SANTA CLARA, Calif., Nov. 24 -- Sonoa Systems Inc., an innovative provider of secure cloud gateways, today announced outstanding results in the management and governance of SAP solution-based deployments of Web services, based on recent tests conducted in the SAP Co-Innovation Lab. Tested in a high-scale, SAP solution-based environment, Sonoa's ServiceNet accelerates the policy enforcement and processing of large message sizes demanded by SAP enterprise services, combining the functionalities of service-oriented architecture (SOA) governance and traffic management into a single, high-performance device. Test results demonstrated that Sonoa's network-router-like approach provides high scalability in service performance, avoiding the introduction of latency or single points of failure to improve reliability.
The SAP Co-Innovation Lab offers a hands-on environment for SAP, its customers and partners to collaboratively innovate, accelerate and showcase new business solutions and technologies. Via the best practices and integrated solutions developed in the lab, customers benefit from reduced integration costs and faster innovation cycles while gaining a new generation of highly agile and adaptable solutions.
Sonoa is working closely with SAP at the lab to demonstrate how its products, including Sonoa's ServiceNet, integrate with SOA governance solutions and SAP solutions, safeguarding consistent security policy enforcement, compliance, change management and increased performance. A stress test lasting more than six hours conducted in the SAP Co-Innovation Lab concluded that Sonoa added very little to zero latency while performing intelligent policy enforcement for a group of SAP enterprise services that conduct more than 20,000 sales order and quote history look-ups per hour with each response message containing 100 line items. In the test, more than 40,000 sales orders and quote history look-up Web services were called per hour. Additional benefits demonstrated included visibility into SAP solution-based service traffic, resulting in better decision-making while lowering the cost of operations and streamlining data center resources.
"Our customers are seeing many business benefits from adopting SOA and using SAP's enterprise services. They also value the greater operational visibility and control of SOA-based applications, such as effective run-time policy enforcement and SLA management," said Scott Campbell, vice president of the Co-Innovation Labs Network at SAP. "We've worked closely with Sonoa in the SAP Co-Innovation Lab to create real-world scenarios and evaluate and enhance Sonoa's ability to optimize the run-time management capabilities for SAP enterprise services. This cooperation with Sonoa in the lab underscores the significant benefits of SAP's customer-focused ecosystem -- delivering innovative solutions and greater combined value for our mutual customers."
"Companies have a significant challenge to overcome when trying to integrate SOA management solutions, especially in a heterogeneous SOA environment," said Chet Kapoor, CEO of Sonoa Systems. "ServiceNet, when integrated with SAP applications, combines the functionalities of SOA governance and traffic management into a single high-performance device. We're excited about the results of the testing at the SAP Co-Innovation Lab testing and pleased to be working closely with SAP."
