Unlocking the Power of APIs with Apigee: Building, Managing, and Protecting APIs at Scale

Category:Programming Tags : 

What is Apigee?

Apigee is a powerful native API management platform from Google Cloud that allows you to build, manage, and protect APIs in any environment or scale. With Apigee, you can create a consistent and reliable interface for your backend services using high-performance API proxies. These proxies give you detailed control over security, rate limiting, quotas, statistics, and much more for all your services.

What does Apigee offer?

Apigee provides an API proxy layer that sits between your backend services and internal or external clients looking to use your services. This proxy layer allows you to add a wide variety of policies to add security, traffic management, data mediation, extensions, and other functions to your APIs. Additionally, you can add custom code, conditional logic, fault handling, rate limiting, caching, and many other actions. All of this can be done without modifying the underlying backend services.

Who uses Apigee?

Apigee is designed to benefit two key types of users:

  1. API producers: Those who compile and manage the APIs that expose their backend services.
  2. API consumers: Those who use the data provided by the APIs in their client applications.

What are the challenges they face?

API producers face challenges such as security, visibility, and measurement parameters, while API consumers face challenges such as flexibility, ease of use, and reliability.

What are the key benefits of using Apigee?

Apigee’s API management offers features specifically designed to meet the needs of API producers and consumers. These benefits include API visibility, API statistics, and API reliability.
