Full Lifecycle API Management
API Gateway, Ingress Controller, etc.
Apache APISIX provides rich traffic management features like Load Balancing, Dynamic Upstream, Canary Release, Circuit Breaking, Authentication, Observability, etc.
Building for large-scale, high value systems
Apache APISIX provides open source API Gateway to help you manage microservices, delivering the ultimate performance, security, and scalable platform for all your APIs and microservices.
Why APISIX Gateway?
Reduce time fighting bugs, focus on designing world-class systems with API Gateway
Apache APISIX is the first open-source API Gateway that includes a built-in low-code Dashboard, which offers a powerful and flexible UI for developers to use.
The Apache APISIX dashboard is flexible to User demand, providing option to create custom modules through code matching your requirements, alongside the existing no-code toolchain.
No need to reinvent the wheel again and again. Use inbuilt plugins to create high performance systems in tight deadlines. For something custom, there is option of building custom plugins.
Apache APISIX Gateway uses radixtree-route-matching and etcd under the hood to provide you the ability to create high speed synchronized systems. From routing to built-in plugins, all these are designed and implemented to be uber performant with the minimum latency possible.
Shield against the malicious
Apache APISIX Gateway provides multiple security plugins for identity authentication and API verification, including CORS, JWT, Key Auth, OpenID Connect (OIDC), Keycloak, etc. We put stability and security first. For more information, check here.
Scalability and availability
Scales with your users
Apache APISIX Gateway provides the ability to write your own custom plugins, use custom Load Balancing Algorithms during the balancer phase for scaling and custom Routing algorithms for fine control on routing.
Save dev-time, design what matters
As API Gateway, Apache APISIX provides Hot updates and Hot plugins, which continuously update configurations without restarts, saving development time and stress. In addition, health checks, circuit breakers, and many more features keep the system balanced.
Multi-platform and protocol
Create once, run anywhere
Platform agnostic, no vendor lock-in. Apache APISIX as API Management solution, can run from bare-metal to Kubernetes. It supports HTTP to gRPC transcoding, websockets, gRPC, Dubbo, MQTT proxy and multiple platforms including ARM64, don't worry about the lock-in of the infra technology.
Among the best, and always improving
Apache APISIX Gateway is open source and ever-evolving. Here's a general comparison of APISIX with other API Gateway options, choose your right API Gateway.
|Feature||APISIX||Other API Gateways|
|Single-core CPU, QPS (enable limit-count and prometheus plugins)||18000||~1700|
|Latency||0.2 ms||2 ms|
|Dubbo, MQTT, Tengine and REST API to gRPC transcoding|
|Custom Load Balancing and routing|
|Plugin hot loading|
|Support any NGINX variable as routing condition|
