Tesco - Nginx Meetup

Added 02-May-2019

We'll take a look at how the growth of Tesco has impacted the historical design of our systems and how changes to our organisation has changed the shape and structure of the code.

We can show how our use of monitoring and metrics has allowed us to isolate existing key customer journeys through our systems and how that has guided our migration strategy.

From this insight we will show a few patterns we have utilised to allow us to break these problems down and work on them in a way that is more aligned to how modern Tesco functions.

Liam, will be discussing: Deployment Patterns for API Gateways

How to architect your application infrastructure for effective API delivery
APIs are changing the way we build applications and changing the way we expose data, both inside and outside our organizations. But what is the most efficient and effective way to deliver these APIs? That’s the job of the API gateway. In this session, we will look at different deployment patterns for API gateways, including:

• The centralized, edge gateway
• The multi-layer gateway
• Microgateways, sidecars and service mesh

We discuss how the implementation and consumption of your API can (and should) influence the selection of the most appropriate API gateway pattern when it comes to production deployment.

NGINX is the world’s number one API gateway, delivering the vast majority of today’s API traffic. Learn from our experience in this space, and how to ensure that your API management platform provides the optimum deployment pattern for your APIs.

Attendees will leave the session, knowing:

1. The different API gateway deployment patterns and their relative merits
2. How differences between API traffic and regular web traffic influences application and API delivery infrastructure
3. How software architecture decisions affect API delivery infrastructure
