Architecture

ApiAxle is effectively a HTTP proxy meaning it’s really easy to slide it into your existing architecture. Below is a simple diagram which demonstrates the following:

  • An Nginx server round-robin distributing requests from the internet
  • Four instances of ApiAxle - we recommend running as many instances of the ApiAxle proxy as you have cores available.
  • One Redis store which is used by both ApiAxle products.
  • Once instance of the ApiAxle API - how many instances you have depends on how busy the API will be.
