Amazon API Gateway

Amazon API Gateway is a very powerful tool, particularly for small engineering teams. It is ideal for rapidly developing microservices when used in conjunction with the Serverless framework and AWS Lambda. It is also great when used as a conventional API gateway that provides authentication and routing over microservices. It would not be useful for exposing a monolithic application.

Oracle API Manager

Oracle API Manager is well suited in a business or company that make use of Apis to facilitate access of backend services and data sources by the staff or customers or both. It is also imported in situations where all actions in a system need to be attributed to specific users.

Pros

  • API Gateway integrates well with AWS Lambda. This allows us to build a web server in the language and framework of our choice, deploy it as a Lambda function, and expose it through API Gateway.
  • API Gateway manages API keys. Building rate limiting and request quota features are not trivial (or interesting).
  • API Gateway's pricing can be very attractive for services that are accessed infrequently.

Cons

  • API Gateway introduces some concepts, such as Stages and Integration Requests, that are foreign to most developers. The documentation hints in the Console help, but sometimes these concepts are not transferred to frameworks like Serverless.
  • Systems that use API Gateway may behave differently in end-to-end tests in local or CI environments.
  • Navigating the Console can be confusing.
  • It could be easier to codify API Gateway configurations.

Alternatives Considered

Nginx is a powerful tool but configuring, running and maintaining but Nginx will never be a competitive advantage for our business. API Gateway is powerful because it is managed and does what we need out-of-the-box. Nginx is used more widely in the community; it may be easier to find developers with Nginx experience.

Return on Investment

  • API Gateway has positively impacted our business by increasing the stability of our services. It is easy to implement rate limiting and horizontal scaling with API Gateway; this helps us to deliver highly-available services.
  • API Gateway has increased our developer's productivity because they can delegate the management of web services to AWS. They can focus on features instead of Nginx configurations.
  • API Gateway makes access control easy, which makes securing our services easier.
