IBM Cast Iron

Short for IBM WebSphere Cast Iron Cloud Integration, IBM Cast Iron is an offering from IBM that provides clients with a platform for integrating cloud-based applications from leading SaaS providers with on-premise applications from IBM and other companies. IBM acquired Cast Iron Systems in 2010 and debuted the WebSphere Cast Iron Cloud Integration offering shortly thereafter. IBM Cast Iron projects can be deployed using a physical appliance (WebSphere DataPower Cast Iron Appliance XH40), a virtual appliance (WebSphere Cast Iron Hypervisor Edition) or a full cloud service (IBM Cast Iron Cloud).
