This yr at Google Cloud Next, the theme is all about supporting hybrid environments, so it shouldn’t come as a shock that Apigee, the API company it bought in 2016 for $265 million, can also be entering into the act. At this time, Apigee announced the Beta of Apigee Hybrid, a brand new product designed for hybrid environments.
Amit Zavery, who just lately joined Google Cloud after a few years at Oracle, and Nandan Sridhar, describe the brand new product in a joint weblog submit as “a brand new deployment possibility for the Apigee API administration platform that allows you to host your runtime wherever—in your knowledge middle or the general public cloud of your alternative.”
As with Anthos, the company’s approach to hybrid management introduced earlier at this time, the thought is to have a single solution to handle your APIs regardless of the place you select to run them.
“With Apigee hybrid, you get a single, full-featured API management solution across all your environments, while giving you control over your APIs and the data they expose and ensuring a unified strategy across all APIs in your enterprise,” Zavery and Sridhar wrote within the weblog submit asserting the brand new method.
The announcement is a part of an general technique by the corporate to assist a buyer’s method to computing throughout a variety environments, sometimes called hybrid cloud. Within the Cloud Native world, the thought is to current a single cloth to handle your deployments, no matter location.
This seems to be an extension of that concept, which is smart provided that Google was the primary firm to develop and open source Kubernetes, which is on the forefront of containerization and Cloud Native computing. Whereas this isn’t pure Cloud Native computing, it’s conserving true to its ethos and it matches within the scope of Google Cloud’s method to computing normally, particularly as it’s being outlined at this yr’s convention.
