AWS API Reference Architecture

I was checking out the updates to the AWS Reference Architecture, where they provide blueprints for how you can use AWS. In this version AWS provides an e-commerce architecture reference--providing a system overview, a detailed architectural diagram, and a list of the AWS services used in the architectural approach.

The AWS e-commerce architecture reference provides three separate areas:

Beyond providing the detailed reference card, AWS provides more information on a three-day course in AWS Architecture Training that will be held in numerous U.S. cities this spring.

I will add API architecture references as a building block for API owners to consider when planning and managing an API. If you can provide clear blueprints for developers to follow, you can increase the chances developers will be successful with integration of an API into their application or systems.
