Fair and square pricing
Because simple pricing just makes sense, Apiphany is introducing a new “fair and square” pricing model for our Global API Delivery Platform. Learn more.
The Apiphany platform is a native cloud solution, meaning it's built on top of a Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) cloud operating system. This architecture enables us to provide reliability, high availability, scalability, and global reach. The infrastructure is deployed in several global data centers with more coming online soon. Apiphany manages API traffic to ensure the lowest latency possible no matter where the API consumers are located. Early during our product design, we chose to support a broad set of deployment options: cloud or on-premises, agent or proxy. We give organizations the ultimate flexibility. They can efficiently launch and manage cacheable or non-cacheable APIs. They can leverage Apiphany infrastructure to deliver their APIs globally, or use their own data centers and infrastructure.
Since launching in 2012, Apiphany has hit the ground running, putting its platform to the test for a variety of high-profile clients. Microsoft and the Pew Center on the States (The Pew Charitable Trusts) selected the Apiphany platform to scale their VIP API, which was used by Bing and Facebook during the 2012 Presidential elections to help voters find their polling location. The API handled millions of calls a day with spikes of thousands of calls per second across the United States.
The Washington Post selected Apiphany as their platform to support their API strategy. Within two months they launched their first open APIs and held their first ever hackathon, Election Hackathon 2012, co-sponsored by NPR and the Sunlight Foundation. This successful hackathon produced 15 creative applications over two days of participation. Many of the apps provided interesting insights on presidential campaigns, candidates, and politicians. The Washington Post has published some of these apps on their developer site located here.
API usage spiked in 2012, and Apiphany continues to see significant growth for our API platform across a broad set of industries and organizations. This demand is largely fueled by the explosion in social media, local marketplaces, mobile devices, and cloud connectivity – all of which are heavily API-driven. Whether organizations start internally, with partners, or directly with consumers, Apiphany can help drive a successful, affordable, scalable API strategy.
