A Reference Architecture for Real-Time APIs In a previous blog, we showed how real‑time APIs play a critical role in our lives. As companies seek to compete in the digital era, APIs become a critical IT and business resource. Architecting the right underlying infrastructure ensures not only that your APIs are stable and secure, but also that they qualify as real‑time APIs, able to process API calls end-to-end within 30 milliseconds. API architectures are broadly broken up into two components: the data plane, or API gateway, and the control plane, which includes policy and developer portal servers. A real‑time API architecture depends mostly on the API gateway, which acts as a proxy to process API traffic. It’s the critical link in the performance chain. API gateways perform a variety of functions including authenticating API calls, routing requests to the right backends, [ more… ]

Available for preorder today, Surface Duo is purpose-built for mobile productivity When we created Surface seven years ago, we wanted to challenge convention by redefining expectations for what a productivity device should be, and what it should do. Put simply; we wanted to help people get things done. We didn’t set out to combine two existing devices – the tablet and the laptop. We had a vision for how we could take the best elements of each to create something entirely new. To find that perfect intersection of hardware and software that unlocks a more intuitive way to work and create. We faced some skepticism, but ultimately a new category was born that drove growth for the PC industry. More than that, behaviors started to change. People’s eyes were opened to the idea that touch shouldn’t be just for tablets [ more… ]
