How has it helped my organization?

This solution gives you end-to-end protection in what you're able to do. This includes a certificate base, TLS from endpoints, and you can protect the whole link. It will generate certificate keys for you.

What needs improvement?

One of the problems with using this solution is that you have to know a lot about the Amazon ecosystem, in terms of services, to be able to use it. For example, if you use it without the Web Application Firewall then you're going to get… more »

What other advice do I have?

I have heard complaints that people say this product does not have good security, but that is not true. There is an expectation that you can use it with other Amazon services to provide security, as well as other functionality. This is a… more »

What is most valuable?

In terms of the most valuable features, it would say that it is really easy to start working with it. I'm fine with the interface. It's okay. I think it also is really useful with the pay per-use. The cost is interesting.

What needs improvement?

It would be useful to have a more complete development environment for the developer, with different integrative capabilities to manage all the life cycles for the API. I think the full version formula for that is really useful. They should improve the development environment for easier integration.

What other advice do I have?

The advice that I would give others regarding Amazon API is that it depends on the use cases. If they have a complex environment, they need to consider different integration patterns. It could be that AWS Management is not enough for them. They would have to compliment it with another solution. It… more »

I was looking for information regarding AWS API gateway and MuleSoft because I am looking for some different arguments to put on the table for a comparative for a customer. In my opinion MuleSoft is a tool that lets you to manage all the life cycles for the API. I think it's a more complete… more »

What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature is the ease of managing the gateway. This solution is useful for making new APIs. We deploy with CloudFormation, so it's pretty easy to use.

What needs improvement?

The way they manage the headers could be improved and made easier. There are some certificates that they will not let us use. I would like to see the web console improved. There should be more videos… more »

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

This is a pay-per-use service, where you only pay for what you use.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

We did not use another cloud solution prior to this one. However, we did use an on-premises API gateway from CA Technologies. It is a very capable solution, but it is more expensive and we also had to… more »

What other advice do I have?

My advice to anybody who is implementing this solution is to first read the documentation and follow the steps. Make a use case, create a proof of concept, and then migrate it to production… more »

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We had our on-premises solution, and we also evaluated Apigee from Google. Ultimately, we felt that AWS, for our use case, was the best option. The main reasons are the ease of use and pricing.

What needs improvement?

You can code anything and hook it on to it but it doesn't give you stuff out of the box like the other gateways give you. You can do anything with it because you just attach a LAN to it and it will do anything, but that's to the custodian. You know you're not using the power of the gateway. It's… more »

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

We used something else, but Amazon is more powerful. We moved to the cloud.

What other advice do I have?

I would rate this solution a five out of 10. If there was a better configuration, I'd give it a higher score.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We didn't evaluate any other options before choosing this current solution.

What is most valuable?

The ability to proxy has been the most valuable feature.

What needs improvement?

The pricing could be better. Also, possibly better technical support services or possibly just more documentation to assist users.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

The pricing can always get better, but it's pretty reasonable and it's a pay as you go model.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

We didn't previously use a different solution.

What other advice do I have?

The user interface is easy enough to use. I don't really have any complaints about it. In terms of advice for implementing and using, I would say you should make sure you've got good internal skills… more »

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We evaluated Dell Boomi and we looked at Informatica.

What is Amazon API Gateway?

Amazon API Gateway is a fully managed service that makes it easy for developers to create, publish, maintain, monitor, and secure APIs at any scale. With a few clicks in the AWS Management Console, you can create an API that acts as a "front door" for applications to access data, business logic, or functionality from your back-end services, such as workloads running on Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2), code running on AWS Lambda, or any Web application.
