We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"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."
"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."
"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."
"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."
Pricing and Cost Advice
"This is a pay-per-use service, where you only pay for what you use."
"The price is low compared to other products of a similar type."
"There are different versions and plans available depending on the requirements, so there is flexibility in terms of the pricing."

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.
