What are Amazon API Gateways?
Amazon API Gateways are an Amazon AWS cloud-native service that allow developers to create, manage, and secure APIs to be managed and used with AWS cloud-native services. For those who are somewhat new to APIs, an API or An Application Programming Interface simply facilitates the communication between unique approved applications. A good way to quickly understand APIs is to think of them like the waiter in a restaurant supporting transactions or facilitating communication between the kitchen, the bar and the tables.
To build on this concept, Amazon API Gateways are AWS cloud-native gateways that act as a bridge between on-premise applications and AWS cloud-native services or customer-created custom applications, where APIs can communicate seamlessly between these endpoints via the AWS API Gateway. Using the AWS API Gateway, users can establish two-way communication with support of both RESTful and WEBSOCKET APIs to unique applications that support on-premises workloads.
