Today in APIs: Kloudless Launches API

Kloudless API lets developers integrate with multiple cloud services. Zend releases Apigility 1.0 to general availability. Plus: Amazon adds pro exam to web services certification training, and Soccermetrics API is now in public beta.

Kloudless Launches API for Multiple Cloud Storage Solutions

What to do with the many clouds in the sky? It can be difficult to integrate with all of the storage brands, Box, Dropbox, OneDrive, SugarSync and Google Drive. Kloudless CEO and co-founder Eliot Sun says his new API solves that problem by making it possible to connect apps to multiple storage services.

As Frederic Lardinois reports in Techcrunch, Kloudless started as a service for connecting email to cloud services, but

while building that first version of the service, the team quickly realized that all of the APIs it was trying to work with were quite different from each other, which made their Integration complex and time-consuming. Based on this experience, the team then decided to create a simpler solution for developers faced with the same challenge.

Since launching just a month ago, the API is proving popular, signing up with partners like Barracuda, Bitcasa, Citrix and Egnyte. Now, over 2,500 developers are using it as an integration tool. Information on the API is available on the Kloudless developer site.
