1.What is Tyk On-Prem?
Tyk On Premise is the way to install an entire Tyk installation in your own infrastructure, it enables you to have full control over every element of the tyk stack as well as no external dependency on our cloud or cloud infrastructure.
The Full Tyk On-Prem system consists of:
- Tyk API Gateway: The API Gateway that proxies and manages your traffic
- Tyk Dashboard: The management dashbaord and integration API for managing a cluster of Tyk Gateways, also shows analytics and features the developer portal
- Tyk Pump: Handles moving analytics data between your gateways and your dashboard (amongst other data sinks)
- Tyk Identity Broker (Optional): Handles integrations with third-party IDP’s
- Tyk Multi-Data-Center Bridge (Optional, Enterprise-only): Allows for the configuration of a Tyk ecosystem that spans many data centers and clouds.
A full on premise installation has a few additional requirements:
- Redis: The primary key store for the Tyk Gateway, also synchronises data across gateways in a horizontally scaling installation
- MongoDB: The primary configuration store and analytics data store, required by the dashboard and portal, not required by the gateway.
