This morning, Amazon Web Services reported "increased API error rates" in the Asia Pacific (Sydney) Region. The first reported errors affected only Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2). As AWS looked into the issue, it later found that as many as seven different services were impacted.
100TB, a rising Web hosting provider, has launched its first API: the Tera API. The API is aimed at 100TB's reseller customers. 100TB describes an API as a potential "trump card" in a reseller's hand because it allows a reseller's end users to control servers directly through the reseller. With the correct API methods available to the reseller, the end users no longer have the need for a third party to manage their servers. In its first release, the Tera API comes stocked with a wide array of methods, and the company anticipates that the list will grow.
