Challenges

  • 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.

Solution

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.

The API7 solution supports Layer 4 and Layer 7 protocols.

High performance enables vivo to handle significant online traffic.

Rich features allow vivo to migrate projects conveniently.

The API7 solution based on APISIX has great scalability to help vivo extend cluster management.
