Apigee and Pivotal Team Up to Deliver Comprehensive API Management on Pivotal Cloud Foundry

SAN JOSE, Calif. and SAN FRANCISCO, May 19, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Apigee® (NASDAQ:APIC), developer of a leading API platform, and Pivotal®, the company accelerating digital transformation for enterprises, today announced the availability of Apigee’s API management software for Pivotal's Cloud Foundry®. Pivotal users can now select Apigee Edge software from the Pivotal Network marketplace to get Apigee’s comprehensive API management capabilities easily integrated into their Web applications built with Pivotal Cloud Foundry.

“APIs and Cloud Native platforms such as Pivotal Cloud Foundry are key for building applications in today’s modern enterprises,” said Ed Anuff, senior vice president at Apigee. “Pivotal Cloud Foundry provides a consistent experience for the developer and operator, regardless of the underlying cloud infrastructure used. We share the Cloud Foundry goal of simplifying the complexity of a multi-cloud world, and we are collaborating with leading Cloud Native platform providers like Pivotal to make it easier for enterprises using any and every cloud to take advantage of comprehensive API management.”

The Apigee-Pivotal Cloud Foundry integration provides a feature-rich API management solution on an industry-leading Cloud Native platform with the reliability and flexibility to deploy in various on-premises, cloud-based, and hybrid cloud topologies. This technology integration takes advantage of Pivotal’s "Route Services Feature.” Apigee Edge can automatically create API proxies in Pivotal Cloud Foundry, enabling policies to be seamlessly applied, and APIs can also be automatically published to a developer portal. All API requests in software developed on Pivotal Cloud Foundry are routed to Apigee for security, analytics and traffic management.

"At Pivotal we are helping customers to re-architect their businesses for the cloud,” said James Watters, senior vice president of Products at Pivotal. “Cloud Native architecture implies applications built for horizontal scale, always-on resiliency, and API first. The combination of Pivotal Cloud Foundry and Apigee Edge can allow our customers to operate at scale with lower operational cost and higher service availability."

“Apigee API management and Pivotal Cloud Foundry are a powerful combination for building modern connected applications,” said Vish Nandlall, chief technology officer, Telstra. “Digital is disrupting many industries, making it increasingly important for businesses to rapidly transform. Apigee and Pivotal Cloud Foundry are a part of our ongoing IT innovation and digital journey.”

“At Swisscom, we are committed to building a modern, digital business that includes APIs and cloud-native applications,” said Martin Graf, vice president, API Product Management & Development, Swisscom. “This integration of Apigee with Pivotal Cloud Foundry will make it much easier to expose and manage services that are developed in Cloud Foundry, without the need for additional configuration. We believe it’s an important collaboration for the two companies.”
