Astra is a cloud platform for media applications, enabling the storing and transcoding of images and videos. Using the Astra API, developers can implement storing static files with key-values, perform type-specific transformations such as resizing or cutting video, and process content delivery methods such as a URL link or channelling through a content delivery network. The API uses HTTP and responds in JSON exclusively. Astra charges a flat rate for disk space and bandwidth, and does not charge for API usage. The infrastructure behind Astra has powered PhotoShelter, an portfolio and eCommerce site since 2005. Astra's storage system currently handles billions of objects, comprising several PBs of data.
The following is a list of how-to and tutorial content that matched your search term. ProgrammableWeb's how-to content comes from two sources; full-blown tutorials that we publish ourselves and other highly relevant tutorials that we find elsewhere on the Web. This list represents on combination of both tutorial types and if you go to ProgrammableWeb's API University, you'll not only be able to find more, they are organized based on your role (API providers or developers who consumes APIs). If you know of a tutorial that would be of interest to the ProgrammableWeb community, we'd like to know about it. Be sure to check our guidelines for making contributions to ProgrammableWeb.
