Amazon API Gateway vs OpenAPI Specification: What are the differences?

Developers describe Amazon API Gateway as "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. On the other hand, OpenAPI Specification is detailed as "An API description format for REST APIs". It defines a standard, language-agnostic interface to RESTful APIs which allows both humans and computers to discover and understand the capabilities of the service without access to source code, documentation, or through network traffic inspection.

Amazon API Gateway and OpenAPI Specification belong to "API Tools" category of the tech stack.

Intuit, Repro, and Zumba are some of the popular companies that use Amazon API Gateway, whereas OpenAPI Specification is used by Medidata Solutions, Kapten, and Unmetric. Amazon API Gateway has a broader approval, being mentioned in 170 company stacks & 65 developers stacks; compared to OpenAPI Specification, which is listed in 22 company stacks and 8 developer stacks.
