Layer 7 Technologies this week is shipping an appliance for the Oracle Service Bus (OSB), which integrates an XML gateway, security and high-performance hardware with  OSB, to provide enterprise IT low-cost, quick-deployment options for ESBs.

Layer 7 will demo the product during this week's Oracle OpenWorld 2009 in San Francisco.

The unique OSB appliance combines Layer 7’s SecureSpan XML Gateway, XML security, and performance and reliability from Sun Microsystems’ Sur Fire X4170.  OSB provides messaging, connectivity and virtualization, according to Layer 7 executives. 

“The integrated OSB-Layer 7 Appliance allows us to simplify our SOA security architecture through fewer components, while extending our OSB functionality into the DMZ,” said Rick Butler, chief engineer for Raytheon Information Security Solutions, in a statement. “This opens several new deployment scenarios to us, and reduces our SOA implementation cost and complexity.”

Sun Microsystems’ Marshall Choy, senior group manager, Engineered Solutions Group said the integration of the Sun, Oracle and Layer 7 technologies  will also provide an efficient, streamlined way for them to manage enterprise SOA.

Frank Kenney, Gartner Group research director, said gateways appliances can help enterprises more easily deploy SOA, Web 2.0 and cloud service infrastructures. Further, such integration appliances may prove a crucial part of providing end-to-end governance,  allowing companies to improve and enforce security, performance and availability policies.
