Developer vs. Edge

Apigee Developer is a free, self-service, non-expiring trial of the Apigee API platform. 

Apigee Developer provides the same functionality as the Apigee Edge, but without an enterprise SLA and without some add-on components available in Edge. Also, Apigee Developer is available as a cloud service only. Some storage and rate limits apply. Please see the grid below for full details contrasting Apigee Developer vs. Apigee Edge.

Developers can sign up for Apigee Developer and start development immediately.
