TIBCO Updates its Mashery API Platform with Cloud-Native Design
TIBCO Software has released a cloud-native version of its TIBCO Cloud Mashery software, an API management platform for containerized private cloud and public Platform as a Service (PaaS) environments. The tool provides core API management for organizations in the midst of adopting cloud-native development and deployment practices like DevOps and microservices development. The solution is compatible with any PaaS or Infrastructure as a Service, as well as Kubernetes.
The product update means that TIBCO Mashery will be available globally in a containerized deployment that enables quicker development and improved control and scalability. TIBCO also provides API creation, productization, security, analytics of specific API programs, and a community of developers.
TIBCO Mashery provides API management capabilities in a SaaS framework for APIs, B2B APIs, and public API programs. It features API creation, packaging, testing, and management of APIs and a community of users. Security is provided via an embedded or optional on-prem API gateway. The company also offers a fully integrated data platform that can handle a variety of data integration use cases. TIBCO’s integration solution can be deployed on-prem, in the cloud, or via a hybrid model.
In a statement to the media, the company’s Vice President of Product Management and Strategy Rajeev Kozhikkattuthodi said of the news: “TIBCO’s approach provides all the benefits of the cloud with additional customer control, plus seamless alignment with cloud-native development tooling and practices. We are proud to continue leading the market in API management through innovation, this time by providing first-of-a-kind capabilities in cloud-native API management.”
This release comes on the heels of TIBCO’s June acquisition of cloud integrator Scribe Software, signaling an investment in growing its data and analytics product portfolio. TIBCO has since rolled Scribe Online capabilities into its TIBCO Cloud Integration solution as a complimentary package.
