API Gateway (OAG) : Concept & marriage with SOA & Mobile by Sudipto Desmukh

clip_image002

Oracle API Gateway is a standards-based, policy-driven, standalone software security solution that provides first line of defense in Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA) environments.

It enables organizations to securely and rapidly adopt Cloud, Mobile and SOA Services by bridging the gaps and managing the interactions between all relevant systems.

Oracle Web Services Manager(OWSM) is generally used for application security of a particular service,most customers have any use cases around DMZ or Perimeter Security for Web Services. This product serves as a part of the enterprise security solution.

This would be typically for customers needing access to web services from the internet, similar to how we access a web application. OAG can do a  lot of validations
and route the requests only once those checks have passed. This may also be a typical use case for Mobile Applications which use REST Web Services at the backend.

I have seen a strong value in this security product for all SOA and Mobile projects.

Here’s a high-level request flow :

There are many advantages that OAG can provide :

–   Authentication, Authorization (Leverages existing LDAP like AD ; existing IDM platforms for this – RSA AM, CA Site Minder, Oracle Access Mgr) Read the complete article here.

Finance private cloud solutions at your customers

clip_image002

Create Competitive Advantage with Financing

Summary: Midsize accounts are often the most price sensitive customers, and software financing is the best sales tool for increasing solution affordability and removing closing obstacles related to budgetary, accounting treatment or internal approval issues.
Take Action: Create competitive advantage with software financing and leasing by selling a pricing and payment structure that differentiates your solution. As a best practice, proactively offer a financing proposal and create a competitive trap.

Partner can use financing to:

  • match solution cost to project deployment and ROI stream
  • create an operating expense solution
  • change an account’s internal approval path
  • spread the partner’s implementation fees

CloudPatterns.org by Thomas Erl

Are you using the SOA Patterns.org? Thanks to Thomas and team Cloud Patterns.org become now available!

clip_image002CloudPatterns.org is a community site dedicated to documenting a master patterns catalog comprised of design patterns that capture and modularize technology-centric solutions distinct or relevant to modern-day cloud computing platforms and business-centric cloud technology architectures. Part of this catalog is comprised of compound patterns that tackle contemporary cloud delivery and deployment models (such as public cloud, IaaS, etc.) and decompose them into sets of co-existent patterns that establish core and optional feature sets provided by these environments.

Cloud computing patterns are applied via the implementation of individual or combinations of different technology mechanisms. Together, the documentation of patterns and mechanisms provides an extremely concrete view of cloud architecture layers and the individual building blocks that represent the moving parts that can be assembled in creative ways to leverage cloud environments for business automation. Each design pattern in the cloud computing catalog is associated with one or more mechanisms.

To further learn about design patterns, compound patterns, and mechanisms, visit these overview pages.

Here is a summary of how design patterns, compound patterns, and mechanisms related to each other:

  • Mechanisms represent technology artifacts that can be combined to form cloud technology architectures.
  • Design patterns represent proven solutions to common problems.
  • Cloud computing design patterns are (partially or entirely) applied by implementing different combinations of cloud computing mechanisms.
  • Compound patterns are comprised of specific combinations of core (required) and extension (optional) member patterns. Get the Cloud Patterns here.
