A high-performance cloud API gateway is one of the components of Project X, enabling high levels of automation.
Thanks to it, Project X can automatically
grant access when a subscription is activated,
cut access when a hard quota limit is exceeded,
impose rate limits,
implement premium features,
track per-customer usage and turn that data into invoices.
Project X API gateway also serves as a TLS termination proxy for the APIs.
It uses SSL certificates from a trusted vendor, so your customers have a secure connection to your API,
and allows using self-signed certificates on the API side, so you don't have to buy SSL certificates yourself.
