Azure API Management allows organisations to publish APIs hosted on Azure, on-premises and in other clouds more securely, reliably and at scale. Use API Management to drive API consumption among internal teams, partners and developers while benefiting from business and log analytics available in the admin portal. This service helps provide the tools your organisation needs for end-to-end API management—everything from provisioning user roles, creating usage plans and quotas, applying policies for transforming payloads, throttling, analytics, monitoring and alerts.

The self-hosted gateway feature expands API Management support for hybrid and multi-cloud environments. It allows customers to manage all their APIs via a single API management solution without compromising security, compliance or performance. With the self-hosted gateway feature, organisations can deploy a containerised version of the API Management gateway component to the same environments where they host their APIs while continuing to manage them from an associated API Management service in Azure.
Support & SLA
- We provide technical support for all Azure services released to general availability through Azure Support, starting at $29/month. Billing and subscription management support is provided at no cost.
- We guarantee that API Management Service instances running in the Basic Tier, Standard Tier and Premium Tier deployments scaled within a single region will respond to requests to perform operations at least 99.95% of the time.
- We guarantee that API Management Service instances running in the Premium Tier with deployments scaled across two or more regions will respond to requests to perform operations at least 99.99% of the time.
No SLA is provided for the following:
- Developer tier of the API Management Service.
- Any self-hosted API Management components.
The Developer tier does not offer an SLA. Therefore, it is not suitable for production use. The Developer tier should be used for evaluations, development and test.
Yes. The new self-hosted gateway feature enables on-premises as well as multi-cloud deployments. The feature is available for production use in the Premium tier and evaluation purposes in the Developer tier. Please see the product page as well as the pricing section above for more details.
Customers can scale API Management by adding and removing units. Each unit has certain request processing capacity that depends on the service’s tier. For example, a unit of the Standard tier has an estimated maximum throughput of approximately 2,500 requests per second. As you add or remove units, capacity scales proportionately. For example, two units of the Standard tier provide an estimated throughput of approximately 5,000 requests per second.
All nodes within the gateway deployment share the location properties and configuration, for example, the custom domain name(s) and assigned APIs. Each gateway deployment corresponds to a gateway resource that can be created either via the Azure portal on the Gateways blade inside an API Management service or programmatically via management API.
