I’ll be delivering a Webinar next week about Layer 7’s Enterprise Service Manager (ESM) product. ESM offers the global view of clusters of SecureSpan Gateways and the services under their management. It’s functions fall into three main areas:
- Centrally manage and monitor all Gateways and associated services across the extended enterprise and into the cloud
Automated Policy Migration
- Centrally approve and then push policy to any Gateway across the enterprise, automatically resolving environmental discrepancies
- Remotely manage, troubleshoot, backup and restore all Gateways, supporting full disaster recovery
ESM is an important tool for managing SOA in the Enterprise, but it also plays a critical role when SOA moves to the cloud. In addition to extending an organization’s visibility and control, ESM provides critical tools for automating the migration of policy to new environments:
I’ll go into this process in detail in the webinar. Hope to see you there. Here is the official abstract:
Organizations have begun extending their SOA initiatives beyond traditional enterprise boundaries to encompass third-party, geographically remote, and even cloud-based resources. As a result, the complexity associated with migrating applications across these environments (for example, from development in India to test in the cloud to production in a hosted data center) has increased exponentially. In this webinar from Layer 7, you will learn how topology and identity issues between environments, geographies and settings (i.e., enterprise vs. cloud) can be easily resolved and even automated, dramatically reducing migration risk.
