API Gateway

What is it?

This API hosting service helps enterprises build, manage, and deploy Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) at any scale.

Main differences between dedicated and shared gateways

  • API Gateway offers a shared gateway and dedicated gateways. You can use the shared gateway from the start or purchase dedicated gateways to manage the APIs.
  • Dedicated gateways facilitate the decoupling of internal systems within an enterprise. Services deployed in VPCs communicate with each other through RESTful APIs with high network security. Dedicated gateways support the deployment of front-end or back-end services on public networks, and these services are accessed using Elastic IPs (EIPs).
Item Shared Gateway Dedicated Gateway
Network access Based on API calls. Based on gateway specifications and usage duration.
Network access APIs are accessed over public networks. Gateways run in VPCs. APIs in a VPC are called using the subnet address of the VPC.
You can enable access to API resources in a gateway over public networks or access to resources on public networks through APIs in a gateway.
Target users Small enterprises that have low physical isolation requirements and want to selectively expose API capabilities. Large and medium enterprises that want to selectively expose and call internal APIs. Dedicated gateways are deployed in physically isolated clusters with different bandwidths for inbound and outbound access.
