Amazon API Gateway

API GW is great for giving access to asynchronous operations that are fast and don't need to be online all the time. Lambda functions are the classic example. In the past, an operation that is called on via an HTTP endpoint would be implemented using a server-based solution. With high availability in place that would include a server or two and a load balancer. Over time this setup can be costly, especially if the service is not used at full capacity; cycles are wasted when the servers are sitting there waiting to respond.If the operation can be distilled down to a function, an API GW + Lambda solution could be put in place that performs the operation as needed only when requested. Comparing the low price point for API GW requests and Lambda CPU+Memory, the savings can be night and day over the server-based implementation.

Talend ESB

Recommended for:
  1. Multiple systems to interface for a task in the company (example: to sell an item your POS must communicate with the inventory software, then to accounting, then to service, etc).
  2. When a task must bring information from several external services.
  3. When you have to deal with multiple APIs.
Not recommended for:
  1. Data transformation (although Talend has a software for that that works with Talend ESB)

Pros

Amazon API Gateway

  • 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.

Talend ESB

  • Up to 900 connectors included in the license with no extra cost
  • Graphical UI to develop the Web Services
  • You can begin with the community version to evaluate or start implementing a very uncomplicated ESB
  • The Talend ESB Admin Control is very powerful with dashboards and reports to keep your IF working smoothly

Cons

Amazon API Gateway

  • I think there should be another way of enabling CORS. It basically creates OPTIONS for every endpoint, which makes your API Gateway look complicated.
  • The integration timeout limit is 30 seconds, which limits you into that time.
  • API Gateway UI should be improved and should work correctly when more than two people are adding/editing endpoints.

Talend ESB

  • You have to log in to each module separately
  • 900 connectors is a lot, but if you have a custom app to interface, you have to develop your connector

We always had a great experience with the AWS support team. They were always on time and very dependable. It was a good partnership while we worked to resolve our issues.

Alternatives Considered

Amazon API Gateway

When we tested Azure API Management at the time, it had serious connectivity issues, it was very unstable, and it needed to do a lot using the command line. Comparing with the AWS solution, which was more mature, and the fact that we have services in use on AWS, we ended up choosing to continue using AWS products. This so as not to run the risk of increasing latency in accesses, and of some functionality not working, due to being developed yet.

Talend ESB

  • First, it is a lot of cheaper than the closest competitor.
  • Second, Talend ESB is in the same league as other stronger brands.
  • Third, the functions and modules are a 360 solution to implement an ESB.
Talend has a different approach to license since it is based on programmers and run times, not to users of cores.

Return on Investment

Amazon API Gateway

  • ROI is negative, you need either to hire them to work with you or spend days/weeks to figure out issues.
  • For some of the projects in the end it is not worth it, it is just a "buzz" to use serverless but not practical.
  • Service is easy to set up authorization and it is easy to manage.

Talend ESB

  • Considerably cheaper than oracle service bus
  • As I said before, you can run a POC using the community version of Talend Studio.
  • Built from Open Source/ well-proven technologies, and a big community to support those technologies.
