IBM WebSphere Application Server

This is a fast, high-performance Java application server that can build, run, integrate, secure and manage dynamic cloud and web applications on premises, off premises or both. Designed for speed and flexibility, it also provides a choice of open-standards programming models for maximum developer productivity. It allows for web tier clustering over multiple application server instances, IHS load balancing up to 25 servers and includes Java Messenger Service and more.

IBM WebSphere Application Server Network Deployment

This is an advanced runtime environment for large-scale and mission-critical application deployments. It offers near-continuous availability and intelligent management capabilities with unlimited server allowance for IHS load balancing and full caching support (session and application). It provides centralized management for massive scalability (thousands of servers) and full integration with open platforms.

IBM WebSphere Application Server z/OS

On z/OS, WebSphere Application Server provides application portability across platforms and the ability to design your application architecture according to best fit principles. It helps modernize the mainframe, allowing you to more easily incorporate the mainframe into your architectural plans. Further, WebSphere Application Server z/OS has the ability to take advantage of key z/OS functions such as SAF for security, WLM for workload management, SMF for activity recording, and cross-memory.
