Apigee Releases Hybrid Cloud API Management Platform on Pivotal Cloud Foundry
|Stuart Parkerson in API Friday, August 5, 2016|
Apigee has announced that the Microgateway capability in the Apigee Edge API management software is now supported by Pivotal Cloud Foundry, helping developers use Apigee’s API management software to share, monitor and secure APIs and microservices for applications developed with Pivotal’s cloud native platform. The release will help developers deal with the complexity of a microservices architecture and the management of microservices when dealing with large scale inter-microservices communication.
The Apigee Edge Microgateway provides the ability for IT teams to enhance the performance, availability and capacity of their API systems by providing a hybrid cloud deployment option for the Apigee Edge API management platform.
The Apigee Edge Microgateway architecture delivers security and features such as spike arrest, quota, and analytics, but with a smaller footprint than the full Apigee Edge platform. It can also help simplify deployment, reduce latency, and improve the performance of API programs powered by Apigee Edge software.
While Pivotal Cloud Foundry already provides tools for developers to build and deploy APIs and microservices, the integration of the Apigee Edge Microgateway solution provides an enhanced ability to share and monitor APIs and microservices. It provides developers with uniform access control and traffic management, as well as automatically collecting the data surrounding the APIs and microservices to make it available in Apigee Edge.
In addition to gaining more visibility into the health and security of APIs, this latest enhancement to the Pivotal-Apigee integration also provides developers with insights into APIs being exposed to other apps within Pivotal Cloud Foundry.
The Apigee Edge Microgateway capability integrated with Pivotal Cloud Foundry is available today for Apigee-Pivotal joint customers. It will be more widely available later this year.
