Perhaps the IBM website might give the high level information you're seeking: http://www-03.ibm.com/software/products/us/en/datapower-xi52 The Xi-52 is a follow-on to the XI-50 but provide the same functionality, albeit the XI-52 has more memory, faster processor, etc.

Many thanks for your reply.
I had gone through the Datapower XI52 related documents. I am asking FAQ here because for any Datapower profile what type of question should we ask. It will be better if you provide the list of questions.
