SOA Trends

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. This has created demand for additional middleware components that provide necessary services such as high-performance message parsing, validation, transformation and translation to different message formats, message-level routing, service management, governance and control.

Intel SOA Expressway is bridging the gaps between emerging datacenter trends and the trends seen in SOA implementations. It presents in itself a unique software solution by offering simplified way to define coarse-grained services to tie together existing vertical applications and business units within and outside the enterprise boundary. It allows for creation of composite cross-domain services bus to implement a true SOA based solution comprised of re-usable service components that decouples definition, management and ongoing operation of enterprise service portfolio while leveraging benefits in security, performance and simplicity. In addition, with support for Hardware Virtualization, SOA Governance, and built-in optimizations for Intel Multi-core, Intel SOA Expressway offers unique capabilities in software form-factor to remove barriers in adopting SOA.

In my next blog post I will be talking more about the Intel SOA Expressway service patterns and the role it fulfills in enterprise SOA adoption.
