The On-Premises Platform

What Is It?

API Fortress can be deployed in nearly any manner that works for you – whether cloud, on-premises, or hybrid.

Our most popular is on-premises, which means the entire platform lives in your environment behind your firewall, or in your VPC.

Why?

There are multiple reasons for having an on-prem engine, and these are some of the most common:

  • Satisfies Any Security Requirements
  • Complete Data Ownership
  • Access to Private Staging Environments
  • Mocking
  • Load Testing
  • Unlimited Use
  • Customization

Customization

API Fortress is extremely modular, and most functionalities can be enhanced with extensions and integrations. Some use cases are:

  • Forwarding the results of the tests in a dedicated platform for further analysis, another database, or an object storage.
  • Customizing the chain of alerts with internal tools.
  • Storing the code of the tests in a location that is not the API Fortress cloud.
  • Adding the ability to ingest and analyze exotic data types.
  • Adding functionalities provided by 3rd party libraries

All this is done with a few lines of Java/Groovy that we can help you with.

Deployment

A simple Docker/Kubernetes/Open Shift deployment. We ask a handful of questions, setup a configuration file for you, and then you deploy with your preferred container. The system requirements here.

If you would like to trial API Fortress on-premises, simply fill out this survey and we will work on a configuration file for you.

Operations

The engine operates exactly the same way API Fortress does in the cloud. On-premises actually offers even more features which we discussed above under Customizations.
