WSO2 and EmDev Launch WSO2 API Cloud in Russia

Hybrid API gateways are now available in the Yandex Cloud

Mountain View, CA, USA and Saint-Petersburg, Russia - June 11, 2020 - The adoption of software as a service (SaaS) based API management solutions are on the rise for its many benefits. WSO2, the world’s leading open source integration vendor, announced today that WSO2 API Cloud is now making their hybrid API gateways available in the Yandex Cloud. This is facilitated by EmDev, a WSO2 Value Added Reseller based in Russia. Developers are now able to run API gateways in the Yandex cloud, and these gateways run as containers in a Kubernetes infrastructure guaranteeing scalability and resilience. WSO2 has future plans to set up a replica of WSO2 API Cloud completely on Yandex Cloud, extending capabilities even further.

Strengthened Security and Reduced Network Overhead

WSO2 API Cloud is the public hosted version of WSO2 API Manager and it supports full lifecycle API management with API gateways available globally. Its strong hybrid API management capability enables enterprises to run API gateways at any preferred infrastructure.

Key advantages of hybrid API management include:

  • A hybrid API gateway enables you to keep APIs closer to your backend and this results in faster turnaround times.
  • Better security and support for complying with data protection policies as it prevents API payloads from traveling out of the designated region and enabling enterprises to implement API management projects while adhering to regional regulations.
  • Support multi-cloud strategies as enterprises can run API gateways anywhere, in any infrastructure service provider and infrastructure type.

“API management SaaS helps reduce operational costs, provides better return on investment, and furthermore, it's agility and scalability provide additional benefits to enterprises. These factors will only increase in importance as businesses rethink their digital transformation strategies and look for more cost-effective technology that will help them respond innovatively in the aftermath of our present situation,” said President, Integration Business at WSO2 Shevan Goonetilleke.

“This development reduces the costs associated with infrastructure, platform support, and application support. EmDev and WSO2 provide the required support through a single entry point. Importantly, cloud-based API management solutions enable digital transformation for both large organizations and small and mid-size enterprises (SMEs), facilitating their integration into the common information environment with minimal costs and without the need to build in-house competencies at the start of the project. Given that the facility is provided within the country itself, it helps the organizations to implement their projects while adhering to data protection laws,” said CEO of EmDev Alexey Kakunin.
