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."

More Amazon API Gateway 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."

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.

Tyk is an open source API Gateway that is fast and scalable, an API management platform featuring an API gateway, analytics, developer portal and dashboard. Available in three flavours to best suit your architecture and governance. We offer full cloud or on-premises options, and the best of both worlds with our unique hybrid model. www.tyk.io
