Migrating APIConnect from V5 to V10:
APIConnect Migration is about “Movement”. It’s defined as “The process of moving the product, data and or infrastructure from one platform or system to another.
Why do we need to move from v5 to v10?
API Connect v10 is a scalable multi-cloud API to create, secure, manage and socialize APIs across clouds to power digital applications
- Deployment flexibility: It can be deployed across clouds and on-premise so that API Gateways are close to Backend applications whether they are on-premise or across multiple clouds.
- Lifecycle operations: For deployment of V10 in Open Shift and other Kubernetes platforms, Kubernetes Operators are provided.
What gateway services are available when moving to v10?
Two gateway services are available while migrating from v5 to v10.
- V5c API Gateway Service: –
No Development is Required to run V5 assemblies we can expect a 5-15% of improvement in performance.
- V10 native API Gateway Service: –
It Provides higher performance and Development is required for API assemblies to work and to use new capabilities we can expect a 5-10X improvement in performance.
