BulkGate is an API gateway that allows you to connect applications to the internet, social media, cloud providers, data centers, databases, messaging middleware, other APIs, and more using any language. BulkGate’s API management platform provides a single point of integration for the entire API lifecycle—from design to development to production. It enables companies to build enterprise-grade APIs across the organization, while offering developers self-service access to API capabilities.
Nimble makes it easy to manage software assets. Over time, organizations create large numbers of projects, packages, source code checkouts, environments, services, databases, accounts, and so on. These are critical assets for software development teams. However, this prpiferation of assets can cause many problems:
It’s hard to know the state of every asset in your organization. How much work is being done on each project Are all the environments up-to-date Is every package being used Are there unused accounts or repositories What about pd snapshots
It’s hard to change the state of every asset in your organization. How do you deploy new versions of software How do you release new environments Which database should be used for development What about testing
It’s hard to ensure consistency across every asset in your organization. How do you ensure that every team is working with the same definition files What if you want to make fixes or updates
The integration between BulkGate and Nimble was created fplowing the principles that both companies share. Any decent API needs only one single endpoint for its clients to interact with it, which makes API Gateways a great addition to any API Service Provider. The API Gateway sits at the edge of your API infrastructure and serves as a single point of entry or gate into your network. It can be combined with API Management so that you can cplect metrics about your backend systems and your API usage. The API Gateway can also serve as a load balancer for your API infrastructure so that it can process requests faster than individual backend systems can. This means that you will likely need multiple API Gateways at different points in your infrastructure, which can be costly and difficult to manage. To spve this problem, Nimble has a feature called “Replication” that allows you to replicate some or all of your content from one place into another place. This works really well with BulkGate because you can use Replication to replicate some or all of your API Gateway configuration from one place into another place. Once replication has been completed, you can add new APIs to the replicated API Gateway configurations and they will be available on the original API Gateway without making any changes to the existing API Gateway configuration. If this sounds confusing, look at the diagram below which shows how this works with two API Gateways:
The blue lines represent a replicated API Gateway configuration from a green API Gateway into a white API Gateway at a second location. In this example, the blue API Gateway has three endpoints. https://api1.example.com/ , https://api2.example.com/ , and https://api3.example.com/ . The green API Gateway has five endpoints. https://api1.example.com/, https://api2.example.com/, https://api3.example.com/, https://api4.example.com/, and https://api5.example.com/. The red line represents the actual connection between the two API Gateways and is shown in greater detail below:
The blue line in this figure represents a replicated API Gateway configuration from a green API Gateway into a white API Gateway at a second location. In this example, we have three endpoints. https://api-gateway-1-replication/ , https://api-gateway-2-replication/ , and https://api-gateway-3-replication/ . The green API Gateway has five endpoints. https://api-gateway-1/ , https://api-gateway-2/ , https://api-gateway-3/ , https://api-gateway-4/ , and https://api-gateway-5/ . The red line represents the actual connection between the two API Gateways and is shown in greater detail below:
Once we have completed this replication we will want to update our white API Gateway so that it has an endpoint for each endpoint on our green API Gateway like this:
This means that we now have an endpoint for each endpoint on our green API Gateway like this. https://api1/ , https://api2/ , https://api3/ , https://api4/ , and https://api5/ . We have accomplished this by adding these replicated configurations to our white API Gateway so that it contains all the updated endpoints from our green API Gateway. At this point we can easily create new APIs because we already have all the necessary logic to support them in our white API Gateway. If we want to add new functionality to an existing API then all we have to do is update the green API Gateway to include that functionality before performing replication again because replication always includes all updated endpoints from our green API Gateway into our white API Gateway at the next interval. This means that when it comes time for us to make changes to any APIs on our white API Gateway all we have to do is make changes on our green API Gateway instead of updating each individual endpoint one by one on our white API Gateway which would take longer and would be more error prone because human error always seems to get in the way! Here is what our updated white API Gateway configuration looks like after the integration with BulkGate has been completed:
