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.

For smaller organizations, I think this is would be a good tool. For large enterprise organizations, WS02 API Manager is likely not the best fit.

Alternatives Considered

Amazon API Gateway

As AWS API comes with more security and API key authentication functions, it's easy for the organization to handle the various customers based with different level of permission. And also very easy comparable to others for tracking the API calls. Also, scalability and reliability are major points to consider for AWS API gateway.
