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.
AWS already does very well in the cloud computing sphere, and they have now released an SDK for Go to add to the existing library of SDKs covering other languages. The official release adds new features to those in the developer preview stages and reduces dependency issues with Semantic Versioning.
In January, OnStar announced an API would allow third party developers to integrate their applications with OnStar's platform. Last week, General Motors announced its first partner for API integration: RelayRides. RelayRides is "[t]he world's largest peer to peer carsharing marketplace." The partnership with GM allows OnStar users to leave their keys in their cars when renting a car to a fellow RelayRider. The renter can then unlock the car with a smartphone app or by responding to a text message.
