Challenges with governing SOA ServiceNet enforces SOA governance with a policy-driven Service-based applications are composed of disparate components approach for security and access control, traffic management on heterogeneous platforms that evolve and change independently. (e.g., client-specific rate limiting), service mediations (e.g., protocol They are often owned and managed by different development and credential mapping), and performance and uptime. With teams. This highly distributed model for SOA (Service-oriented ServiceNet, development and operations teams can: Architecture) presents unique management and governance challenges. How can teams provide: • Create, provision, and enforce a broad array of policies. • Store and manage policies in a repository such as HP Systinet™. • Security and performance without control over service • Monitor, log, and publish statistics for services and policies. consumers or providers? • Priority service to business-critical transactions among A purpose-built appliance and complete solution competing interests? ServiceNet is a network device using a hardware-proxy approach • Change management without ripples that cripple the business? optimized for XML stream processing for non-intrusive policy • Consistent security policy enforcement, controls, and enforcement. The appliance can handle up to ten times more compliance across shared services? message volume and throughput than software-based solutions, • Performance, latency, and scalability when one business with extremely low latency. ServiceNet uses a flexible, powerful transaction results in dozens of service messages? policy model for implementing both crosscutting and client-specific policies with configuration, not code. SOA governance solutions SOA governance is the creation and administration of policies ServiceNet offers all the functionality for securing, controlling, that align with business objectives to ensure security, reliability, monitoring, and managing SOA-based application deployments, and service quality. Policy authoring, consistent enforcement, including a browser-based administration and monitoring tool, an and lifecycle management are critical to ensure compliance with Eclipse-based development tool for custom policy development, governance requirements. A successful SOA governance solution and an optional management server for clustered deployments. must enforce policies at wire-speed with extremely low latency.
