API and Microservices Management Benchmark
Application programming interfaces, or APIs, are a ubiquitous method and de facto standard of communication among modern information technologies. The information ecosystems within large companies and complex organizations encompass a vast array of applications and systems, many of which have turned to APIs for exchanging data as the glue that holds these heterogeneous artifacts together. APIs have begun to replace older, more cumbersome methods of information sharing with lightweight, loosely-coupled microservices.
In this report, we reveal the results of performance testing we completed on two API and Microservices Management platforms: Kong Enterprise and Google Cloud Apigee X.
