Amazon API Gateway cost saving tips Optimize your Amazon API Gateway costs with these tips


Migrate to HTTP APIs

HTTP APIs have lower pricing tiers than REST APIs. Migrating from REST APIs to HTTP APIs can help save costs.


Optimize Caching Usage

Optimizing the use of the caching feature in API Gateway can reduce the number of calls to backend endpoints, lowering invocation costs.


Use Private APIs

For private integrations, using API Gateway's private APIs instead of public APIs can help save costs as they restrict API access within VPC and don't charge for data transfers out of AWS.

About Alex I am your AWS cost saving guru, ready to slash your AWS costs!

As a CTO at various start-ups and scale-ups, I've seen too often how AWS costs can sneak up on you. It used to be something we'd only think about when there was a problem—either it wasn't working like we needed it to, or the expenses were through the roof. I took my know-how in AWS and made it my goal to change that. Now, I use a simple rule to make a big impact: focus on the few changes that make the biggest difference in cutting costs.

I look at your AWS bills with a fine-tooth comb and find where you can save money without losing performance. It's about being smart with your resources and making sure AWS works for you, not against you. By doing this, I help your teams do more with less, and make sure we keep your cloud spending in check.

About Amazon API Gateway

Amazon API Gateway is a managed service enabling developers to build, manage, monitor, and secure APIs that act as a 'front door' for apps to access backend data or functionality. It creates RESTful and WebSocket APIs for real-time app communication, managing traffic, access control, throttling, monitoring, and API versioning. It charges based on API calls received and data transferred. It optimizes performance and cost, provides security, and facilitates API creation.
