3scale’s nginx-based API Gateway Now Available As Docker Image On Red Hat OpenShift

May 23rd, 2016 |

We are happy to announce the 3scale nginx-based API Gateway is now available as a Docker image on the Red Hat OpenShift PaaS solution. Customers using OpenShift can easily deploy the 3scale API Gateway with a few clicks and leverage multiple additional benefits of this PaaS. Now, any application written on OpenShift can automatically scale up based on demand and can easily be moved to another environment that supports the same languages, preventing vendor dependency and freeing customers from lock-in.

OpenShift is an open source, enterprise-class platform-as-a-service (PaaS) with community and development leadership provided by Red Hat. OpenShift allows application developers to automate hosting, configuration, deployment, and administration for whole application stacks in an elastic cloud environment that scales based on demand. Since OpenShift supports Docker containers and Kubernetes orchestration, it also supports microservices efforts. This comb…

New Stormpath Integration Simplifies Adoption Of OAuth Authentication Flow

May 3rd, 2016 |

Modern app development made easier with 3scale and Stormpath

We’re happy to announce we’ve added a new integration for Stormpath, available for all 3scale plans starting today, which simplifies adoption of the complicated OAuth authentication flow. Our partnership with Stormpath provides complete identity management for 3scale customers and brings radical simplicity to modern app development. 3scale continues to be the best platform on which to build OAuth-powered APIs.

The integration is a powerful tool for any API provider who needs identity management. Stormpath is a …

New Amazon API Gateway Integration with the 3scale API Management Platform

October 5th, 2015 |

Leverage the Benefits of Both Products

Amazon’s recent launch of the Amazon API Gateway is a clear indication that the idea of opening up access to digital assets through APIs – and using API management to gain visibility and control – is becoming more and more mainstream. As companies think about cloud strategies, they increasingly need to think about API strategies, too. The Amazon API Gateway and the 3scale API Management Platform are two very different but complementary products. We took a close look at the Amazon API Gateway and implemented an integration with the 3scale API Management product to give API providers the best of both worlds.

The Amazon API Gateway represents a classic API gateway, providing a controllable access point for API services. As such, the Amazon API…

Streaming APIs and the Internet of Things

September 29th, 2015 |

In a recent study, the McKinsey Global Institute concluded that the Internet of Things (IOT) has an economic potential of up to $11.1 trillion a year by 2025. APIs – specifically streaming APIs – enable the IOT vision to become reality. The addition of a real-time streaming proxy and an API management solution addresses some of the unique challenges of these streaming APIs and makes a great combination for any IOT-based enterprise.

Why streaming APIs for the IOT? Some of the so-far-so-good Web technologies in use to support the IOT are quickly becoming too inefficient. The reason? Most of them use HTTP as the protocol transport. By definition HTTP is half-duplex and can only deliver full duplex, real-time communications such as the ones required to monitor real world events at the cost of a higher latency and increased network traffic.

Anticipating the need for better midd…
