FoxWeave, data migration and synchronization platform, allows developers to provide FoxWeave functionality in third party apps via the FoxWeave API. FoxWeave syncs beyond cloud storage providers. Rather, FoxWeave syncs data from apps, databases, on-premise storage, cloud storage, email accounts, and more. The FoxWeave API enables developers to decide where the best single point of synchronization makes sense for an individual or business entity.
Cloud computing has added ubiquity to compute and data storage; however, cloud computing has also increased the difficulty in managing data that sits across multiple networks in different forms. FoxWeave's platform and API helps alleviate this problem by syncing various forms and types of data across all platforms. With cloud industry leaders comprising its customer and partner base (e.g. Rackspace, CloudBees, etc.), FoxWeave should recognize API adoption as data continues to disperse.
The FoxWeave API uses REST protocol and returns calls in a JSON data format. Most FoxWeave functions remain available via API. Common methods include data migration, data syncing, and account management. For more information and to sign up for a free account, visit the developer guide.
Many cloud platforms have aimed to sync data across cloud storage providers. Some have moved beyond cloud storage and started to sync on-premise and cloud storage. FoxWeave has taken greater aim and focuses on syncing disparate forms of data, across apps and databases from a single platform. As cloud computing and the app-centric enterprise continues to grow, expect FoxWeave to develop its user base.
