API Gateways are widely considered to be the backbone of Microservices. An API Gateway takes API requests from a client and determines what services are required. Then, it routes them to the appropriate microservice to be carried out. In simple terms, API Gateways do all the work and make Microservices viable. An API Gateway organizes requests sent to the microservices architecture and contributes in creating a rather simplified experience for the user. In doing so, it achieves simplicity, both in client implementations and microservices apps by reducing the number of back and forth trips to retrieve data.
It is of critical importance to select the right API Gateway for your MIcroservice architecture, in order to avoid unnecessary overheads and complexity. We have been experimenting with quite some API Gateways available in the market to see which ones suit what kinds of needs.
