Progress Software Establishes 1000 Node Scalability as Standard for SOA Management

<p>New Release Keeps Rapidly Multiplying Services From Breaking Unprepared Systems</p>
<p>Progress Software Corporation (NASDAQ: PRGS), a provider of leading application infrastructure software to develop, deploy, integrate and manage business applications, today launched release 7.0 of its Progress® Actional® SOA management platform and with it a warning to IT professionals that they should plan for a minimum of 1,000 nodes consuming services within their SOA.</p>
<p>“Many organizations believe they have a small number of services,” said Dan Foody, vice president, Actional products, at Progress, “however, they usually only know of a limited subset of the ones built in-house, and often turn a blind eye to the vast number of services that are provided by packaged and software-as-a-service applications. Worse yet, the number of consumers of these services can easily be an order of magnitude greater still – and they all need to be managed. Only Actional can scale effectively to manage what will increasingly be the standard in the enterprise – hundreds or thousands of services.”</p>
<p>“In our growing SOA environment we have nearly 100 services deployed today and far greater numbers of service consumers, all of which have to be managed,” said David Schwartz, IT manager, Integration Services, University of Phoenix, a subsidiary of Apollo Group, “Actional provides the visibility to understand and manage all these service interactions, which helps us operate our SOA infrastructure more efficiently, particularly when issues occur.”</p>
<p>Actional is the first and only SOA management platform proven to be scalable to more than 1,000 nodes per management server without performance degradation. Actional delivers this degree of scalability by distributing management processing through the network; providing high performance, automatic message correlation; and processing messages without resorting to costly traditional parsing techniques.
The Progress Actional product family includes Progress Actional for SOA Operations, Progress Actional for Continuous Service Optimization and Progress Actional for Active Policy Enforcement.
