Forum Sentry is provided in various virtual form factors that facilitate microservice deployments where the computing environments are often virtual or cloud-based.
Forum Sentry can operate as a standard enterprise-class API Security Gateway at the data boundary perimeter, or as a microservice gateway at the dev/ops application tier.
With microservice deployments, the instances of Forum Sentry are typically mutable and are spun up and down on-demand. These elastic deployments often utilize the Forum Sentry License Server for flexible sharing of licenses.
