“APISIX meets our requirement on speeding development and iteration. What distinguishes APISIX is its rich plugins, visible configuration, fine-grained verification, abundant features, active community, and high performance.”

Difficulties are encountered when attempting to achieve fine-grained configuration management in Traefik 1.x. Routing rules are configured through Ingress, and certain plugins require configuration via annotations. This approach is limited to the addition of plugins to rules within Ingress.
Traefik 1.x doesn't support the visual configuration of specific rules and cannot directly locate a specific service by accessing the request URL through web browsers.
Traefik only provides a limited number of default configuration files, ConfigMap, thereby necessitating developers to refer to the official documentation for configuration details. In addition, some parameters are inconsistent with the NGINX's default configuration, which can make maintenance more cumbersome.
Horizon Robotics has selected APISIX Ingress Controller as its traffic management gateway to provide unified service delivery.
“APISIX helped us greatly improve service quality under active-active architecture. Its complete monitoring feature has effectively supported troubleshooting, and updating the service list has become very simple.”
“API7 commercial support is great for security control and comprehensive support. We chose API7 also because it is marvelous at supporting k8s.”
“After comparing some mainstream gateway products, we find that the response latency of Apache APISIX is more than 50% lower than other gateways, and Apache APISIX can still run stably when the CPU reaches more than 70%.”
