What is an API Gateway?
Deployed at the edge of your infrastructure, the API Gateway is a single entry point that routes client API requests to your backend microservices.
As an API Gateway, Traefik Enterprise provides key capabilities such as API security, traffic management, and observability. Traefik Enterprise enables security policies, adding user authentication and authorization, while also accelerating client requests through caching and traffic shaping. With embedded observability, Traefik collects real-time metrics and tracing for insight and troubleshooting of every single API request.
