SOA Software Announces Industry's First Enterprise-Ready API Management Solution

Company's Atmosphere Products Enable Customers to Expose Business Capabilities

LOS ANGELES, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 06/13/11 -- SOA Software, a leading Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) and cloud services Governance provider, announced today the availability of Atmosphere, the industry's first true enterprise-ready API Management solution.

Enterprises are making business applications available as APIs to drive business growth and expose new opportunities. As a result APIs are reshaping the business landscape as dramatically as the rush to create an Internet presence with a web site did in the late 90s. APIs are becoming the primary way that businesses interact with their customers, reach new markets, and provide the global app development community with the tools to deliver business capabilities to customers.

Atmosphere provides a secure, robust platform that companies can use to share their APIs with the growing developer community. Atmosphere manages, monitors and secures APIs ensuring that companies' APIs deliver the level of service customers and partners require; the security of corporate and customer information and assets; and the integrity of the corporate brand.

"Finally, the growing maturity of enterprise service-oriented architecture (SOA) initiatives makes public API projects more likely," said Eric Knipp, Gartner Research Director.

Atmosphere is the industry's first true enterprise-ready API Management solution. Atmosphere is:

  • Production-proven -- Atmosphere leverages SOA Software's experience in meeting the needs of demanding production environments in many US Fortune 1000 companies
  • Hybrid deployment capable -- Atmosphere API Management solutions can be deployed on-premise or in the cloud to meet business requirements or regulations that mandate businesses guarantee the security and privacy of customer data
  • App-centric -- Atmosphere provides sophisticated yet simple security capabilities that allow API providers to control and monitor app's usage of their APIs
  • Policy-driven -- Atmosphere defines all security and quality-of-service through centrally managed policies, ensuring consistency between multiple API implementations and versions
  • Flexible -- Atmosphere allows customers to define and manage their APIs using a wide range of messaging types and formats including REST/XML, REST/JSON and SOAP. It allows customers to create an API with multiple interfaces using different standards with no extra development effort
  • SOA enabled -- In addition to exposing new capabilities, customers can leverage Atmosphere to harness existing investments in web services and enterprise SOA, presenting these capabilities in new ways

"Atmosphere represents an important breakthrough in the way that enterprises leverage APIs to create new business opportunities by reaching a growing developer community," said Alistair Farquharson, SOA Software chief technology officer. "It is the first truly enterprise-ready solution, offering customers the robust, flexible capabilities they require for large-scale use."

The Atmosphere product capabilities include:

  • API definition, content, policy and lifecycle management to ensure that APIs are correctly structured and well documented with integration with internal design and development processes
  • Intermediation to simplify the creation of RESTful APIs with both XML and JSON content from various internal service types with powerful paging and caching to improve app performance
  • Sophisticated security capabilities to help protect the APIs from abuse and ensure the privacy of customer data
  • Comprehensive QoS management (SLAs and quotas) to protect internal applications from overload at the API and to provide customers with service-level guarantee
  • Extensive consumer contract monitoring and management of traffic from individual apps
  • Integrated sandbox, testing and debugging capabilities to simplify the delivery of high-quality APIs

Docker is sweeping across startups and enterprises alike, changing the way we build and ship applications. It's the most prominent and widely known software container platform, and it's particularly useful for eliminating common challenges when collaborating on code (like the "it works on my machine" phenomenon that most devs know all too well). With Docker, you can run and manage apps side-by-side - in isolated containers - resulting in better compute density. It's something that many developer...
The “Digital Era” is forcing us to engage with new methods to build, operate and maintain applications. This transformation also implies an evolution to more and more intelligent applications to better engage with the customers, while creating significant market differentiators. In both cases, the cloud has become a key enabler to embrace this digital revolution. So, moving to the cloud is no longer the question; the new questions are HOW and WHEN. To make this equation even more complex, most ...
Your homes and cars can be automated and self-serviced. Why can't your storage? From simply asking questions to analyze and troubleshoot your infrastructure, to provisioning storage with snapshots, recovery and replication, your wildest sci-fi dream has come true. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 20th Cloud Expo, Dan Florea, Director of Product Management at Tintri, provided a ChatOps demo where you can talk to your storage and manage it from anywhere, through Slack and similar services with...
Don’t go chasing waterfall … development, that is. According to a recent post by Madison Moore on Medium featuring insights from several software delivery industry leaders, waterfall is – while still popular – not the best way to win in the marketplace. With methodologies like Agile, DevOps and Continuous Delivery becoming ever more prominent over the past 15 years or so, waterfall is old news. Or, is it? Moore cites a recent study by Gartner: “According to Gartner’s IT Key Metrics Data report, ...

Many organizations are now looking to DevOps maturity models to gauge their DevOps adoption and compare their maturity to their peers. However, as enterprise organizations rush to adopt DevOps, moving past experimentation to embrace it at scale, they are in danger of falling into the trap that they have fallen into time and time again. Unfortunately, we've seen this movie before, and we know how it ends: badly.

Without a clear strategy for cost control and an architecture designed with cloud services in mind, costs and operational performance can quickly get out of control. To avoid multiple architectural redesigns requires extensive thought and planning. Boundary (now part of BMC) launched a new public-facing multi-tenant high resolution monitoring service on Amazon AWS two years ago, facing challenges and learning best practices in the early days of the new service.
In his keynote at 19th Cloud Expo, Sheng Liang, co-founder and CEO of Rancher Labs, discussed the technological advances and new business opportunities created by the rapid adoption of containers.

All organizations that did not originate this moment have a pre-existing culture as well as legacy technology and processes that can be more or less amenable to DevOps implementation. That organizational culture is influenced by the personalities and management styles of Executive Management, the wider culture in which the organization is situated, and the personalities of key team members at all levels of the organization. This culture and entrenched interests usually throw a wrench in the work...
