With Apigee hybrid, you have the power to choose where to host that API traffic—on-premises, Google Cloud, or hybrid. With an enterprise-grade hybrid gateway, embrace an API-first approach across all facets of your business with the flexibility of hybrid deployment.

Manage and scale with ease

For scalable, secure management of the API runtime deployment, Apigee hybrid runtime is containerized. With the resource efficiency and automated operations of GKE, the API runtime is easy to manage and scale.


Customer-managed runtime plane

Host, manage, and control the runtime plane on Kubernetes on-premises or in a cloud-managed Kubernetes provider. The runtime plane processes your API traffic, leaving you in control of runtime components such as key management system, OAuth, and certificates.

Apigee management plane

Leverage the API lifecycle management features of Apigee for your APIs, all hosted and managed by Google Cloud. With periodic synchronization between the two planes, proxies, products, shared flows, and other runtime-specific configurations will always be up to date.

Integrated services

Apigee hybrid integrates with Google Cloud services including Identity and Access Management (IAM), GCP resource hierarchy and service accounts, and Stackdriver.
