Enterprise Adoption for APIs and Microservices Fuels Demand for Assurance of API Health with API Performance Monitoring
SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwired - Feb 3, 2016) - Runscope, the leader in cloud-based API performance monitoring and testing, today announced that the company performs more than 100 million test runs per month, a more than 500% increase from the same time last year. Enterprises are increasingly relying on APIs to power infrastructure and applications across multiple platforms and devices, driving demand to protect these investments by having full visibility into API performance with monitoring and testing.
"As large retailers, media providers, and data brokers adopt APIs and microservices, it is critical that these services are verified at all stages of the API lifecycle," said John Sheehan, Co-founder and CEO of Runscope. "API quality is more important than ever, and API testing and monitoring helps big and small companies alike ensure that the APIs they rely on are up, fast, and returning the correct data."
Downtime can have far-reaching impact on any business, resulting in poor end-user experiences, customer attrition, and revenue loss. Monitoring these mission-critical APIs allows DevOps, QA, and developer teams to surface API issues at every stage of development to mitigate downtime before customers notice.
Runscope's API monitoring and testing solution was built for teams across the software development lifecycle. Developers can build API tests that validate the content and structure of an API call, then run those tests on a continuous schedule from multiple points of presence and get notified when an API test fails. By monitoring their APIs, developers achieve full visibility into the traffic running through those APIs that allows them to solve problems faster than ever. More than 75,000 developers around the world use Runscope to maintain API quality and ensure API performance.
Runscope provides a suite of API performance monitoring and testing tools built for teams across every stage of the modern development lifecycle. Developers in more than 135 countries across the globe rely on Runscope to ensure that over 64,000 unique APIs are not only operating, but performing optimally and correctly. Runscope is backed by General Catalyst Partners, True Ventures, and Andreessen Horowitz. The company is based in San Francisco, CA. For more information, go to: http://www.runscope.com.
