It is difficult to integrate modern cloud architectures with services that require IP whitelisting. Whether you deploy to a PaaS or your own cloud infrastructure, your application instances are likely ephemeral. With load-balancing, autoscaling, and dynamic request routing (whether handled by a PaaS or your own system), your application makes requests from an unpredictable and impermanent set of IP addresses. With Fixie, it's easy to route outbound requests through a set of static IP addresses.
Fixie subscribers make requests from a fixed set of static IP addresses, making it possible to integrate your cloud-hosted application with services behind corporate firewalls.
Each fixie subscriber is assigned a load-balanced cluster of Fixie servers, allowing us to maximize uptime and intelligently distribute your traffic.
Fixie provides you with a standard Proxy URL, so it is easy to integrate with your codebase, regardless of your language/framework choice.
Fixie provides solutions for making HTTP and HTTPS requests from static IPs, as well as solutions for establishing database connections and other lower-level TCP connections.
Fixie's HTTP proxy supports HTTP requests and secure HTTPS requests via an HTTP tunnel. Fixie's HTTP proxy is standards-compliant and is natively supported by request libraries for every popular language.
Fixie Socks provides a standard SOCKS V5 proxy. Fixie Socks can be used to establish lower-level TCP connections. Common use cases include database connections, SSH, and FTP via your static Fixie IPs.
