API Development Can Predict the Quality of a Cloud Service Provider. API can bend services to our needs using simple programming languages. Just like said in our article Cloud Computing and The Rise of API; it is seen that, on long term, a good cloud service provider has better documentation of sets of API for their services versus their competitors. We wrote about API or Application programming interface in plain English for any level of user. WordPress is now developing RESTful API, but why? Why is written in application developer level guide – Why Your Cloud Based App Needs API.
Why API Development Can Predict the Quality of a Cloud Service Provider
This happens in all those cases in which you rely on providers and operators that do not allow you to put your hands in the dough, as it does not provide its customers the cloud computing APIs that communicate in a standard way with the entire infrastructure. If we, therefore, the need to give a personal touch to the cloud infrastructure of our company to entrust, we should provide appropriate Application Programming Interface : without them, for example, you can not prepare a custom control panel or to better adapt the basic functionality of the data center servers. And these are just two of the countless cases of application that are achievable using specially designed APIs offered by the provider.Advertisement
Maybe, it’s also worth taking a moment and make a minimum of clarity: we talked about simplicity but this term must not mislead us. Moving with the API is so simple, but difficult to break by the intruders. This means that if we are not programmers or we do not want to hire one or more developers, it is appropriate to leave it alone. Without this clarification due, we can not continue.
API in Cloud Services Should be Compatible with Different Languages
But, of course, they also should support all the other popular languages ??provided they are compatible with the SOAP protocol (1.1 or 2) and JSON. Indeed, as some already know, SOAP is able to ensure secure authentication over which data exchange decidedly occur in slender way (and therefore faster), which added the opportunity to associate and also use the HTTPS protocol.
