Announcing Intel(R) Expressway API Manager

We are announcing today the availability of a new product called Intel(R) Expressway API Manager, which we call a composite API platform. What we’ve done here is integrated the Expressway Service Gateway with the developer portal and developer management features from API management market leader Mashery!

Composite API Platform

The solution is a composite because it’s ideal for large enterprises who want a hardened security gateway on-premise but also want the cost savings of a SaaS cloud for developer registration, sign-up and management. Further, Mashery has the benefit of experience, as they have been ‘doing’ API management since about 2006; their product is highly mature and a great match for Expressway.

Both teams are very excited about the new offering. Let’s highlight some of the features:

  • It’s an Intel product sold and supported by Intel. We think this is important for Enterprises that want to make an investment in API management from a large vendor
  • Intel customers get access to all gateway features including: RESTful service enablement, service orchestration, composition, provisioning, all authentication features, protocol and data format mediation, trust and threat processing, SLA management and API rate limiting.
  • A new API console provided by Intel allows you to manage gateway services as APIs
  • Intel customers also get a subscription to the Mashery cloud for developer on-boarding, registration, portal administration, content management system, community tools and developer enablement tools
  • Mashery and the Intel Gateway are fully integrated for access control, basic policies and analytics, with more integration planned for the future. This means Intel customers can use Mashery for developer registration, key generation, and provisioning API rate limits

We wanted a solution that would address large Enterprise requirements which often require “on-prem” traffic processing using a certified gateway but still offer the advantages of a SaaS cloud for evangelizing APIs to internal or external developers or business partners.

Using new techniques of information modeling, indexing, and processing, new cloud-based systems can support cloud-based workloads previously not possible for high-throughput insurance, banking, and case-based applications. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, John Newton, CTO, Founder and Chairman of Alfresco, described how to scale cloud-based content management repositories to store, manage, and retrieve billions of documents and related information with fast and linear scalability. He addressed the challenges of scaling document repositories to this level; architectural approaches for coordinating data; search and storage technologies, Solr, and Amazon storage and database technologies; the breadth of use cases that modern content systems need to support; how to support user applications that require subsecond response times.

Poor data quality and analytics drive down business value. In fact, Gartner estimated that the average financial impact of poor data quality on organizations is $9.7 million per year. But bad data is much more than a cost center. By eroding trust in information, analytics and the business decisions based on these, it is a serious impediment to digital transformation.
With more than 30 Kubernetes solutions in the marketplace, it's tempting to think Kubernetes and the vendor ecosystem has solved the problem of operationalizing containers at scale or of automatically managing the elasticity of the underlying infrastructure that these solutions need to be truly scalable. Far from it. There are at least six major pain points that companies experience when they try to deploy and run Kubernetes in their complex environments. In this presentation, the speaker will detail these pain points and explain how cloud can address them.
Containers and Kubernetes allow for code portability across on-premise VMs, bare metal, or multiple cloud provider environments. Yet, despite this portability promise, developers may include configuration and application definitions that constrain or even eliminate application portability. In this session we'll describe best practices for "configuration as code" in a Kubernetes environment. We will demonstrate how a properly constructed containerized app can be deployed to both Amazon and Azure using the Kublr platform, and how Kubernetes objects, such as persistent volumes, ingress rules, and services, can be used to abstract from the infrastructure.
