API usage and demand may be unpredictable. Can you scale API infrastructure to meet unexpected peak loads?  While you scale API infrastructure, can you guarantee availability and meet service level agreements? Building API solutions on a scalable API management platform will address demand challenges and ensure your API fulfills business demand.

Based on usage, your API infrastructure should scale the environment and route requests seamlessly to accommodate increasing and decreasing traffic. A successful API infrastructure solution is designed to scale API infrastructure components with traffic growth.     A scalable API infrastructure can independently scale API portal, API gateway, API monitoring, API management, and API analytic components.
