Are you thinking about building a digital marketplace where you can expose APIs for your products and services? Or are you building an internal application using microservices that connect via API calls?
If so, you need an API management solution.
Unfortunately, first‑generation API management solutions are inadequate. They are too complex and deliver poor performance, especially as you embark on a journey toward microservices.
As the industry’s most‑trusted API gateway, we knew we could do better. We knew we could modernize full API lifecycle management.
That’s why we’re excited to announce general availability of the API Management Module for NGINX Controller. The API Management Module is a next‑generation API management solution that enables I&O teams to define and publish APIs, manage traffic to and secure backend applications, monitor performance issues, and analyze API usage. In short, it’s a single solution to manage the entire lifecycle of APIs without compromising performance.
Built on an innovative architecture, the API Management Module combines the raw power and efficiency of NGINX Plus as an API gateway with new control‑plane functionality. Our API management solution is fast and flexible, making it suitable for both legacy and modern, microservices‑based applications.
