Amazon API Gateway

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.

Low Cost and Efficient

With Amazon API Gateway, you pay only for calls made to your APIs and data transfer out. There are no minimum fees or upfront commitments.

Performance at any Scale

With Amazon CloudFront integration, API Gateway allows you to take advantage of the worldwide network of edge locations to provide your end users with the lowest possible latency for API requests and responses. Amazon API Gateway also helps you manage traffic through throttling, so that back-end operations can withstand traffic spikes. Additionally, Amazon API Gateway helps you improve the performance of your APIs by caching the output of API calls to avoid calling your backend systems unnecessarily.

Easily Monitor API Activity

After your API is deployed, Amazon API Gateway provides you with a dashboard to visually monitor calls to your services using Amazon CloudWatch, so you see performance metrics and information on API calls, data latency, and error rates.

Streamline API Development

Amazon API Gateway lets you simultaneously run multiple versions of the same API, allowing you to quickly iterate, test, and release new versions.

Flexible Security Controls

API Gateway provides you with tools to authorize access to your APIs and control service operation access. You can use AWS administration and security tools, such as AWS Identity and Access Management (IAM) and Amazon Cognito, to authorize access to your APIs. Amazon API Gateway can verify signed API calls on your behalf using the same technology AWS uses for its own APIs. If you already use OAuth tokens or other authorization mechanisms, Amazon API Gateway can use AWS Lambda to execute a Lambda authorizer to help you verify incoming requests.

Run your APIs Without Servers

Amazon API Gateway tightly integrates with AWS Lambda to allow you to create completely serverless APIs. With Amazon API Gateway, you create REST APIs that your mobile and web applications can use to call publicly available AWS services through your code running in AWS Lambda. AWS Lambda runs your code on a high-availability compute infrastructure and performs all the heavy lifting and administration of your compute resources.

Create Restful API Endpoints for Existing Services

With Amazon API Gateway, you can create modern resource based APIs, and then use the dynamic and flexible data transformation capabilities to generate the requests in the language your target services expect. API Gateway also helps you protect your existing services by setting throttling rules to avoid overwhelming your back-end infrastructure during unpredictable traffic spikes.
