Overall Satisfaction with Amazon API Gateway

Our team develops several APIs for multiple end-users to consume. These are both internal and external customers. Our services are behind the Amazon API Gateway. This helps in securing our APIs and also helps curtail misuse of our APIs by bad actors. Thus Amazon API Gateway is helping us a great deal as we put a lot of the administration efforts within the gateway itself instead of our code.
  • Amazon API Gateway is helping us a great deal as we put a lot of the administration efforts within the gateway itself instead of our code.

  • Easy to change headers without much work from the developers.

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