SOA Software and VMware to Enable Cloud Operation of Governance Platform

Company Becomes VMware Technology Alliance Partner

Los Angeles, CA. – May 29, 2012 – SOA Software, a leading provider of SOA governance, cloud and enterprise API management products, announced today that its products are easily deployed as VMware images, giving organizations the flexibility to quickly deploy and migrate governance solutions within and across their enterprise. In addition, SOA Software has become a VMware (NYSE:VMW) partner  participating in VMware’s Technology Alliance Program (TAP). SOA Software’s TAP qualification validates the successful deployment of all of its products on VMware vSphere virtual machines (VMs), the industry-leading virtualization platform for building cloud infrastructure.

“When governing web services and web APIs, you get great operating benefits from running your governance solution on the same virtual machines that power the cloud,” said Roberto Medrano, Executive Vice President of Marketing for SOA Software. “Of course, VMware is in a class by itself in the world of virtualization and cloud computing. Our products leverage this tremendous technical depth to bring the best SOA governance solution to the VMware customer base.”

Many customers are leveraging datacenter automation solutions to create an internal cloud operating model for dynamic scaling of their runtime environments. SOA Software’s Network Director is ideally suited for this type of deployment offering the ability to add and remove instances from clusters dynamically as needed.

SOA Software’s Portfolio Manager™, Repository Manager™, Policy Manager™, and Service Manager™ all run on VMware. These products are the heart of the company’s comprehensive Integrated SOA Governance Automation solution. This product set enables SOA governance, SOA security and SOA management across the complete service lifecycle, from planning through development and production deployment. The company’s approach ensures the security, reliability, performance and ease of development of service-oriented business applications. With SOA Software, you build the right services, build them the right way, and then assure that your services are behaving correctly. The products allow you to connect and control SOA platform components, including enterprise service buses (ESBs) from multiple vendors.

SOA Software’s latest solution is Atmosphere, which provides a secure, robust platform that companies can use to share their APIs with the growing developer community. Atmosphere manages, monitors and secures companies’ APIs, ensuring that they deliver the level of service customers and partners require; the security of corporate and customer information and assets; and the integrity of the corporate brand. Atmosphere also runs on VMware.

VMware TAP offers its 20,000 members access to extensive technical resources and licenses to integrate or test their products on VMware platforms. TAP partners also get access to go-to-market tools to promote their alliance and joint solutions with VMware to shared customers as well as prospects.
