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.
US government entities are eligible to purchase Azure Government services from a licensing solution provider with no upfront financial commitment or directly through a pay-as-you-go online subscription.

Support and 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.
- 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.
Throughput and latency of the API Management gateway will vary widely depending on many factors, such as number and rate of concurrent connections, the kind and number of configured policies, request and response sizes, and backend latency. Therefore, we recommend that prior going into production customers load test their API Management service instances with their specific configurations and request patterns. The standard and premium tiers have been tested with peak loads of up to 1,000 and 5,000 requests a second, with a minimal policy set and low latency backend. If you have additional questions, please contact us.
The Developer tier is for API Management trial, development and functional testing. Customers should not use this tier for production.
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.
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 a month, 1 terabyte of bandwidth per month, and throughput of approximately 1,000 requests per second. As you add additional units, capacity scales proportionately. For example, 2 units of standard provides 400 million API calls per month, 2 terabytes of bandwidth, and approximately 2,000 requests per second.
