This IBM® Redbooks® publication focuses on operational and managerial aspects for DataPower® appliance deployments.
DataPower appliances provide functionality that crosses both functional and organizational boundaries, which introduces unique management and operational challenges.

This IBM Redbooks publication provides guidance at both a general and technical level for individuals who are responsible for planning, installation, development, and deployment. It is not intended to be a "how-to" guide, but rather to help educate you about the various options and methodologies that apply to DataPower appliances.
