Flexible — Atmosphere allows customers to define and manage their APIs using a wide range of messaging types and formats including REST/XML, REST/JSON and SOAP. It allows customers to create an API with multiple interfaces using different standards with no extra development effort

SOA enabled — In addition to exposing new capabilities, customers can leverage Atmosphere to harness existing investments in web services and enterprise SOA, presenting these capabilities in new ways

“Atmosphere represents an important breakthrough in the way that enterprises leverage APIs to create new business opportunities by reaching a growing developer community,” said Alistair Farquharson, SOA Software chief technology officer. “It is the first truly enterprise-ready solution, offering customers the robust, flexible capabilities they require for large-scale use.”

The Atmosphere product capabilities include:

• API definition, content, policy and lifecycle management to ensure that APIs are correctly structured and well documented with integration with internal design and development processes

• Intermediation to simplify the creation of RESTful APIs with both XML and JSON content from various internal service types with paging and caching to improve app performance

• Security capabilities to help protect the APIs from abuse and ensure the privacy of customer data

• QoS management (SLAs and quotas) to protect internal applications from overload at the API and to provide customers with service-level guarantee

• Consumer contract monitoring and management of traffic from individual apps

• Integrated sandbox, testing and debugging capabilities to simplify the delivery of high-quality APIs
