(The Hosting News) – Amazon Web Services Inc. (AWS), an Amazon.com company (NASDAQ: AMZN), today announced Amazon API Gateway, a new fully managed service that makes it easy for AWS customers to create, publish, maintain, monitor, and secure Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) at any scale. With a few clicks in the AWS Management Console, customers can create an API that acts as a “front door” for applications to access data, business logic, or functionality from their “back-end” services, such as workloads running on Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2), or code running on AWS Lambda. Amazon API Gateway handles all of the tasks associated with accepting and processing billions of daily API calls, including traffic management, authorization and access control, monitoring, and API version management. Amazon API Gateway has no minimum fees or startup costs, and developers pay only for the API calls they receive and the amount of data transferred out.

“Building and running rock-solid APIs at massive scale is a significant challenge for customers. And yet, this is one of the most important ingredients for building and operating modern applications that are consumed through multiple devices”
