Google Cloud Endpoints vs Mashape: What are the differences?
Developers describe Google Cloud Endpoints as "Develop, deploy and manage APIs on any Google Cloud backend". An NGINX-based proxy and distributed architecture give unparalleled performance and scalability. Using an Open API Specification or one of our API frameworks, Cloud Endpoints gives you the tools you need for every phase of API development and provides insight with Google Cloud Monitoring, Cloud Trace, Google Cloud Logging and Cloud Trace. On the other hand, Mashape is detailed as "Open Source API Platform for a Cloud Native World". Kong is a scalable, open source API Layer (also known as an API Gateway, or API Middleware). Kong controls layer 4 and 7 traffic and is extended through Plugins, which provide extra functionality and services beyond the core platform.
Google Cloud Endpoints can be classified as a tool in the "API Tools" category, while Mashape is grouped under "API Hub and Management".
