Quotes From Members

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
"It's good that they aren't adding a lot of features like ESP, etc. It's okay with just being a gateway.""The most valuable features are the gateway and security features."

More 3scale API Management Pros »

"The feature I find most valuable is that this solution allows us to manage our security.""It is a good product for API management.""The most valuable feature is the load balancing with the circuit-breaker function."

Cons
"I believe the CMS part of it has room for improvement though. That is where you write a couple of things if you want to publish your API. It's based on liquid scripting, which doesn't seem like the obvious ones to script with.""It would be helpful to improve the customization features so that the customer can do it based on their own needs."

More 3scale API Management Cons »

"I would like to see some additional features like having some extensions for .NET core because we use it for our back-end language.""It is a young product and does not have the kind of brand recognition that would make it a more popular solution with our clients.""Sometimes when new features are released, they are not immediately stable."
