Service Oriented Architecture remains a solid foundation for enterprises, and has diverged to include APIs and microservices. APIs help with the consumption and distribution of business capabilities as sharable services, and now the emergence of the microservices paradigm delivers flexibility and scalability to the development and deployment of service-based applications.
Akana helps enterprises to build web-scale, distributed and decoupled applications that are composed of microservices. Akana enables policy based DevOps automation and a runtime platform that provides service discovery, registry, security enforcement, scaling, routing and auditing of microservices on a variety of containerization and/or cloud platforms.
Akana helps enterprises deliver applications as a series of microservices (components) that operate independently from each other.
Scalability & Resilience
Scale your applications up and down on demand to meet the rapidly growing and changing nature of your customer's needs.
Ensure that individual microservices enforce appropriate security policies to minimize the risk of data breach.
Take advantage of lightweight container platforms for microservice deployment while still providing the core capabilities required by an enterprise services environment.
One of the core tenets of microservices is that Developers are responsible for deploying and operating their own code. In this environment, it is even more critical than ever to provide effective control and auditing over the complete SDLC including the deployment blueprint.
Monitoring & Analytics
Understand the health, performance, and usage of a distributed application is never easy. Breaking an application up into completely independent microservices further complicates this challenge.
