Red Hat, Inc. has introduced Red Hat 3scale API Management as a fully containerized, on-premise offering for end-to-end API lifecycle management. The on-premise release builds on the existing cloud-based SaaS offering and expands the deployment options available for the platform, providing organizations with a more powerful and flexible solution for managing application programming interfaces (APIs) at scale within their own datacenter.
As the first major release of the platform following Red Hat's June 2016 acquisition of 3scale, Red Hat 3scale API Management – On Premise builds on Red Hat's vision to accelerate digital transformation and innovation with API-driven hybrid cloud architectures. Described as the “new language of collaboration,” APIs serve as the building blocks underpinning today's hyperconnected economy, driven by mobile, the Internet of Things (IoT), and new application architectures such as containers and microservices.
Deploying Red Hat 3scale API Management on-premise via Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform enables customers to effectively manage the full lifecycle of their APIs without having to expose services externally, providing greater security and control to help meet regulatory requirements—all while taking advantage of powerful configuration, deployment, and administration capabilities for DevOps.
Named a leader in Gartner's 2016 Magic Quadrant for Full Lifecycle API Management, Red Hat 3scale API Management provides the API-based architecture needed to support an agile integration approach for modern application development, alongside containers and distributed integration capabilities.
