This course teaches students the skills they need to configure and deploy systems that use the WebSphere DataPower Option for Application Optimization.
WebSphere DataPower Option for Application Optimization provides self-balancing and intelligent load distribution features. It is supported on WebSphere DataPower XML Security Gateway XS40 and WebSphere DataPower Integration Appliance XI50.
This course begins by introducing the concept of Application Optimization (AO), and how it is implemented in the WebSphere DataPower SOA Appliances. Students learn where the Option for Application Optimization applies in a typical DataPower topology, and how the feature is deployed to WebSphere DataPower SOA Appliances.
The course then provides an in-depth look at how to configure the self-balancing features that enable two or more DataPower appliances to distribute load among themselves. Students also get an in-depth look at the Intelligent Load Distribution features that provide load balancing capabilities to back-end WebSphere Application Server Network Deployment (ND) and Virtual Enterprise (VE) and non-WebSphere environments.
This intermediate course is for integration developers and system administrators who use the WebSphere DataPower XML Security Gateway XS40 and WebSphere DataPower Integration Appliance XI50.
You should have basic knowledge of configuration and administration of a DataPower appliance. This knowledge can be gained by attending one of the following courses:
