Mashups using the same API (1)
Splice Machine prides itself on being the only transactional SQL-on-Hadoop database aimed at giving developers an easy-to-learn tool for managing big data in the enterprise. ProgrammableWeb spoke with Splice Machine's CEO Monte Zweben at the recent API World and Data Week conference in San Francisco - where they won a Top Innovator award - to discuss how API developers can access the best-of-both-worlds SQL and NoSQL database engine to return contextual and personalization data in realtime.
ProgrammableWeb recently reported about the launch of the new YouTube Data API Version 3.0 (experimental) which includes a New Topics API and Universal Search feature powered by Freebase.

There's a new Amazon acronym to learn. RDS stands for Relational Database Service and it is the newest addition to Amazon's suite of web services. Unlike previous data services from Amazon such as SimpleDB, RDS is relational (our profiles for the SimpleDB API and new RDS API). In fact, it's a MySQL 5.1 instance but the main difference is that it is hosted on a virtual server instance in Amazon's data center. And it can expand and contract as needed, programmatically. Like the Amazon APIs before it, RDS was built to provide developers access to Amazon's infrastructure, with pay-as-you-go pricing based on your usage.
