Amazon API Gateway Reviews

Here are some stack decisions, common use cases and reviews by companies and developers who chose Amazon API Gateway in their tech stack.

Amazon API Gateway
AWS Secrets Manager
Amazon VPC
AWS Lambda

I use AWS Lambda because it is the most mature of the major cloud platforms for serverless functions. The fact that you can add VPC configs at the start is huge from a security perspective. However, it does take a lot of work to configure the Amazon VPC to work with AWS Secrets Manager and Lambda. It's also nice because it works so well with Amazon API Gateway

I typically use it to connect with databases to insert and extract information for downstream analytics.

I won't be surprised if one day the majority of workloads run on this service. Not having to manage and maintain infrastructure is truly a blessing.

Amazon API Gateway

API Gateway in conjunction with Lambda has allowed us to become 'serverless'. We have a number of API endpoints that range from simple CRUD operations, through to triggering chains of complex background jobs. Like Lambda, this service has released us from getting bogged down in infrastructure management, freeing up huge amounts of time to focus on solving business problems. Amazon API Gateway
