Current sessions

Self-hosted API Management gateway overview

The need for API Management services for public APIs has been on the rise; providing important features like security, traffic control, logging, caching and more.

Nonetheless, such services are normally tightly bound to the cloud, which puts on-premises-hosted APIs in a disadvantaged state; increased latency, increased bandwidth cost, and lack of control of data flow under specific data-governance constraints.

To solve this problem, Microsoft has introduced the Self-hosted API Management gateway service, which provides the rich API management features, but hosted on-premises.

In this session we will learn about this service, how it is run, its features and limitations. Link to Join: https://zoom.us/j/979095512
