Azure API Management

Inside scoop from the API Management team

General Availability in China and US Government Cloud

We are pleased to announce that Azure API Management is now generally available in Azure China and US Government cloud.

API Management is a turnkey, full-lifecycle solution for publishing APIs to external and internal consumers. Customers use API Management to quickly create consistent and modern API gateways for existing back-end services hosted anywhere, secure and protect them from abuse, overuse, and get insights into API usage and health.

API Management is critical for customers who are trying to:

  • Embrace digital transformation and achieve efficiency and agility by using APIs internally and externally
  • Grow market share by making existing services and data available to partners and public
  • Engage customers by securely exposing critical systems to mobile and web applications and protect them with authentication, rate limiting, and quotas

API is no more a technology asset, but a driver for new business models, digital strategies, and ecosystems. It is a big part of the future, and we are thrilled about enabling the future and bringing Azure API Management to customers in China and US government customers.
