Swiss Railways operates a substantial Red Hat OpenShift hybrid cloud installation, hosting many thousand containers. Introducing microservices at scale and moving to hybrid container infrastructures introduces a new set of challenges. What about security, life cycle, dependencies, governance, and self-service with thousands of services on a hybrid environment?
To handle the enormous growth of APIs, an API management platform based on 3scale by Red Hat on-premise and Red Hat single sign-on (SSO) was built, integrating internal and external IdPs. The solution is portable, scalable, and highly available, and all processes are automated and available as self service. The platform is in production, serving multiple critical internal and external APIs targeting 100K+ API calls per second.
In this session, Thomas Siegrist, Swiss Federal Railways, Christian Sanabria, ipt, and Christoph Eberle, Red Hat, discuss the benefits of building a fully automated self-service API management and SSO platform in a distributed, hybrid environment, how Swiss Railways approached the project, what challenges they faced, and how they solved them.
