Throttling a tiered, multi-tenant REST API at scale using API Gateway: Part 2

In Part 1 of this blog series, we demonstrated why tiering and throttling become necessary at scale for multi-tenant REST APIs, and explored tiering strategy and throttling with Amazon API Gateway. In this post, Part 2, we will examine tenant isolation strategies at scale with API Gateway and extend the sample code from Part 1. […]

Throttling a tiered, multi-tenant REST API at scale using API Gateway: Part 1

Many software-as-a-service (SaaS) providers adopt throttling as a common technique to protect a distributed system from spikes of inbound traffic that might compromise reliability, reduce throughput, or increase operational cost. Multi-tenant SaaS systems have an additional concern of fairness; excessive traffic from one tenant needs to be selectively throttled without impacting the experience of other […]
