SAN JOSE, Calif., May 12, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Apigee® (NASDAQ:APIC), developer of a leading API platform for digital business, today announced that dozens of companies signed on to use the Apigee Edge API management software on Amazon Web Services (AWS) in the first calendar quarter of 2016. New Apigee customers using AWS for Apigee’s Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) cloud product include AccuWeather, Allstate Corporation, OpenGov Inc., and Sage Payment Solutions, among other leading companies in the financial services, insurance, retail, media and technology industries.
“We’re collaborating with AWS to give Apigee’s SaaS customers the benefit of a proven, industry-leading cloud platform to power their API programs,” said Chet Kapoor, Apigee CEO. “Today’s modern enterprises use APIs to become digital businesses - delivering strategic mobile apps, growing partner and developer ecosystems, and creating new levels of internal efficiencies. We find that AWS gives our cloud customers confidence that they can scale their API programs as they grow, with strong performance.”
Apigee Edge is a leading API management platform used by hundreds of enterprises worldwide, including 30 percent of the companies in the Fortune 100, to help securely deliver and manage the APIs that power mobile applications and other digital initiatives. The Apigee Cloud is designed to deliver the high throughput and scale required by the most demanding digital businesses; it currently processes over 300 billion API calls per year. Companies using AWS services like Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2), Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3) and AWS Lambda can easily take advantage of Apigee’s cloud product to promote high performance, security and scale for their API programs.
“Apigee shares AWS’s commitment to innovation and customer satisfaction,” said Terry Wise, vice president of Worldwide Partner Ecosystem, Amazon Web Services, Inc. “AWS provides companies of all sizes, across all industries with on-demand, highly elastic, reliable technology resources on the cloud. As more and more companies utilize the cloud, they want an easy, painless way to migrate their large and complex IT infrastructures to AWS, and to use the security and management controls that their IT teams already know. Apigee enables companies of all types to do this with the APIs they’re already using, while leveraging the power of AWS.”
“At OpenGov, we’re focused on delivering a powerful financial transparency and business intelligence platform for governments. As a software-as-a-service provider, we need a technology platform with the services and performance we can rely on. With Apigee Edge Cloud built on AWS, we get the benefits of AWS’s proven cloud-based services along with the full suite of Apigee’s API management capabilities, which includes monetization, analytics, Node.js support, and more,” said Tim Rodriguez, senior software engineer at OpenGov, Inc.
Apigee Reference Architecture for AWS Developers
Apigee recently announced a new reference architecture designed to make it easier for developers to use the richly featured Apigee Edge API management software on AWS. It provides a resource that documents best practices for considerations such as security and performance when developing Apigee-powered applications using AWS services. The reference architecture can be found here on the Apigee website.
In addition, Apigee is working with AWS Lambda to develop an open source plug-in to enable easier access to AWS services on Apigee Edge software. AWS Lambda is a next-generation compute service that runs developers’ code in response to events and automatically manages the compute resources for them, making it easy to build and manage applications that respond quickly to new information. Apigee’s API Management for AWS Lambda will be available later this year.
Apigee Edge: Available for public cloud, private cloud or hybrid deployment
Apigee Edge software is available both as an on-demand cloud service and an on-premises solution deployed in a customer’s private datacenter. In addition, the Apigee Edge Microgateway capability provides a hybrid cloud deployment option that leverages the availability and performance of the Apigee public cloud together with the performance of local, on-premises API management. With these three deployment options, Apigee empowers customers to optimize the performance, availability and capacity of their API programs.
