Layer7 API Management Scalability

Ewan Sadie
API Technical Lead at Sanlam
Up until now, we have not hit scaling issues with what we have. It was difficult to determine the initial requirements purely because of the complexity of our business. As a federated business, each business has could opt to go their own route. Luckily for us, the adoption was very good and we had a good uptake by all the different business units. View full review »

CA API Management is okay when it comes to supporting a large number of APIs or large number of transactions. It has high availability. With the help of a load balancer, we distribute the load among all the API Gateways. In this way, we provide high-availability for all the API Gateways. We have scaled the product out to different countries, like China and Australia. View full review »

Because we have a physical appliance, we have the capacity with us, but scalability is going to be hard. Our next strategy is for us to figure out if we can use virtual gateways instead of an appliance gateway and then scale horizontally. As for end users, we have a lot of them. About 200,000-300,000 users have downloaded the application and use it externally. As far as maintaining here locally, it's a team of 5 people. We are growing. I'm the main implementation architect on the support of it. Now, we have a policy development team, an enterprise architecture team and a performance testing team. Each one of them from their team lend out to us whenever we need it. I would say we're probably 20 to 30 percent of people have been using it within our organization. We still have a lot of room to go. View full review »

We didn't take it to scale, but from what I've read and from the literature that was provided to me, it seems that it's built for large transactional orders. View full review »

Scalability is really good because it's very easy to create new users. It's really good. There are 43 people using CA. We will use CA to its maximum capacity. It has become very popular in my office. View full review »

The scalability is always an issue, as we cannot add gateways on the fly because there are a lot of moving parts; endpoint connectivity is one of them. If we add more nodes then the rate-limiting feature is affected. This kind of gateway always has the scalability issue. But, I think CA is coming up with its Microgateway, which is in Beta. If they stabilize their Microgateway platform, we could do very well in terms of scalability. View full review »

Layer7 API Developer at Allied Globetech
Scalability is a bit tough if it is a production environment. If you are planning to scale it and increase the number of servers within one to two years, that can be challenging. Up until now, if I have installed four servers, I haven't been given requirements to add more than that. View full review »

In terms of scalability, we haven't encountered any issues. Scalability has been something that we're starting to explore a little bit more now - automated scalability - responding to increases in capacity in the environment. But we haven't had any issues, and I don't necessarily anticipate any issues. CA provides certain containerized versions of their components that are very easy to deploy and scale. View full review »

Rogerio Sachett
Consultor de seguran├ža at a tech services company with 1-10 employees
We don't have any problems with scalability. We have only a few customers that have deployed it. We only use it for a total of 4 clients. We don't use it in all of our projects. We work with other technology. Our final customer maintains the CA API Management installation and only needs our contractors to make other new improvements. View full review »

Technical Director at SoftPro
The scalability is good. When it comes to supporting a large number of APIs or transactions, the performance is not bad, because it is in staging. We have not moved it to production. Our client's environment has four CA API Gateways. View full review »

There is no real problem. However, as the number of instances increases, its complexity of installation increases if you do not use the OVA. View full review »
