API layers for complex products might need to query other micro-services behind the scenes to access the data required. This is easy for simple queries, but what if the request is to download a 1 GB large file, or to upload 1 GB of content to an internal service? In this talk, we will explore how an API layer can fulfill its responsibilities like authentication and rate-limiting while not impacting the performance of data transfers to or from internal services. We will demonstrate how open source tools like nginx can be used in conjunction with the API server to meet scaling requirements easily.
