SANTA CLARA, CA--(Marketwire - May 25, 2011) - Apigee, the leading provider of API products and services, today announced the Apigee API Delivery Network, a new offering that can accelerate the global delivery of data and Web services to mobile devices up to 10x. Targeted at enterprises that are offering application programming interfaces (APIs) to reach customers across mobile, social and cloud platforms, Apigee's API Delivery Network provides dramatic gains in API performance and reliability, improves global reach and enhances the application experience of end users.
"It's becoming an app-driven world, and businesses are increasingly providing APIs to share their online data and services and enable development of an ecosystem of third-party applications," said Chet Kapoor, Apigee CEO. "The Apigee API Delivery Network ensures that applications built on our customers' APIs deliver optimized data with extremely high performance and high availability to mobile devices anywhere in the world.
"APIs are the foundation of interdependent Web services," continued Kapoor. "And just like you'd never think of launching a website without using a content delivery network, businesses shouldn't launch a global app strategy without global API distribution and acceleration."
Apigee provides an enterprise API platform to help companies of all sizes open their data and services via APIs and fuel their mobile, multi-channel and innovation strategies. The Apigee API platform helps enterprises reduce the complexity of providing APIs, drive developer adoption, analyze and understand API usage, and easily scale as customers' API channels grow. Apigee also provides free tools that make it easier for developers and providers to explore and use APIs.
The new Apigee API Delivery Network optimizes API speed, uptime and delivery to mobile devices anywhere in the world. It hosts customer APIs in multiple Amazon EC2 cloud regions across the globe, while also providing intelligent caching and mobile optimization for faster load time and offloading processing intensive functions such as API authentication, traffic management and transformations. It can be hosted and managed on demand or deployed on premise.
With Apigee's API Delivery Network, enterprises get:
- Accelerated API response times to global app users up to 10x
- Uptime levels approaching 99.99 percent
- Optimized CDN usage service delivery to connected devices
