    Webapi is not really designed for large datasets. You will need to stream the output, and update the timeouts. You might want to look at gRPC which is a better approach 


    note: if you need to support legacy systems it may not be an option.

    Large amount of data from web api ?

    You design your api to send data in page by page format. This means the client will also send the page no and no of records per page when making the request to the API. 

    The API's job will be to do custom paging on it's end and get that data which the client is asking for. This is what APIs of large corporations employ.

    For large amount of data it is suggested to implement batch jobs, using SSIS or some other ETL tool and store all resultant data in one place. Then use that data to generate reports. You can run that batch Job Every 30 min or so that suits your business needs :)

    You can place your final consolidated data generated from SSIS/ETL as need by others at one central location.  This data can be in the form of CSV available at one endpoint. Does that make things easy for you ?
