SAN JOSE, Calif., Feb. 16, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Apigee® (NASDAQ:APIC), developer of an intelligent API platform for digital business, today announced a new reference architecture designed to make it easier for developers to use the richly featured Apigee Edge API management software on Amazon Web Services (AWS). The new reference architecture provides a resource that documents best practices for considerations such as security and performance when developing Apigee-powered applications using AWS services. It can be found here on the Apigee website.

“A large number of our enterprise customers expose AWS services through the Apigee Edge software, in order to take advantage of our comprehensive API management capabilities,” said Anant Jhingran, Apigee chief technology officer. “We want to make it insanely easy for developers to use Apigee software on a wide range of AWS SaaS services, and this reference architecture - which has been reviewed and validated by Amazon solution architects - captures many of the best practices gleaned from many Apigee-AWS deployments.”

Apigee’s flagship Apigee Edge API management software empowers organizations to securely deliver and manage APIs, with agility and at scale. Apigee Edge software delivers comprehensive API management that addresses the complete lifecycle of an API project – including both API exposure and consumption, as well as capabilities such as data transformation, caching and mediation, a portal for testing and documenting APIs, analytics, and monetization of APIs.

In conjunction with the AWS Lambda team, Apigee is also developing an open source plug-in to enable easier exposure of AWS Services on Apigee Edge software. AWS Lambda is a next-generation compute service, designed to offer high scalability and value. Apigee’s API Management integration with AWS Lambda will be available later in 2016.
