Cisco announced the end-of-life for their ACE XML Gateway on August 1, 2010 with a last-ship-date of April 30, 2011 and support tapering off through January 2016.

The Vordel XML gateway has similar features to the IBM product. The main advantage with Vordel is that you can extend the product using real programming languages (not just XSLT!). It sold as either a hardware appliance or software (which is supported as either a physical or virtual installation).
