            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.

            It provides me with POST endpoints; I don't run servers and some third-party services need to POST data to my application.

            Excellent API Gateway, some quirks but most are being addressed over time, easy integration with Lambda
