(updated: 2 july 2009) As I do SOA projects for a few years, many users are just entering this service oriented architecture world.

Integration migrates to the cloud | Software as Services Integration vendor Cast Iron, which for years has offered its product packaged as a hardware appliance, this week unveiled a cloud-native integration service. The introduction of Cast Iron Cloud is the culmination of a transition begun earlier this year when Cast Iron began offering cloud hosting of its upgraded appliance product. Customers can now choose between an on-premise appliance, a dedicated cloud-hosted appliance or the multi-tenant cloud service. Organizations that still have a lot of their own server infrastructure will continue to opt for the on-premise appliance, VP of product marketing Chandar Pattabhiram told me in a briefing last week. The cloud service has been created to serve what Cast Iron sees as a growing market of 'SaaS-centric' organizations — mostly smaller businesses — that use several different cloud services and have little or no servers in-house.
