Akamai's API Gateway solves the challenges of scale and agility introduced by traditional solutions. For your developers to build and deploy services globally, you need a solution for authentication, authorization and consumption management that scales effortlessly with API demand. The unique API Gateway architecture distributes governance logic to the Edge, helping with API service adoption for high availability without concern for scaling the infrastructure supporting a traditional gateway.
Easily handle planned and unplanned traffic spikes, regardless of source or duration. No need to replicate gateway infrastructure everywhere your clients will be.
The Akamai Intelligent Edge Platform maps requests to an optimal edge server close to the API consumer and offloads your origin infrastructure to provide uninterrupted service.
Innovate faster and empower decentralized teams to build, deploy, and manage APIs independently. Reduce the cost and operational overhead of managing a dedicated cloud infrastructure.
Throttling and Quota Management
Easily manage API traffic globally to ensure consumers behave the way you intend and ensure fairness of access.
Global Authentication and Authorization
Reduce network delays with support for all common mechanisms from API keys, JWT, and OAuth 2.0 at the Edge.
API Response Caching
Caching for both RESTful and (uniquely) GraphQL query responses.
Easily troubleshoot problems with API traffic deployed on the Akamai platform.
Availability and scale
The Akamai Intelligent Edge Platform is a massively distributed platform where every Edge location serves as an API Gateway.
Work the way you want, using admin API, a command-line interface, and Swagger/RAML to easily onboard your APIs.
