Overview
Bottom rule

To cut costs, drive productivity, and provide new capabilities quickly, companies are turning to cloud computing to meet business needs. Cloud computing is a new consumption and delivery model providing applications, data, and IT resources to users as services delivered over the network.

Cloud applications are delivered as a service known as Software as a Service (SaaS). SaaS applications can help reduce IT costs by reducing the resources required for application deployment and increasing the productivity of business users by making applications available at the time of need. Because Cloud applications (from service providers) have a pricing structure that reduces budgetary issues, there is less delay in new application procurement.

As the popularity of SaaS and cloud applications grows, department-level solutions for reducing cost and increasing the effectiveness of specific employee teams face hurdles to grow these solutions, while supporting the wider enterprise. On a daily basis, users require access to various systems and applications that are critical to doing their job. These applications may include cloud applications and on-premise systems and applications.

It is critical that these applications and systems are integrated and function seamlessly, providing each user with the latest information. Many companies have a hybrid world of cloud and on-premise applications making integration critical.

WebSphere DataPower Cast Iron Appliance XH40 delivers a purpose-built, easy-to-use appliance designed for simplified deployment to deliver the capabilities needed for cloud and on-premise application integration. Designed to reduce installation and configuration time, WebSphere DataPower Cast Iron Appliance XH40 helps you rapidly deploy WebSphere Cast Iron-based SaaS integration.

New hardware platform for WebSphere DataPower appliances

  • 1U high-density rackmount design
  • Latest-generation hardware technology that can increase performance and capacity
  • Increased serviceability with multiple field-replaceable parts
  • Customized intrusion detection handling
  • Enhanced LEDs for different hardware components, which provide user feedback
  • New hardware diagnostic tool to help identify hardware problems

Today's dynamic business environments and economic uncertainty mean organizations must work smarter to remain competitive and respond to changing customer demands for better and newer products and services at lower costs. Working smarter means a business needs the agility to take advantage of new revenue opportunities and address competitive threats. Optimize costs by slashing operational and maintenance expenses while increasing efficiency.

For many businesses, a primary barrier to business agility and cost optimization is IT complexity. In order to achieve business goals, IT must be able to quickly and easily deliver on the needs of the business while supporting innovation.

WebSphere Cast Iron Cloud integration portfolio provides leading SaaS and cloud application integration. WebSphere Cast Iron Cloud integration enables you to connect the hybrid world of cloud and on-premise applications within days and achieve lower cost and higher return on investment in cloud and SaaS models.

Users can develop integration using a configuration, not coding approach and deploy them in the following form factors, each providing the same functionality:

  • WebSphere DataPower Cast Iron Appliance XH40 -- A self-contained physical appliance that provides everything needed to connect cloud and on premise applications. Built on market-leading IBM® technology, the appliance can be installed and managed within a local data center.
  • WebSphere Cast Iron Hypervisor Edition -- A virtual appliance that can be installed on your existing servers by using virtualization technology. Provides the same functionality as the physical appliance.
  • WebSphere Cast Iron Live -- A complete, multi-tenant cloud offering to connect cloud and on premise applications. WebSphere Cast Iron Live enables you to design, run, and manage integrations in the cloud without any infrastructure footprint on-site.

    For more information about acquiring WebSphere Cast Iron integration, contact an IBM representative, or visit

WebSphere DataPower Cast Iron Appliance XH40 is a 1U 4.4 CM (1.75-in), rack-mountable appliance, designed to fit into industry-standard racks, and can be attached to the network via Ethernet. The Cast Iron configuration, not coding approach helps numerous companies slash SaaS integration project costs, compared to traditional approaches. Companies have reduced ERP licensing costs by eliminating the need for cloud users to log into back-office applications. The term licensing pricing options available help companies slash their up-front, capital expenditure costs. WebSphere DataPower Cast Iron Appliance XH40 delivers the following sets of capabilities:

  • Comprehensive cloud integration scenarios
  • Comprehensive connectivity
  • Comprehensive reusability

Comprehensive Cloud integration scenarios. WebSphere DataPower Cast Iron Appliance XH40 provides the following complete integration capabilities in one product.

  • Cloud data migration. Allows data handling, using the WebSphere Cast Iron data cleansing and data migration capabilities, and enables expedited adoption of SaaS and cloud applications. This approach to data integration enables companies to cleanse, enrich, and migrate data from existing applications to cloud applications in real time.
  • Cloud data synchronization. Provides connectivity, workflow, and transformation features, enabling you to coordinate or orchestrate integration processes across multiple applications in real time. Now, SaaS and cloud users can immediately view data that is hidden in applications, minimizing any duplicate entries and maximizing decision making and productivity.
  • Cloud user interface (UI) mashups. Consolidate information from disparate sources for use within the native user interface of a single application. UI developers can mash up that data to present a single unified view, without moving the data from one application into another.

Comprehensive connectivity

WebSphere DataPower Cast Iron Appliance XH40 comes with built-in connectivity to hundreds of cloud, packaged, and proprietary on-premise applications, including ERP, customer relationship management (CRM), databases, web services, and flat files. It is completely self-contained and includes everything needed to complete integrations in one place.

This progressive approach to integration makes no distinction between local and remote applications because they establish connectivity to the end points by using native application protocols. The advantage is that no additional adapters are required, and there is nothing to install or change at the end points.

A Connector Development Kit is provided that allows skilled developers to extend WebSphere Cast Iron to add connectors to custom applications. With connectors built using the Connector Development Kit, end-users get the same first-class development experience on Cast Iron Studio as with the built-in connectors.

Comprehensive reusability

WebSphere DataPower Cast Iron Appliance XH40 includes hundreds of reusable template integration processes (TIPs) that are searchable with a single click in an online library. This online library contains templates for all of the most common cloud integration scenarios.

Templates provide a question-and-answer-based wizard that walks users through a common integration scenario. For example, a TIP might ask for all the information needed to transform an opportunity in a CRM system to an order in an ERP system.

Create customized, wizard-driven reusable templates with the point-and-click TIP Development Kit and make them instantly available to the entire Cast Iron user community.

At IBM's discretion you will receive CRU service or IBM will initiate shipment of a replacement machine to your location. You are responsible for its installation and verification of operation. You must pack the failed machine into the shipping container that contained the replacement machine and return the failed machine to IBM. Transportation charges, both ways, are paid by IBM. You may be charged for the replacement machine if IBM does not receive the failed machine within 15 days of your receipt of the replacement.

Non-IBM parts service

Under certain conditions, IBM provides services for selected non-IBM parts at no additional charge for machines that are covered under warranty service upgrades or maintenance services.

This service includes hardware problem determination (PD) on the non-IBM parts (for example, adapter cards, PCMCIA cards, disk drives, memory) installed within IBM machines and provides the labor to replace the failing parts at no additional charge.

If IBM has a Technical Service Agreement with the manufacturer of the failing part, or if the failing part is an accommodations part (a part with an IBM FRU label), IBM may also source and replace the failing part at no additional charge. For all other non-IBM parts, customers are responsible for sourcing the parts. Installation labor is provided at no additional charge, if the machine is covered under a warranty service upgrade or a maintenance service.
