InterSystems, a global leader in information technology software for health, business, and government applications, today introduced a new feature to InterSystems IRIS Data Platform™ 2019.2 – InterSystems API Manager. The new tool allows users to monitor and control traffic to and from web-based APIs within their IT infrastructure.
The number of API deployments is skyrocketing across industries as more companies build service-oriented application layers. As this number grows, software environments are becoming more distributed, making it critical for API traffic to be properly governed and monitored. InterSystems API Manager provides ease of use by enabling developers to route all traffic through a centralized gateway and forward requests to the appropriate target nodes. Developers using InterSystems API Manager will also be able to:
- Monitor all API traffic in a central location allowing users to identify and solve issues;
- Control API traffic by throttling throughput, configuring allowable payload sizes, whitelist or blacklist IP addresses, and take endpoints into maintenance mode;
- Onboard internal and external developers by providing interactive API documentation through a dedicated and customizable developer portal; and
- Secure APIs in one central place.
“Developers are adopting and rolling out new APIs at breakneck speed to meet the demands of digital transformation – and they need an intuitive management solution to enable their success,” said Scott Gnau, head of InterSystems Data Platforms. “We’re excited to provide InterSystems IRIS data platform customers with API management capabilities that make for seamless integration and fast deployment.”
InterSystems API Manager is easily configured via an intuitive, web-based user interface or via API calls making it an easy tool for remote deployments. InterSystems API Manager is released as a container allowing for easy adoption. Developers can also configure an InterSystems API Manager cluster consisting of multiple nodes to scale throughput capacity while keeping latency low.
