I think the best part about WSO2 API Manager is that it's highly customizable because it's open-source. The partnership model is quite lucrative for us, it helps us to go and pitch to our customers. You can build a lot of business models yourself that you want to use. You are able to do a lot of the solutions.

Most of the time, we need to install a plug-in without having any lapse in services or restarting the application. The WSO2 platform can do all deployments without any downtime.

As far as I am aware this solution is the first API Publisher that allows you to create and publish API and to manage the API lifecycle.

One of the great things about WSO2 API Manager is that it is so easy to adopt. And because it's an open source solution, we're able to extend the implementation any time to suit our company needs better.

This is a flexible and versatile API management solution that has the power to integrate with more than just API.

If you are using open-source, it's not expensive. If you choose to upgrade to get enterprise support, then you need a subscription and it has a cost. I am not using the enterprise support and I don't have a subscription. Therefore, I'm not technically paying for the product at all.

I have worked on 5 API products each product has its own pros & cons. I would choose Apigee over all others because it provides pure API Management Tools & Services. Apigee also provides a lot of OOTB Policies which can be applied with little or no change. API Development & Exception handling is too easy in Apigee compared to Mulesoft. Go for Mulesoft if ESB capabilities are required and unlike APigee we can do a lot of customization & create custom policies in Mulesoft. Mule also provides a lot of third-party connectors OOTB which can be used to quickly integrate with other systems. We can also create custom connecters as per our requirement. Apigee supports Swagger & Mule supports RAML. So if your existing services/APIs produce/use Swagger go for Apigee. Anyway, we have many scripts which convert Swagger to RAML & vice-versa. A very good Developer/API Portal is required for exposing the APIs securely & well-documented. If this is an important requirement, I would recommend Apigee over Mulesoft. Apigee's Drupal-based Portal provides a lot of features which Mulesoft Portal lacks. Apigee also provides features/tools on Analytics & Bot-Detection for improving your APIs consumption.

It depends on your needs. I would recommend Apigee if you are don’t need an Integration Platform/ ESB for any heavy lifting. Mulesoft Cloudhub comes with one common engine “Mule Anypoint Runtime Engine” which is the core and offers ESB capabilities including a lot of OOTB connectors. Now if your southbound/ downstream has a lot of legacy applications requiring message/ file based integrations, then it makes sense to use Mulesoft, wrap these legacy-interfaces as HTTP/Web end-points and wire them using API Manager. On the other hand, if you downstream is already on HTTP endpoint/ microservices, then Apigee is far more robust than API Manager. You can simply scale it to 200tps without any hassle. The deployment model of Apigee is lot cleaner as you can scale the “Message Processor & Message Router” (part of Edge gateway) separately from Dev Portal & Management server. The analytics is far superior to Mule and you far more options when wiring API than Mule. For example, the concept of IP-whitelisting, data policies (as filters) is pretty cool in Apigee. Another key point is you can have a hybrid model in Apigee with on-prem Message Router(s) to deploy multiple clusters of microservices. I have not used BaaS but it gives you the ability to create “Application Network” very similar to Mule except it looks richer. Finally, with zookeeper, clustering of Apigee Edge server is more robust than Mulesoft, especially on higher loads. My verdict is Apigee if Integration is NOT a need. BTW, I felt API Manager’s Anypoint Exchange is a better collaboration platform for sharing API definition within enterprise and outside. It's actually nice ?. But with Salesforce acquisition of Mulesoft, please understand their long-term roadmap and support/upgrade (especially if you going with On-Premise and not on cloud). Best Regards, Arnab.
