Amazon API Gateway vs AWS Service Catalog: What are the differences?

What is Amazon API Gateway? Create, publish, maintain, monitor, and secure APIs at any scale. 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.

What is AWS Service Catalog? Create and manage catalogs of IT services that are approved for use on AWS. AWS Service Catalog allows IT administrators to create, manage, and distribute catalogs of approved products to end users, who can then access the products they need in a personalized portal. Administrators can control which users have access to each application or AWS resource to enforce compliance with organizational business policies. AWS Service Catalog allows your organization to benefit from increased agility and reduced costs because end users can find and launch only the products they need from a catalog that you control.

Amazon API Gateway and AWS Service Catalog are primarily classified as "API" and "Cloud Access Management" tools respectively.

Some of the features offered by Amazon API Gateway are:

  • Build, Deploy and Manage APIs
  • Resiliency
  • API Lifecycle Management
