BEA Systems AquaLogic Data Services Platform 2.1

Designed to help application developers and SOA architects automate the service-enabling of their data to build composite software, such as Web applications and portals, this software now supports Microsoft Ado.Net. This lets users access and update data through the Ado.Net standard to multiple back-end data sources. The platform also supports the ALDSP 2.1 Audit Framework, which provides flexible auditing of events across sources for improved user-access control. The product's new operational monitoring support can capture metrics associated with data-services execution and let them be used for computing and tracking SLAs. $48,000 per CPU. www.bea.com
