IBM buys XML appliance maker | CNET News.com

IBM buys XML appliance maker | CNET News.com: "IBM said it intends to offer a line of service-oriented architecture (SOA) appliances based on the DataPower products. SOAs are modular systems that rely on standards--notably Web services and XML--to be more flexible and cost-effective.
The move to acquire 6-year-old DataPower follows Intel's purchase this year of Sarvega, another XML appliance vendor. In June, IBM partner Cisco stepped into the same market with the introduction of its Application-Oriented Networking (AON) product line. "
