Quotes From Members

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

Pros
"The initial setup is pretty easy. Deployment only takes five minutes.""The technical support is very strong. We've had issues with the solution and configuration and we got very good support.""This solution is useful for making new APIs.""This solution gives you a unified way to have your API accessed.""In terms of most valuable features, it would say that it is really easy to start working with it.""Its security feature is the most valuable because it is mainly a security solution. It has easy authentication and authorization, and its integration is also useful.""It's easy to integrate and provide support for existing AWS services if I use the AWS API gateway."

"I have not encountered instability with the product.""I have found the most valuable features to be tracing a proxy, and managing proxy versions and revisions via the Edge UI component.""The ease of creating policies has been the most useful of the solution's features. It's a quick ramp-up time. It's easy for our support staff to implement the policies in the API management layer.""It's a good return on my investment.""Tracing in Apigee is a very good feature.""There are just a lot of security features in general.""Anyone with basic knowledge can build an API.""The most valuable features are scalability and technical support."

Cons
"Like most Amazon services, and this one's the same, you're expected to effectively do your own support, and any other support is by emails, so it's quite limited.""It's hard to configure. There's a lot of options but it's very hard, it's very confusing.""There should be more videos and documentation about the new features that are released every month.""The only real problem is that you have to know a lot about what is outside of the API gateway in order to make the best use of it.""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.""The user interface, in general, can be better. The user interface for the entire Amazon cloud can be more friendly. There are some scenarios that are not really easy to manage and configure through the user interface.""I am not completely satisfied with Technical Support."

More Amazon API Gateway Cons »

"Apigee on premise is quite complex and it is always moving faster.""Drag and drop of features would be more beneficial, rather than manually working on the configuration and updates.""The company needs to better support webhooks. It used to support webhooks and their policies and they have since stopped. They had some issues in the product and they abandoned the support for them. It's not come back since.""The number one area this solution could be improved is by implementing support. Support is not a part of this solution.""As it is now, the rotation of certificates is a manual task and is something that can be improved.""I see some lagging in regards to integration capacity""Apigee is demanding on the infrastructure so the setup cost is very high for an on-premises deployment.""Better functionality for validating inputs and outputs would be helpful."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"This is a pay-per-use service, where you only pay for what you use."

"The cost of the licensing is based on the number of API calls that are made.""It is not suited for small companies. It's expensive.""It is more expensive when you compare to open-source products or other vendors.""We have a contract for three years. I don't know the cost."

Overview

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.

Apigee Edge, the self-service API management platform, enables companies to secure, scale, manage, and analyze their digital business, and grow API programs to meet the increase in demand. Edge enables enterprises to design and build the APIs that securely share their services and data.

Key capabilities of the Apigee Edge API management platform include:

  • Security: protect APIs, messages, and backends with configurable policies such as OAuth, API key verification, XML/JSON threat protection, access control.
  • API gateway: secure and mediate the traffic between clients and backends, and between a company’s APIs and the developers, customers, partners, and employees who use the APIs.
  • Developer portal: attract and engage application developers, enabling them to discover, explore, purchase (or profit from), and test APIs and register to access and use the APIs.
  • API lifecycle management: manage the process of designing, developing, publishing, deploying, and versioning APIs.
