Sonoa Systems Launches Apigee for API Analytics, Protection and Control
Freemium, Self-Service API Management Service Provides Immediate Visibility and Control Over APIs, Mashups and Mobile Apps
SANTA CLARA, CA--(Marketwire - August 25, 2009) - Sonoa Systems, Inc., an innovative provider
of industrial-strength API management
and cloud governance
solutions for leading enterprises, SaaS and media companies, today
announced the preview launch of Apigee, a Web site that provides analytics,
protection and control for APIs and mashups. Apigee enables API providers
to understand usage, protect their application and enforce API terms of
use, while developers using APIs can use Apigee to get visibility into the
actual service levels of the APIs they consume.
Apigee enables anybody working with Web APIs to understand API usage,
protect their applications against traffic spikes that can slow down
service and improve the customer experience by making sure APIs are
delivering as expected. Apigee's basic service is free and available today
for up to 10,000 API calls per hour, with a premium service at higher
traffic levels at less than $100 per month to be introduced this Fall.
Apigee is the first self-service, on-demand API analytics and management
product that provides API providers and developers the visibility and
control to fully leverage the growing API economy.
"Apigee is the first freemium, completely self-service API management
service, and a game changer for the growing API economy," said Chet Kapoor,
CEO at Sonoa. "In just a few minutes, anyone working with APIs can get new
insights and thinking of new opportunities. Our goal with Apigee is to
make Sonoa's core technology accessible, delightful, and easy to use by the
broadest audience possible."
"Having a good API is table stakes on the Web -- it's an important part of
any Web product," said Brett Wilson, CEO of TubeMogul, the leading provider
for online video analytics and
distribution. "Apigee makes it easy and painless to get visibility
into how partners are using your APIs."
Other examples of Apigee in use include AdRocket, an innovative provider of
ad targeting and optimization
services, which uses Apigee to understand and manage customer usage of
their publisher content API; and Shorepoint Systems, which uses Apigee to
monitor performance of APIs used by its mLocal online classifieds iPhone
Apigee is available today as a private preview and invitations can be
requested at http://www.apigee.com/sign_up.
