Fully managed gateway for serverless workloads

With API Gateway, you can create, secure, and monitor APIs for Google Cloud serverless back ends, including Cloud Functions, Cloud Run, and App Engine. Built on Envoy, API Gateway gives you high performance, scalability, and the freedom to focus on building great apps. Consumption-based and tiered pricing means you can better manage cost.

Security and visibility 

API Gateway’s built-in mechanisms, including authentication and key validation, help protect services published online. Gain visibility into your APIs through monitoring, alerting, logging, and tracing services.

The API Gateway makes easy work out of managing all the API calls to our serverless backends. We had challenges with scaling and consolidation of different API call types prior to implementing the API Gateway; not only have we resolved the issues, but we've experienced a 10x improvement in API management by using a single platform that is easily accessible through the cloud console and fully managed by Google Cloud.
