One of the cool features of Intel® SOA Expressway is its ability to easily handle token bridging with just a few clicks. What is token bridging you ask? With the increased need for Enterprises to talk outside their perimeter to other Enterprises or cloud services, we need an easy way to morph message level credentials into the proper form as they move across the dynamic perimeter of the Enterprise.
The way SOA implementations are being implemented today, there's a new demand for middleware component that provides necessary services such as high-speed message level parsing, validation, transformation and translation to different message formats, message-level routing, service management, governance and control. Intel’s high-performance software solution is uniquely positioned to offer variety of such services critical in implementing true SOA.
Intel's working definition of SOA is that it is a design practice with a strong technology focus, especially on XML, virtualization, manageability (governance), and multi-core processing. Intel SOA Expressway is a core constituent of Intel's approach for implementing Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) in an enterprise. With the emerging trend of XML and Web Services, it is critical to define best practices and design principles behind SOA that address the evolving requirements of modern data center and to align the software architecture with data center architecture.
