Backupify, a leading backup and recovery solutions provider for Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) applications, has just announced the launch of the Backupify Developer Program which includes a suite of APIs that allow SaaS application developers to integrate data backup and restore capabilities into their applications.
There are major advantages to today’s applications being built atop APIs. If you’re reading ProgrammableWeb, there’s a good chance you know all about integrating with other services. The major disadvantage of modern distributed architecture is pretty obvious—someone else’s service could go down and it’s outside of your control. You might not even know a service is down, which is why many top API providers are now making status pages available. These sites help communicate to developers when anything is amiss with the API.
