IBM DataPower Gateway

WebSphere DataPower Gateway is really beneficial if you are trying to integrate two or more systems. It provides you with comfort and peace of mind by creating a DMZ zone for the services which are going out of the intranet to hit external clients APIs. It is greatly recommended if you have a very high volume service or API which is being used by a majority of clients because it has a dedicated physical box present which takes care of memory, CPU and all such stuff. So, all your transactions happen at wire-speed.

Red Hat JBoss Fuse

RedHat Jboss Fuse can be used perfectly to solve application integration or microservices implementation at the departmental or enterprise level. The wide quantity of connectors it provides allows any application to be integrated. Specific technical and programming knowledge is required to build the interfaces, therefore it is not so appropriate for those companies that do not have these employee profiles.

Pros

IBM DataPower Gateway

  • The most obvious thing that DataPower does exceptionally well is security. All the built-in supported security capabilities allow us to isolate most security tasks to DataPower and as a result "protect" down steam services/systems to have to deal with security.
  • DataPower is very good at protocol conversion and as it is usually used on the edge allows you to narrow down the protocols used between the companies public and private networks.
  • The appliance concept makes maintenance, recovery and, management so much simpler.

Cons

IBM DataPower Gateway

  • The old interface is being really missed by our team as the new WebUI interface is not that intuitive or easy to work with. It takes a lot of time to load. There should be an inbuilt wizard for creating a Rest service as well like there is for an XML based service.
  • IBM support is very knowledgeable but it's not that easy to reach them. They don't release the fix patches very soon which also becomes a big issue in certain situations where critical projects are involved.
  • Lastly, DataPower has its steep learning curve and it requires time and effort on your end to gain full control and make the most of the advanced features which it offers. Finding the right resource in the market is not that easy.

Red Hat JBoss Fuse

RedHat JBoss Fuse has a strong user community, it's fully opensource and it's easy to license with world-class support. It also has strong integration with AMQP messaging system to bring much more control and visibility over integration patterns, messaging flows, and the overall system topology.

Return on Investment

IBM DataPower Gateway

  • It has really taken our business to the next level. We have expanded and integrated with so many new vendors and for all those integrations DataPower is serving as our security gateway.
  • We don't have to depend on any other tool for doing the load balancing of the incoming requests as that is also taken care inside the WebSphere DataPower Gateway box itself, thereby distributing the load equally.
  • It has made our platform much more secure, uniform and robust to deal with any kind of incoming message format or threat as well due to its latest security mechanisms and huge processing power.
