Implementing a Reliable, Auto-Healing Scalable Platform at VMware

Gopala Krishna

Vmware, Lead Application Administrator

An API gateway is the most critical piece of enterprise integration for IT. Therefore, we needed to implement a robust API gateway in a reliable, auto-healing scalable platform. This talk will share how we implemented an open source gateway on a Kubernetes platform with multi-datacenter auto failover to achieve this objective.

For this implementation, we developed a customized monitoring script to execute the auto failover between the data centers in case of API gateway failures. The result was 99.95 percent uptime.

With this architecture in place, we also succeeded in performing chaos engineering using a combination of open source and in-house chaos tools.

Key takeaways will include:
• How to implement a robust API gateway in a reliable, auto-healing scalable platform
• How we achieved 99.95 percent uptime
• How to combine open source and in-house tools to successfully perform chaos engineering
