Oracle Cloud Infrastructure API Gateway is a brand new component within the Developers Services in OCI.
We know that Oracle already had the Oracle API Platform Cloud Services which includes an API Gateway (Weblogic based); personally I’ve used it and deploy it for a couple of customers and is fine, it does the job. And if you are familiar with weblogic, then it was pretty straight forward to understand the architecture and deploy it. But when it comes to a serverless perspective, a modern type architecture, then we may have some trouble understanding that a big and fat Weblogic is sitting there as your gateway.
Oracle is moving in the right direction offering some pretty good things for developers within OCI. For example: Oracle Functions, Oracle Kubernetes Engine, Oracle Containers Registry; and now API Gateway.
API Gateway is a fully Oracle managed component, that is used to provide protected RESTful API endpoints for Oracle Functions, Oracle Kubernetes Engine, and other services on Oracle Cloud Infrastructure. Read the complete article here.
