Hi Tyk Folks,
Just wanted to pass on a quick thank you. Our new startup has been mired for the past few weeks trying to stand up an open-source "API Management" solution but all the alternatives were killing us (time wise)...heavy-duty architecture and design, complex config that couldn't be easily automated, way more enterprise than we needed.
I came across Tyk last night - 12 hours later, we've got a demo running in our kubernetes cluster and the whole process couldn't have been simpler (and I'm just an ops guy). Maybe the only thing was the requirement to use the 'requirepass' configuration on redis....after I fixed it I found the fix in another post in this group (should have checked earlier).
In essence, what we needed;
1) something fast to stand-up, particularly in our kubernetes environment
2) securable with a minimal lifecycle headache
3) infinitely scalable
4) oauth2 integration
5) other typical API management features/functions
6) smallest technology footprint possible
We've had a look at our demo and Tyk ticks (no pun intended) all those requirements!
So thanks - as we start our new venture, we only have the 1 API and some simple use-cases. But your tool has gone straight to the top of the 'will licence' list, when that time comes. We'll be following your roadmap with real interest.
