3scale APIcast lets you deploy on a cloud API gateway service in just a few clicks, without modifications to backend code. APIcast is free to use and supports up to 50,000 API transactions per day, making it the perfect solution for low- or moderate-volume APIs. Enterprises can use APIcast for staging and quick testing.
APIcast is available through 3scale’s all-in-one API management platform, which offers streamlined access management, traffic and usage reports, and monetization features. The platform also includes a built-in developer portal and interactive documentation based on the Swagger framework.
“Helping to grow the API ecosystem is at the heart of everything we do, and the APIcast cloud-hosted gateway helps make that happen by making APIs even easier to launch and run.”
