Announcing the Latest Apigee Edge Installer for PCF

Now available with offline installation capability and more

With proven product-level integrations, Apigee and Pivotal Cloud Foundry (PCF) have helped enterprises boost the consumption of their applications and microservices, modernize legacy systems, and chart a smoother path to cloud migration.

Today we’re excited to strengthen our partnership even more by announcing the general availability of Apigee Edge BOSH Installer for PCF for our Private Cloud 4.18.05 version. This is the latest BOSH installer that Apigee has released and marks another important step in our relationship with Pivotal.  

Operators who deploy PCF use BOSH to install, manage, and maintain it (BOSH is an open-source project that unifies release engineering, deployment, and lifecycle management of cloud software). The latest installer makes it simple for operators to do the same for Apigee Edge Private Cloud 4.18.05. The new release is built to further simplify user experience and provide self-service functionality. 

Offline installation

A key feature of the new release is offline install, which enables operators to install Apigee Edge VMs even without internet connectivity. The new installer enables you to specify a custom repo URL so that it can resolve CentOS and EPEL dependencies required to install Apigee Edge. You can find more details here.

Latest CentOS 7 stem cells support

This release also supports the latest CentOS 7 stem cells (version 3586). Stem cells are customized operating system images containing the filesystem for BOSH-managed VMs.

PCF 2.1 and 2.2 support

The latest release also supports PCF 2.1 and 2.2. Customers running 4.17.09 Edge installer tile on PCF 1.10 or 1.11 should first upgrade to PCF 2.1 or 2.2 and then upgrade the tile to 18.05.01. Details of the upgrade procedure can be found here.

JSON Web Tokens (JWT)

The JWT policies enable Edge API proxies to generate, validate, and decode JWT tokens, which are commonly used to share claims or assertions between connected applications.

Unified Apigee Edge experience (beta)

The unified Apigee Edge experience, now in beta, improves API lifecycle management, from API design and development to publishing.

Postgres upgrades to latest version (9.6)

Postgres 9.6 enables parallel query processing and improves analytics performance.

Give it a try!

The Apigee Edge Installer for Pivotal CF is available as a tile on the Pivotal Network.

This new release can simplify your Apigee Edge deployment, management, and maintenance experience (please note that we've retired the monitoring dashboard and API BaaS in this latest BOSH release). 

All you need is an account on the Pivotal Network (to download the tile) and your Apigee Edge license file (you can get it from your Apigee account team). Please check out  the full documentation and release notes, and visit Apigee Community with any questions or feedback.


Demo: Apigee Integrations for Pivotal Cloud Foundry

We recently announced the release of version 3.0.0 of Apigee Service Broker for Pivotal Cloud Foundry to ensure that the Apigee Service Broker stays up to date and continues to provide a seamless user experience.

Prior to this release, the Apigee Service Broker for Pivotal CF supported two different plans: the org plan and the microgateway plan. In the latest version, we’ve included something new—a microgateway-coresident plan—for deploying the microgateway inside Cloud Foundry apps to provide integrated API management.

In this detailed demo, we help you leverage our integrations with PCF. Check it out!
