To Multicloud and Beyond!

Multiple cloud providers? Cloud native capabilities? Hybrid cloud environment? On-premises deployment? Akana does it all.

Accelerate Deployment

Akana is cloud agnostic. You can set up Akana in multiple cloud environments, and switch from one cloud to another quickly. You won’t be stuck on a platform that doesn't support changes in your business or strategy.

That means you can maximize the benefits of multiple cloud providers at once and accelerate deployments with Kubernetes and Docker, among others.

Get the Best of Both Worlds

Akana is the same platform with the same capabilities, whether it’s deployed across clouds or on-premises. So, you can balance on-premises requirements with cloud innovation. With Akana, you can have some workloads on-premises and others in a public cloud.

Your Akana API gateway protects the data in cloud and on-premises deployment. At the same time, you get a single platform and interface for managing your APIs.

Unparalleled Support for RESTful, SOAP, and GraphQL APIs

Akana helps accelerate time-to-market with support for RESTful, SOAP, and GraphQL APIs. How? Akana supports all API types, languages, and protocols from a single platform. And it allows you to document and catalog APIs hosted on third-party platforms. This improves oversight and allows stakeholders to manage complex API programs in a consolidated fashion.

API Platform Faster Integration

Faster Integration. More Freedom

Application integration is business-critical. But the integration process moves slowly. Unless you have Akana.

Akana accelerates integration.

You can seamlessly integrate services, with the mediation, transformation, and orchestration capabilities you need to support your business. Akana even supports message brokers like AMQP and JMS.

At the same time, Akana gives you flexibility and freedom through decoupling.

You get a centralized platform to manage decentralized applications. So, you can enforce where required and enable where needed. That means you can delegate security, regardless of what’s happening in other layers of your architecture. And you can make sense of your disparate applications.

What tools to use to implement an API gateway? 

Your API gateway is a critical tool in your API management arsenal. The gateway performs the heavy lifting – from rate limiting and routing services to user authentication and security policy enforcement. Akana API management comes ready-baked with a powerful API gateway, so you can hit the ground running.
