Oracle API Platform Cloud Service Valuable Features

The linkage to Apiary and the validation between the API documentation and the resource endpoints has ensured our documentation and implementation stay aligned. There is an API Gateway for which all runtime traffic routes through to access the API endpoints. The fact that this gateway can be deployed on-premise is an important feature for our financial services projects. The Call Home pattern that the gateway employs allows the security team to be comfortable with the link between the on-premise runtime and the cloud definition of the policies. View full review »

Oracle's APIP CS is a platform capable for consistently covering the complete API Lifecycle from design to retirement, supporting an API-first approach. The platform provides a strong and intuitive API Design platform, which allows the collaborative creation of new API Designs in an efficient API-first manner. Furthermore, APIP CS provides a lightweight, flexible architecture and offers a hybrid deployment model, where the API Gateway components can be installed either to Oracle Cloud, third-party cloud providers (Amazon, Azure), or On-Premises. This allows the creation of very flexible, agile API-driven architectures. This Micro Gateway approach, is especially valuable in Microservices architectures. The Gateways are communicating with a Management Service, which lives in the Cloud, to send usage information or to fetch changes for the deployed APIs. The advantage of this "Calling home" mechanism is that there's no need to define firewall exceptions, since it is an outbound communication. APIP CS Management Service is a cloud-based application, running only on Oracle Cloud. The Management Service has been built following the API-first principal and is a cloud-native application. The corresponding UIs (Management Portal, API Catalog) are very intuitive and therefore easy-to-use. The implementation and management of new APIs is straightforward. There is not a high learning curve. View full review »

Neutrality of where you can deploy a gateway. I have had gateways running in AWS and on-premises running the same API policies. Deployment is pretty easy once you understand what the configuration properties do. The ease by which you can define policies to manage is impressive. View full review »
