As websites launch and web services scale, having a keen understanding of the traffic load impacts becomes a key issue for many businesses. It is a performance function that has been given front page news exposure this week, with US media reporting on the failure of Federal and State health agency sites to meet online traffic demand for information on new health insurance arrangements. Swedish startup Load Impact – which has just established a US office in San Francisco – provides services to help avoid performance failure caused by traffic surges to websites, or error returns due to high levels of polling to API services.
This week we had 56 new APIs added to our API directory including a service that builds word-of-mouth campaign management software providing read only access to its CRM system, a visual image search and recognition application, a ordering, inventory and point of sale management service for both retailers and suppliers, and geolocation based off of an IP address. In addition, we profiled an on demand delivery and shipping service.
Of the many APIs we published this week, seven were highlighted on the blog by our team of writers. In this post, we’ll illuminate those seven by throwing them into the spotlight. The eight included the Cloudifier API. Cloudifier allows users to create web applications without writing all the code. Instead they use the Cloudifier business programing language to create a solution, which Cloudifier then generates into a web application. All of the Cloudifier functionalities are attainable through the Cloudifier API, giving developers the same power to create applications as normal users. To learn more about the Cloudifier API visit the Cloudifier site as well as the Cloudifier API blog post.
