When you have multiple API applications, Amazon API Gateway can serve as both your front end and your middleware. When you have microservices, for example, you can run Amazon API Gateway with Kubernetes. It can also build out the requests. We also have the serverless application being hosted in Lambda. Lambda is an AWS resource that we use Amazon API Gateway with when we have received a request. It redirects the traffic to that particular request.

We use Amazon API Gateway to compliment or to put a security facade on top of your current APIs.

We use it for API routing and managing traffic. These are managed authentications between the API and back to primary users.

I use AWS API Management and Mulesoft because I work on different solutions and I am in a different layer, because I most focused on backend solutions. I have participated in some projects using these tools but I am not a developer or an expert. We have designed and implemented RESTful API's. For example, based on Microservices with Spring Boot and AKS or OpenShift.

We are currently using this solution in a project that we are implementing for a public service organization. It is a content management system that will be able to do things like rate monitoring. The service will have good security and availability. This is a cloud-based deployment with Lambda Integration.
