Edge Microgateway: Hybrid Cloud API Management
We're pleased to announce a new version of Apigee Edge Microgateway, a lightweight solution that enables enterprises to manage their APIs in a hybrid deployment.
API traffic flows through a gateway running close to the application while being managed centrally through Apigee Edge, which enables organizations to securely deliver and manage APIs, with agility at scale. Customers use Microgateway (which we released in limited availability back in July) to manage their internal APIs/microservices.
The first release had the following features:
- Authentication and authorization using OAuth 2.0 protocols
- Spike arrest
Customers appreciated its simplicity and ease of installation, but also said it lacked a few features that would help them really get the most out of it. So we incorporated their feedback and released a new 1.1.0 version, with the following new features:
- Authentication and authorization using simple API keys
- Plugin support that enables custom code in Node.js for both request and response paths
- Ease of installation, such that it takes one command and less than a minute to get started
We now have a lightweight but powerful gateway for API management in a hybrid cloud environment. Microgateway is available for all Edge Startup, Edge SMB, and Edge Enterprise customers. Please visit our community forum to discuss your use cases or ask questions.
