About WSO2 API Manager

WSO2 API Manager is the first 100% open source API management product to combine easy, managed API access with full API governance and analysis. As the first API management product to offer an API Store, it lets IT organizations set up their own Apple or Google Marketplace-like store where developers can easily subscribe to and consume APIs. Meanwhile it provides API publishers with complete API lifecycle governance—from creating to publishing, deprecating and retiring APIs—as well as analytics and metrics to support decision-making and enforce service-level agreement (SLA) policies.

WSO2 API Manager is built on the same WSO2 technology used by enterprises around the world, including a major online retailer that is handling more than 1 billion API calls per day. Providing full multi-tenancy, it runs directly on server hardware or in a virtualized environment, such as an Amazon or VMware cloud, bringing the efficiencies of multi-tenancy and self-service to on-premises deployments. Additionally, the cloud-ready WSO2 API Manager software can plug into the WSO2 Stratos platform as a service (PaaS) foundation to operate as part of a PaaS, adding cloud-native capabilities, such as elastic scaling, expanded self-service provisioning, metering, billing, and storage, among others.
