Provisioning Oracle API Platform Gateway Nodes using Terraform and Ansible on AWS by Kevin King


When using Oracle Autonomous API Platform, an API gets deployed to a logical gateway.  The logical gateway consists of one or more nodes which are instances of the runtime, installed on physical machines, virtual machines, or cloud infrastructure.  The gateway nodes handle the processing of the API requests, but a load balancer is still required to distribute traffic between the nodes.  When performance becomes an issue, more nodes can be added to increase throughput.  Providing an automated way to manage nodes ensures consistency of configurations and the ability to easily add and remove nodes.

The gateway nodes can be installed on-premise or in the cloud, and are not restricted to the Oracle cloud.  This allows for customers who are already using AWS to host their micro-services, to use Oracle’s API Platform platform to be able to monitor and expose their APIs on a central location.  The API Platform portal, provides a central location deploy, activate, deprecate, and secure APIs while having complete visibility of the usages and KPI monitoring.

In this blog, I’ll describe how I’ve created an automated way to provision, configure, and register new API gateway nodes, running on Amazon EC2 into the API Platform using Terraform and Ansible. Read the complete article here.
