Cloud Management Platform Provider Scalr Unveils API Management and Self-Service for Advanced Cloud Services

Scalr, a global provider of cloud management solutions, has announced that its Cloud Services Gateway version 7.7.0 is out of feature preview, and is now generally available on Scalr’s Enterprise Edition.

Scalr’s Cloud Services Gateway would now empower IT to offer users safe API access to advanced cloud services like Lambda, RedShift, SQS, DynamoDB and more. Administrators would gain visibility over cloud service usage, and control over their consumption.

scalr cloud managementThe Scalr Cloud Services Gateway (CSG) is a solution available in Enterprise Scalr, which allows end-users to request API access to cloud services such as SQS, ECS, Glacier, Route53 and more. Administrators are then able to approve or deny those requests, as well as enforce policies on cloud service usage. CSG powers RBAC (who can use what service), policy (how can they use it), and quotas (how much can they use!) for all services, while developers get complete compatibility for all their services.

The CSG acts as an API proxy between the company’s applications and cloud platform, “providing complete compatibility with tools, documentation, etc.” Developers just point to the endpoint hosted in their Scalr infrastructure and everything would work the same, but admins get visibility and control over service consumption.

In its initial release, the Scalr Cloud Services Gateway supports :

  • AWS services: Lambda, ECS, Route53, Glacier, API Gateway, SQS, SNS, SES, RedShift and DynamoDB (Other services such as RDS, S3, ELB, ALB, EC2 and more are already supported in Scalr Farms).
  • Azure services: App Service, Web Apps, Mobile Apps, Logic Apps, API Apps, Container Registry, Container Service, Log Analytics, Azure Monitor, Application Insights, SQL Database and SQL Data Warehouse.

The Cloud Services Gateway is available now in version 7.7.0 of Enterprise Scalr.
