API Microgateway

An API Gateway is the runtime component of the API ecosystem, which is used to enforce API governance policies. Usually, it continuously connects with other API management components, but in certain cases you’ll need to completely isolate API runtime traffic form API management traffic.

That’s where the WSO2 API Microgateway comes in.

WSO2 API Microgateway itself performs all the functionality without calling the other servers, which considerably reduces the average response time to serve an API call.

Hybrid API Gateway

API management is done in WSO2 API Cloud and the API runtime traffic is in the on-premise WSO2 API Manager

  • API development, policy enforcement and app development is done on WSO2 API Cloud
  • API gateway, API backend and API consumers are in the on-premise system
  • The API gateway is bootstrapped with APIs and API policies
  • API usage will periodically sync with WSO2 API Cloud
  • API analytics is done in WSO2 API Cloud

Lockdown API Gateway

The API runtime is in a network lockdown environment

  • API development, policy enforcement and app development can be on WSO2 API Cloud or on-premise
  • API gateway, API backend and API consumers are in the network lockdown environment
  • The API gateway is bootstrapped with APIs and API policies
  • API usage is collected in the local API gateways

Static API Gateway

Central API governance with system-to-system API runtime

  • API development, policy enforcement and app development can be on WSO2 API Cloud or on-premise
  • API gateway, API backend and API consumers are in the network lockdown environment
  • The API gateway is bootstrapped with APIs and API policies
  • API usage is collected in local API gateways
  • API changes are very minimal because of static APIs

API Gateway in Microservices Architecture

1. Centralized API Gateway

  • API development, policy enforcement and app development can be on WSO2 API Cloud or on-premise
  • API gateway cluster and microservices are in the same environment
  • The API gateway is bootstrapped with APIs and API policies
  • API usage is collected in local API gateways or periodically published

2. Private Jet API Gateway

  • API development, policy enforcement and app development can be on WSO2 API Cloud or on-premise
  • There is a dedicated API gateway per microservice in the same environment
  • The API gateway is bootstrapped with APIs and API policies
  • API usage is collected in local API gateways or periodically published

3. Sidecar API Gateway

  • API development, policy enforcement and app development can be on WSO2 API Cloud or on-premise
  • A dedicated API gateway is bundled as a sidecar with a microservice
  • The API gateway is bootstrapped with APIs and API policies
  • API usage is collected in the local API gateways
