We’re pleased to announce the Limited Availability (LA) release of the Oracle Cloud Infrastructure API Gateway service.
This service is a highly available, fully managed gateway that enables developers to create governed HTTP/S interfaces for other Oracle Cloud Infrastructure services, including Oracle Functions, Container Engine for Kubernetes, and Compute.
The API Gateway service supports the delivery of APIs declaratively, as specified in the Cloud Native Computing Foundation’s definition of cloud native. In addition, this service provides support for the API Gateway pattern in a microservices context.
Cloud Native API Management Platform
The API Gateway service provides the following features:
- HTTPS endpoint for Oracle Functions, which lets you write Oracle Functions and provide access to your users via RESTful API
- RESTful APIs for any other HTTPS backends that you develop on Oracle Cloud Infrastructure
- Resource server for AuthN/AuthZ that leverages functions to use any authorization server
- Rate-limiting to protect your backends from spikes in volume
- Interface filtering to protect your backends from unintended requests
- Logging for monitoring your services by using Oracle Cloud Infrastructure common logging features
Common Use Cases
You can use the API Gateway service to address these common use cases:
- Expose Oracle Functions as APIs: Applications built on Oracle Cloud Infrastructure and distributed applications on other clouds can access your Oracle Functions via RESTful APIs served by API Gateway. Using the gateway, you can provide an OAuth2 authenticated RESTful API for an Oracle Function. Read the complete article here.
