"Good middleware design incorporates three key principles: precision to work well, tolerance to work with varying conditions, and strength to keep working under stress. WebSphere is designed to blend the precision needed to run your business efficiently, the tolerance needed to handle your specific computing requirements, and the strength needed to handle your largest workload demands."
—Rob High, Jr., WebSphere foundation, Chief Architect
