vivo faces several challenges, including the management of complex business scenarios and system maintenance. With the company's rapid growth, there are multiple scenarios and systems to manage, requiring a unified approach.
Interactions between the data plane and control plane are also a challenge for medium and large-sized companies like vivo. Even minor issues in the data plane can impact the control plane.
vivo lacks support for multi-dimensional resources, resulting in various domain names and URLs. This creates challenges for the business department when searching for resources according to different dimensions.
vivo's complex projects can have an uncontrollable impact when problems arise. The use of complicated plugins exacerbates this issue.
vivo introduced Apache APISIX as its API gateway, customizing its architecture to enable traffic access and mixed deployment. Internal DevOps platforms and business deployment services were connected for quick and automatic traffic access, and APISIX cluster management was implemented, along with improved monitoring construction.
Drawing from API7's use cases in the automotive industry, Lotus Cars utilizes API7 Enterprise to manage core traffic, accelerate product delivery, and optimize time to market, all while reducing manpower and saving costs.
APISIX helped us greatly improve service quality under active-active architecture. Its complete monitoring feature has effectively supported troubleshooting, and updating the service list has become very simple.
APISIX meets our requirement on speeding development and iteration. What distinguishes APISIX is its rich plugins, visible configuration, fine-grained verification, abundant features, active community, and high performance.
