API Management Pricing
Azure API Management allows organisations to publish APIs more securely, reliably and at scale. Use API Management to drive API consumption among internal teams, partners and developers while benefitting 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.

Support and SLA
- We provide technical support for all Azure services released to General Availability through Azure Support, starting at $29.0/month. Billing and subscription management support is provided at no cost.
- SLA: we guarantee that API Management Service instances running in the Standard tier will respond to requests to perform operations at least 99.9% of the time. We guarantee that API Management Service instances running in the Premium tier deployed across two or more regions will respond to requests to perform operations at least 99.95% of the time. No SLA is provided for the Developer tier of the API Management Service. To learn more, visit the Azure SLA page.
- What performance can I expect in the Standard and Premium tiers?
Performance will vary due to many factors, e.g. the number of concurrent connections, configured policies, requests and response sizes. The Standard and Premium tiers can typically handle peak loads of 1,000 and 5,000 requests/second, respectively. We observe latency added by the proxy in the range of 1 ms to 20 ms for most configurations. If you have additional questions, please contact us.
- What is the purpose of the Developer tier?
The Developer tier is for API Management trial, development and functional testing. Customers should not use this tier for production.
- Can I deploy the API Management proxy on-premises in my own data centre?
No. There is no on-premises deployment option available at this time but you can vote on uservoice if you’d like this capability. However, you can certainly use Azure-based API management with on-premises systems and data.
- What is a “unit” and how can I scale my service?
Customers can scale API Management by adding and removing units. Each unit has capacity that depends on its tier. For example, the Standard tier includes 200 million API calls per month, 1 terabyte of bandwidth per month and throughput of approximately 1000 requests per second. As you add additional units, capacity scales proportionally. For example, 2 units of Standard provides 400 million API calls per month, 2 terabytes of bandwidth and approximately 2000 requests per second.
