Amazon Web Services(AWS) is a collection of remote computing services (also called web services) that together make up a cloud computing platform, offered over the Internet by Amazon.com. The most central and well-known of these services are Amazon EC2 and Amazon S3. The service is advertised as providing a large computing capacity (potentially many servers) much faster and cheaper than building a physical server farm.
These are the organizations I come across in my research who are doing interesting things in the API space. They could be companies, institutions, government agencies, or any other type of organizational entity. My goal is to aggregate so I can stay in tune with what they are up to and how it impacts the API space.
glot.io lets you run and share snippets. Snippets can be saved as either public or secret. Public snippets will show up in /snippets and will be found by search engines. Secret snippets can only be accessed by those who know the url. Code is executed inside a temporary container without a network connection. Execution time is limited to 15 seconds and the output can not exceed 100KiB.
Cloud computing has made possible fully serverless models of computing where logic can be spun up on-demand in response to events originating from anywhere. Construct applications from bite-sized business logic billed to the nearest 100 milliseconds, only while your code is running. Serve users from zero to planet-scale, all without managing any infrastructure.
Design, deploy, and monitor your cloud-native applications, easily. Applications running on serverless architectures scale up and down on demand with high availability. There is no need to provision or manage servers. Your code runs only when it's needed, and you only pay for the compute time you use. Stackery provides operational tools for developers building serverless applications. Easily detect and surface application errors, version control your serverless infrastructure, and securely manage configurations and deployments. Stackery helps developers build production-grade serverless applications by providing an abstraction layer on top of base serverless technologies like AWS Lambda. Stackery allows you to focus on your business logic rather than configuring infrastructure services.
Webscripts respond to HTTP requests, making them easy to call from web and mobile apps. Webscripts have all the features you need, like password hashing and persistent storage, plus the full programmability of Lua. Many developer tools, such as GitHub and Stripe, offer webhooks as a way of delivering notifications. Webscripts are a fast and easy way to receive those webhooks. Our built-in request logging makes them equally easy to debug on-the-fly. Webscripts can also be activated on a schedule, providing a simple way to build monitoring or other automation.
Microservices at your fingertips. no provisioning or deployments required. give your IoT device compute super powers. Run code in response to events. Your microservice up in less than 7 seconds. Use our awesome CLI to spin a service in seconds. You can also integrate with your favourite CI/CD solution for automated deployments. Run your code with just an HTTPS call. As simple as that. Your mobile or IoT device gets compute superpowers.
Microsoft Azure is a cloud computing platform and infrastructure created by Microsoft for building, deploying, and managing applications and services through a global network of Microsoft-managed datacenters. It provides both PaaS and IaaS services and supports many different programming languages, tools and frameworks, including both Microsoft-specific and third-party software and systems
Iron.io is a cloud application services provider. Available on multiple platforms and clouds, Iron.io products eliminate the need to worry about managing and scaling infrastructure, letting developers focus on building great applications. IronMQ, an industrial-strength message queue, and IronWorker, a high-scale task queue, are elastic, durable and high-performance application services built with the cloud in mind.
AWS Lambda is a zero-administration compute platform for back-end web developers that runs your code for you in the AWS cloud and provides you with a fine-grained pricing structure. AWS Lambda runs your back-end code on its own AWS compute fleet of Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) instances across multiple Availability Zones in a region, which provides the high availability, security, performance, and scalability of the AWS infrastructure.
If you think there is an organization I should have listed here feel free to tweet it at me, or submit as a Github issue. Even though I do this full time, I'm still a one person show, and I miss quite a bit, and depend on my network to help me know what is going on.
