Overall Satisfaction with WebSphere Application Server

IBM WAS is used in BPM and other middleware OLTP applications. As a part of GBS, I support a customer where WAS is been used extensively for application.
  • Security-rich Java server runtime environment.
  • WebSphere ND - Extensive support to containers.
  • Is a perfect fit for B2B, B2C and B2B2C companies.
  • More suitable for DevOps Environment.
  • Easy Deployment from command line.
  • Minimize the fixpack levels.
  • ROI is difficult to materialize for short term with large deployments.
  • Clearly used to provide business continuity and suits all critical applications.
WAS is an IBM product and gels with IBM database product. So, we have decided to go with IBM WAS. WAS supports more data sources than Oracle web logic. So, ideally it can be used with multiple databases.
The support provided by WAS is excellent via PMR a.k.a IBM support and is based on ticketing basis. Broadly, the service is good for any critical production bugs and other relevant apar releases.
For a large enterprise, WAS is suitable for easy deployments and support.

IBM WAS is good in transaction processing and suited for large deployments and enterprises looking for a smooth application server with less hassles. IBM WAS is not suited for batch processing kind of workload to work better.
