I work for a large governmental organization.
We are building up SDDC using VCF now and considering an API management tool to provide API service to clients. What is the best API management tool for our case?
Thank you for your help.
The Broadcom Layer 7 API platform is a robust and highly technical solution that gives you several options for building out APIs and can sit well with the portal. I have set the gateway up using Helm charts into Kubernetes (Plain, EKS, and AKS) as well as OCP. All are fairly easy to implement with their new approach to deployment that they have developed recently.
Most of the API solutions now run in containers (Kubernetes) like the one described by Derek but if you want to avoid the burden of having a container supervisor on top of a VM supervisor my recommendation is that you look for a solution that runs plain on VMWare. One option is IBM API Connect. It includes:
1. API Manager which provides a user interface that facilitates the promotion and tracking of APIs
2. API Gateway which enforces runtime policies to secure and control API traffic, provides the endpoints that expose APIs to the calling applications, and provides assembly functions that enable APIs to integrate with various endpoints
3. Developer portal which provides a customizable self-service web-based portal to application developers to explore, discover, and subscribe to APIs.
4. Analytics server
All of them as VMware images.
Hello community members,
We have implemented the 3scale API Gateway and we've been trying to use the 3Scale API Management tool. However, we found a lot of issues with customizing that tool. One of the options we've been considering is to use a different management tool. Is it possible?
For example, can we use 3 SCALE API Gateway and Mulesoft Anypoint API Manager for 3scale API management? An...

Hi @Niki Shetty,
Usually, all these API Mgmt platforms are built with a proprietary integration in mind. I doubt such cross-product integration is possible.
However, can you elaborate more on the below:
1. What customizations you were into that are causing pain?
3Scale is not best vis-a-vis that activity. The best tool here could be WSO2 which allows a lot of customizations.
2. What management activity you are looking into, to offload to another tool like Mulesoft AAPIM?
3. What type of deployments are you into? Stand-alone? Kubernetes? etc?
Hi @Niki Shetty,
We know this very well. Every so-called API runtime, i.e. an API gateway, is fixed to its own technology. In other words, API integration is the new vendor lock-in.
What we have learned is that there is an urgent need for a higher-level API control plane. So you separate the API management from the so-called runtime. You can also call this API Master Management. This dramatically reduces complexity, creates friendly API developers and increases security. If you need something - we're there for you.
