® Application Server Network Deployment provides an advanced, flexible runtime environment for large-scale application deployments. It offers near-continuous availability with advanced performance and management capabilities for mission-critical applications.

 

WebSphere Application Server Network Deployment provides improved integration for the software lifecycle, including application deployment and testing. This improved integration is made possible by the growing support from both IBM and third-party products for the WebSphere Application Server Liberty Profile ecosystem.

 

In addition, WebSphere Application Server Network Deployment offers flexibility in deployment. You can select the profile that best meets your operational and business needs—with this edition you are fully entitled to use the Full Profile and Liberty Profile in development and production.

 

WebSphere Application Server Network Deployment provides:

Support for open standards and broad programming models, including lightweight options for web application deployments in cloud and mobile environments.

Intelligent management and routing to help deliver reliability and better business results.

Improved operations and resiliency through advanced application availability, elasticity and quality of service.

Enhanced security and control using integrated management and administrative tools.

Increased developer productivity with the Liberty profile that delivers fast restart time and is small in size for building applications that do not require the full Java Enterprise Edition (Java EE) environment

 

Support for open standards and broad programming models

  • Includes Liberty profile for optimizing developer productivity and quickly delivering web, mobile and OSGi applications.
  • Uses Liberty profile as an ultra-lightweight, fast-starting application server that supports IBM WebSphere SDK Java Technology Edition V7.0 as an optional pluggable JDK.
  • Supports Web 2.0, Web Mobile, Java batch, XML, Service Component Architecture (SCA), Communications Enabled Applications (CEA), Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) and dynamic scripting programming languages.
  • Lets you migrate applications from non-IBM servers such as Tomcat, JBoss and Oracle.

 

Intelligent management and routing

  • Intelligent management capabilities help deliver resiliency and reliability.
  • Intelligent routing helps improve business results by ensuring priority is given to business-critical applications.
  • Requests are prioritized and routed based upon administrator defined rules by managing in-bound transaction (workload) requests in near real time.
  • Processes are streamlined for higher priority requests to help ensure that in-bound requests do not overwhelm backend applications.
  • Dynamic clustering can proactively provision and start or stop new instances of application server Java Virtual Machines (JVMs) based on workload demands.

 

Improved operations and resiliency

  • Allows applications to be upgraded without incurring outages to end users, or jeopardizing application or service availability.
  • Monitors the status of your application servers and can sense and respond to problem areas before end users suffer an outage.
  • Enables application rollout without outages and deploys new applications without jeopardizing application or service availability.
  • Uses edge components, which offer load balancing, caching and centralized security for enhanced performance at the edge of the network.
  • Uses parallel processing, allowing large jobs to be partitioned, governed and processed over a collection of server resources.

 

Enhanced security and control

  • Provides flexible and granular security control to help you protect customer data.
  • Filters records based on the content of log and trace record extensions. Tracks the unique identities of requests.
  • Enables you to audit changes made to your application server configuration using repository checkpoints.

 

Increase developer productivity

  • Includes the Liberty profile that delivers fast restart time and is small in size for building applications that do not require the full Java Enterprise Edition (Java EE) environment.
  • Supports IBM WebSphere SDK Java Technology Edition V7.0 as an optional pluggable JDK. Java 6 EE is installed with the product and used by default.
  • Provides Java EE support and certification.
  • Offers a simple programming model for constructing applications based on a service-oriented architecture (SOA).
  • Supports Java batch, Web 2.0, Web Mobile, XML, Service Component Architecture (SCA) and Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) programming models
