We are pleased to announce the availability today of a major new whitepaper discussing how to successfully deploy API Connect in a wide range of topologies. The paper provides an extensive reference that answers many of the questions we are asked by customers as they grow their API Connect usage from simple development scenarios through their testing and validation phases and into complex production deployments with significant availability and resilience requirements.
In the whitepaper we describe each of the major deployment components (shown in the diagram below) and deep dive into the key factors that affect the way that you size and deploy those components, and embed them into your wider infrastructure.
We also highlight the thought process that you might follow in determining the availability requirements for your deployment and outline the commonly observed deployment patterns such as multi-site deployments like that shown below. The paper talks largely about on-premises deployments that are managed by you – the customer – but also discusses the equivalent relevant aspects as they apply to Bluemix Dedicated.
We hope that you find this new whitepaper useful in your understanding and deployment of API Connect, and we look forward to hearing your comments!
