SOA Runtime Governance Leader Demonstrates Interoperability With Microsoft Windows Server Application Server Enhancements
Oct. 27, 2008 08:33 AM
AmberPoint today announced support for “Dublin,” Microsoft’s enhancements to their market-leading Windows Server application server. As a result, organizations running composite applications in “Dublin” can readily ensure the health and well-being of their distributed systems. A joint demonstration will be given by Microsoft and AmberPoint staff at the Microsoft Professional Developers Conference (PDC).
The demo will showcase AmberPoint’s latest capabilities, including its ability to leverage the unique strengths of the .NET Framework and Windows Server. “Dublin” enhances the Windows Server application server role and provides an easy-to-manage platform for developing, deploying and reliably hosting middle-tier services built using Windows Communication Foundation (WCF) and Windows Workflow Foundation (WF). AmberPoint SOA Management System makes use of these new features to non-invasively provide visibility and control of applications and the business transactions flowing through them. This combination creates a breakthrough in governance of composite and SOA applications—without creating additional overhead.
“Windows Server delivers a high-performance, highly capable platform for deploying and running custom business applications built with the .NET Framework. ‘Dublin’ extends our leadership in this space by further simplifying the deployment, configuration, management, and scalability of composite applications,” said Burley Kawasaki, director in the Connected Systems Division at Microsoft Corporation. “Our strategic relationship with AmberPoint as part of the Business Process Alliance has fostered many valuable capabilities in this area. We are glad for the opportunity to demonstrate the next wave of these capabilities in our joint demonstration of AmberPoint and Dublin.”
“Our work with Microsoft continues to help pave the way to address customer needs for more reliable and beneficial composite applications,” said Gary Rinedollar, vice president of Business Development, AmberPoint. “We now look forward to bringing to market the capabilities and benefits we’re demonstrating here at Microsoft PDC.”
With solutions from AmberPoint, enterprises implementing composite applications can better understand system behavior, manage each transaction flowing across their distributed environments, and implement policies that automate performance management, remedy exceptional conditions and uphold security. Significantly, they can do all this without special coding to the application components or message tags. AmberPoint's non-invasive architecture allows SOA applications to evolve and grow without constant recoding to system components.
