    IBM® offers two elastic caching options: IBM WebSphere® eXtreme Scale and the IBM WebSphere DataPower® XC10 appliance. Although WebSphere eXtreme Scale provides the ultimate flexibility across a broad range of caching scenarios, the WebSphere DataPower XC10 appliance is built for simple, drop-in caching scenarios that require few software configuration and application code changes to your existing environment.

    The WebSphere DataPower XC10 appliance can be fully operational within a couple of hours of being wheeled into your data center. Additionally, a single appliance provides 240 GB of “real” caching storage capacity which, optionally configured with a second appliance for high availability purposes, is sufficient for most enterprise requirements without the cost of the real storage required for WebSphere eXtreme Scale.

    This IBM Redpapers™ publication provides instructions on how to integrate, configure, and monitor session HTTP sessions from WebSphere Portal in a DataPower XC10 data grid. This paper discusses the common use cases for introducing a DataPower XC10 solution into a WebSphere Portal architecture.

    The paper is designed for current and potential users of WebSphere Portal who want to add the DataPower XC10 appliance caching option to their configuration.
