CA Technologies today announced new capabilities within its API Management portfolio in an attempt to help developers, enterprise architects and digital leaders create and deploy microservices—and manage the APIs that connect and orchestrate microservices to build application architectures. The latest features include:
- Expanded capabilities of CA Live API Creator to 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.
New Capabilities for Microservices Creation and Management
CA supports Docker container-based deployment of CA Live API Creator and CA API Gateway for microservices creation, security and management. CA also has expanded its point-and-click solution, CA Live API Creator, to produce microservices incorporating data, logic and 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.
Expanded API Management Capabilities Support Modern Application Architectures
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. The architecture attempts to ease 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 security from the mobile app to the API. A new mobile SDK helps developers integrate authentication requirements. 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.
