CA Technologies has launched new solutions and capabilities within its API Management portfolio to help developers, enterprise architects and digital leaders create and deploy microservices – and manage the APIs that connect and orchestrate microservices to build modern application architectures.
The latest solutions include:
* Expanded capabilities of CA Live API Creator to quickly, effectively and independently create, deploy and run microservices.
* Docker container deployment options across many products within the API Management portfolio for end-to-end support in microservices architectures.
* Expanded API Management portfolio integrations to address management, security and advanced monitoring of APIs for modern architectures in any enterprise or cloud environment.
“Successful digital businesses require a modern application architecture to accelerate development, open new business opportunities and innovate faster,” says Michael Brink, CA Southern Africa solution strategist. “CA provides one of the broadest portfolio of microservices and API management solutions – from design and development to deployment and management – supporting application agility and scale for competitive advantage.”
The ability to create and manage microservices deployed using container-based technology is required in today’s modern application architecture. CA supports Docker(r) container-based deployment of CA Live API Creator and CA API Gateway for microservices creation, security and management.
CA also has expanded its powerful, yet easy point-and-click solution, CA Live API Creator, to quickly produce comprehensive microservices incorporating data, logic and robust APIs.
In addition, the new CA Microgateway, currently available in beta, helps enforce local policies for microservices, such as service discovery, routing, last mile security and rate limiting.
CA’s newly architected CA API Developer Portal gives organizations the flexibility to manage APIs wherever and however they want – on-premises, hybrid or cloud – with the ability to switch among them seamlessly. The containerized, API-first architecture eases deployment and migration to the cloud, and simplifies management, policy configuration and integration with existing analytics and content management system investments.
New capabilities and integration between CA Mobile API Gateway and CA Advanced Authentication accelerate the development of mobile security while delivering risk-based security from the mobile app to the API. A new, unified mobile SDK helps developers easily integrate authentication requirements while maintaining a streamlined experience for end users.
In addition, CA APM integration with CA API Management provides visibility into API and app performance metrics with transaction tracing for precise triangulation and resolution of performance issues.
