Creating a Scalable and Decentralized API Management Architecture with WSO2 API Manager

Tuesday, April 28, 2020
Webinar Slides

Centralized API management architecture is a common practice in any API management story. With the rapid growth of businesses, centralized API management has become challenging due to issues such as scalability, resource allocations per API, enforcing different security mechanisms, complex API mediations, API shaping, and grouping APIs.

A decentralized API management architecture solves all these concerns by enabling you to build a scalable architecture to handle millions of API requests. This solution is based on cloud native technologies for which we have introduced a Kubernetes API operator in WSO2 API Manager. You can use the Kubernetes API Operator to deploy APIs for individual microservices or compose several microservices into individual APIs.

This webinar will explore how you can create a scalable, decentralized API management architecture with WSO2 API Manager. By doing so, you can create an end-to-end solution for your entire business functionality — from microservices, to APIs, to end-user applications.

Discussion points include:

  • Moving from centralized to decentralized API management architecture
  • Key concepts in an decentralized API management architecture
  • Introduction to the Kubernetes API Operator
  • How to build a CI/CD flow on decentralized architecture
  • A live example demo
