How do you create APIs? When publishing a new API there are a lot of factors to consider: Versioning, Network Management, Authorization, Ecosystem Management, and finally client SDKs.
Amazon API Gateway is a fully managed service that makes it easy for developers to publish, maintain, monitor, and secure APIs at any scale. With Amazon API Gateway, you can quickly declare an API interface and connect it to existing web services running on Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) or code running on AWS Lambda, and generate an SDK for client applications to access the API. Amazon API Gateway handles all the tasks involved in accepting and processing up to hundreds of thousands of concurrent API calls, including traffic management, authorization and access control, monitoring, and API version management. Amazon API Gateway has no minimum fees or startup costs, and you pay only for the API calls you receive and the amount of data transferred.
