The best API gateway for Microservices
Microservices and Tyk – the ideal pairing
Ultra-flexible solutions with a microservices-first approach
Whether you’re migrating to a microservice architecture or building from scratch with microservices, Tyk is the natural choice.
Super flexible and cloud native, Tyk enables you to scale up and down as much and as fast as you need. There’s no need for huge training programme rollouts, or doing things a fixed ‘Tyk way’ – we fit to your way of doing things and integrate naturally.
“We use microservices ourselves – we walk the walk.”
Tyk takes a microservices-first approach, so we know what we’re talking about.
All our components can easily scale horizontally. You can use small servers to provide high availability, then simply add more instances, depending on your traffic needs. Scaling down is also simplicity itself.
From cloud-native environments to on-premise solutions and everything in between, Tyk is here to help.
“Chợ Tốt are moving to a full microservice architecture, supported by service discovery and continuous deployment. Tyk is central to this, reliably serving 10million API requests per day, with response times of less than 30ms, whilst enabling experimental product innovation to be quickly deployed and tested.”
The only API Management platform, built from the ground-up for microservices
No Monoliths or legacy proxies
Tyk isn’t dependent on Nginx or other legacy proxies, it was built from the ground-up to enable enterprise scale microservice programmes.
Mesosphere, Eureka, Etcd, Zookeeper, Consul, Linkerd… we have you covered to ensure your API programme can benefit from service discovery. All accessible through configuration, automation or our powerful dashboard GUI.
Out of the box, Tyk provides the circuit breaker pattern for your microservices, you can configure through the GUI or API Definition and hook into our events handler to take action when a circuit breaker trips.
Enforce an SLA by configuring your API timeouts via the Tyk Dashboard or an API definition. Total flexibility and control.
