The latest release delivers API Management foundation for Axway 5 Suite to help govern the flow of data across on premise, B2B, cloud and mobile deployments.
Axway has introduced its API Server 7.2 for the Axway 5 Suite, which hopes to combine a highly customisable API Developer Portal with a high-performance API Gateway.
Darryl Pollock, solution architect for TransGrid in New South Wales, a company that owns and manages one of the largest high voltage electricity transmission networks in Australia, said: "The Axway API Server is a key component of our next-generation Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) infrastructure, as it enables us to rapidly on-board new and existing customers and suppliers via a secure and highly-scalable API management layer.
"Through its security and protocol mediation capabilities, the Axway API Server has reduced our integration time-frames from weeks to days."
The Axway API Server enables organisations to develop, deploy, manage and secure APIs. Companies can transform existing application infrastructure into APIs for delivery using the API Server’s world-class API Gateway and Developer Portal. Enterprise-grade policies can be linked into identity management infrastructure including Microsoft Active Directory.
To be effective, API Management must span from the cloud to on-premise systems.
In the cloud, the API Developer Portal enables developers to subscribe to APIs listed in a convenient API Catalogue. The API Gateway then provides the bridge to on-premise SOA services. An elastic Amazon AMI deployment is available alongside a hardware appliance, virtual appliance and installable software options, providing the widest range of deployment options of any API Management vendor.
Key new capabilities of the API Server 7.2 include an API Catalogue, enterprise-class configuration management, Axway suite-wide identity and security, Native Amazon AMI with Elastic Load-Balancing, Axway 5 APIs and a solution pack framework.
