SOA Software Releases Service Manager for BEA AquaLogic
SOA Software, a provider of comprehensive SOA and Web services management, security and governance solutions, today announced the launch of a new edition of its Service Manager product.
The following details were provided:
SOA Software’s Service Manager for BEA AquaLogic is designed to provide enterprise Web services management capabilities to BEA AquaLogic, including heterogeneous endpoint and service level agreement monitoring, in-depth error handling and root cause analysis, and end-to-end auditing.
“SOA Software’s Service Manager for BEA AquaLogic product is designed to work in conjunction with AquaLogic to create a powerful SOA Infrastructure solution,” said Rob Levy, executive vice president, New Product Strategy, BEA Systems, Inc.
“BEA is pleased to partner with recognized industry leaders like SOA Software to offer innovative solutions to our customers.” Service Manager for BEA AquaLogic is designed to monitor and manage Web services deployed across distributed heterogeneous platforms. It can help create powerful performance, throughput and fault-management dashboards showing in real-time how any service mediated by AquaLogic is performing.
Service Manager for BEA AquaLogic can deliver the following core capabilities for BEA AquaLogic customers:
- Service Level Agreement (SLA) monitoring and management – using an advanced policy-based model for capturing performance and usage data at each instance of a specific Web service endpoint, whatever platform the service is deployed on, and processing that captured data centrally, Service Manager can monitor, report, and act on defined service-level thresholds for individual services.
- Distributed fault management and alerting – Service Manager monitors Web services for operational faults and security violations generating instantaneous alerts at the service endpoint. These alerts are processed centrally and can be distributed and acted upon using a wide range of proven mechanisms.
- Policy meta-data management – Service Manager integrates with a UDDIv3 registry to discover policy and service meta-data stored in its built-in meta-data repository. It uses this meta-data to decide how to enforce policy at the service provider and implement it at the service consumer.
- End-to-end auditing – Service Manager can capture and maintain complete audit records, including optional message data, for any and all transactions executed by BEA AquaLogic. It maintains a central database of message and performance data that provides a comprehensive audit trail for internal, or external reporting tools.
