Pricing is better at Amazon API gateway. Amazon API gateway is more user-friendly than SAP HANA Cloud. But SAP HANA Cloud supports more programming languages. The centralized management and monitoring system of Amazon API Gateway is more user-friendly. The User-Interface of Amazon API gateway is also better. Overall we can conclude that Amazon API Gateway provides a better work experience than SAP HANA.

Our organization uses AWS infrastructure for many projects across different business units so we choose Amazon API Gateway for initial web services development. After exploring all features especially integration with other Amazon services like Lamda and Cloud watch we chose to continue with Amazon API Gateway. The billing is very competitive with other vendors as it is server less.

I have reviewed NGINX, Kong, and Azure API Management. While very capable, NGINX and Kong are server-based implementations; my team would prefer not to have another cluster of servers to manage. Having a managed service in API GW is preferable.

While Azure API Management is also a comparable product, the teams I support are heavily invested in AWS making the use of API GW much more approachable.

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.

Our primary architecture is AWS, so we selected [Amazon] API Gateway as our gateway solution. While Apigee and SwaggerHub provide great solutions for service orchestration, [Amazon] API Gateway provided the best integrations with our web services which were mostly running within AWS behind AWS load balancers. [Amazon] API Gateway could also act as a trigger for a set of AWS Lambda functions that we were using for small task APIs.

Compared to other solutions, Azure is much easier to use and setup, but probably for hybrid solution Talend API in the cloud is the best solution and Talend API can take advantage of Amazon API Gateway, thus all this hard work is done by other software solution. Additionally, Talend API integrates better with on-prem solutions compared to Amazon API Gateway. Most companies that have been historically on-prem will be hard to simply integrate with the latest and the greatest technology in AWS. AWS was more design for companies starting from scratch and they always tell you "oh that is easy to integrate, no problem, 5 minutes, 3 clicks...", but in the end, it is another sales pitch because they don't know/understand on-prem environments.

I feel there is no competition to Amazon API Gateway when it comes to evaluating the cost and ease of use.

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.

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.
