Pinned topic Get rid of Apache Webserver ... DataPower ... Possiblity

‏2013-01-09T23:04:01Z |
Hi All,

Well known issue if we've Apache webservers, yup with the upgrades and applying patches.

1) One would straight away prompt to IBM HTTP servers a good option :).

2) I want to go ahead with a very good hop here ... is this is an oppurtunity for utilizing AO ILD ?. Is this a good solution ?. or is it a big hop.

3) DP can cover security and loadbalancing features, my one concern is how about the static content ?

Any thoughts on this ?.

Thanks!
Salla

    On # 3 heard from friend/colleague from previous client where i know I've seen this but haven't worked on it though that DP can indeed host some static content too ....
    any things that we need to take care here ?

    #2 is it a big hop or is it a good idea to stick with LB's itself. I believe if not then where ?.

    Please feel free to throw some light on these.

    Thanks!

    Hermann/Steve/ken,

    Can you guys take this as a use case .... with Rest features ( for the static content and other feature ...ignoring the AO stuff ) this should be doable right ?...

    Thank you!

    Hello Salla,

    I am interested in this as well. We also looked at this, but were slowed down b/c of heavy involvement in utilizing Clear Trust authentication. Let me know your findings :)

    thanks,

    Hi Doyle,

    We took another path.

    We're not considering DP for this task as the number of servers was too high. We might be consolidating them ( less footprints)...

    Thanks!
