Provisioning Oracle API Platform Gateway Nodes using Terraform and Ansible on AWS by Kevin King

image

When using Oracle Autonomous API Platform, an API gets deployed to a logical gateway.  The logical gateway consists of one or more nodes which are instances of the runtime, installed on physical machines, virtual machines, or cloud infrastructure.  The gateway nodes handle the processing of the API requests, but a load balancer is still required to distribute traffic between the nodes.  When performance becomes an issue, more nodes can be added to increase throughput.  Providing an automated way to manage nodes ensures consistency of configurations and the ability to easily add and remove nodes.

The gateway nodes can be installed on-premise or in the cloud, and are not restricted to the Oracle cloud.  This allows for customers who are already using AWS to host their micro-services, to use Oracle’s API Platform platform to be able to monitor and expose their APIs on a central location.  The API Platform portal, provides a central location deploy, activate, deprecate, and secure APIs while having complete visibility of the usages and KPI monitoring.

In this blog, I’ll describe how I’ve created an automated way to provision, configure, and register new API gateway nodes, running on Amazon EC2 into the API Platform using Terraform and Ansible. Read the complete article here.

Oracle API Platform Cloud Service – Enabling the Digital Transformation by Eduardo Barra Cordeiro

image

We live in a digital world. With the digital transformation, customers demand connectivity and innovative services. And in this rapidly changing marketplace, they have more options than ever. Companies need to respond quickly. It can be tough to keep up. On the bright side, this is a really exciting time because we can, in fact, deliver faster. And more. So how can you meet consumers expectations?

One of the most popular ways of communicating digital information is via APIs, or Application Programming Interfaces. A lot of widely known apps use APIs: the most common social platforms, your favorite traffic apps, like Waze, your bank app or even apps like weather. They all use APIs.

In this post, we will present the Oracle API Platform Cloud Service, and walk you through some of its concepts, including why you should consider using it.

Why an API platform?

To better understand why you should use this platform in your company, we should talk about hybrid clouds. Gartner defines a hybrid cloud service “as a cloud computing service that is composed of some combination of private, public and community cloud services, from different service providers. A hybrid cloud service crosses isolation and provider boundaries so that it can’t be simply put in one category of private, public, or community cloud service. It allows one to extend either the capacity or the capability of a cloud service, by aggregation, integration or customization with another cloud service.”

More and more companies decide to move their applications to public clouds (AWS, Azure, Google, IBM, Oracle…) or even decommit their on-premise applications and start using SaaS or PaaS solutions. At the same time, they still have legacy applications on premise that must integrate with cloud resources and vice versa. Customers and end users are requiring to have their mobile applications connecting to companies’ systems, most of them still on-premise. Not only with cloud, also exposing api’s quick to end users like apps on mobile devices etc. Read the complete article here.

4 Ways the Future of Integration Got Smarter at OOW19 by Daryl Eicher

image

Intelligent automation needs trusted data…

If you are modernizing or digitizing enterprise processes such as procure to pay or recruit to retire, you know how much time to benefit matters. Oracle Integration accelerates your time to connect applications by up to 10X with prebuilt adapters and recipes for all of your on-premises and SaaS business systems.

At OOW19 in San Francisco, Oracle executives announced four innovations underway that put the pedal to the metal for lean IT teams and their business counterparts.

1. Box Press Release: Box, a leading Cloud Content Management platform, and Oracle Integration have teamed up to enable Oracle SaaS and on-premises application customers to seamlessly synchronize with their Box content.

2. Intelligent Automation: Simple, seamless access to Oracle Machine Learning, within Oracle Autonomous Data Warehouse for smarter decision making, streamlined operations, and lower total cost of ownership.

3. Business Accelerators: For example, prebuilt NetSuite integrations share order details with Oracle Warehouse Management Cloud. Developed together with NetSuite engineering, this recipe limits your upgrade risks.

4. Insight for End-to-End Processes: Integration Insight for business processes spanning multiple applications with real-time data, viewed in intuitive dashboards, helps you to more rapidly respond to issues and opportunities.

View an avatar-led demo to discover how Oracle Integration can accelerate your next innovation by up to 10X over traditional approaches. Read the complete article here.

Have you ever left your house and wished you were better prepared for the weather?

In this learning path, you’ll build a decision model that makes the decision for you. You’ll create a simple process application that asks you to input the current temperature and the chance of rain. Based on the forecast, the application decides whether you should bring:

· An umbrella, for warm and rainy weather

· A raincoat, for cold and rainy weather

· An overcoat, for cold and dry weather

· Nothing, for warm and dry weather
