Growing Your APIs in the Amazon Cloud

Amazon Tech TalkPutting applications in the cloud can reduce overall IT costs and deliver greater scalability. Cost considerations are always a concern in IT infrastructures but scalability may be the most important benefit of hosting applications in the cloud. Leveraging the elasticity of Amazon’s cloud infrastructure can allow you to scale your APIs to match market demand. Amazon Web Services provides tooling that can help you be quicker to market with your APIs.

But do interfaces hosted on AWS and exposed to third-party developers contain significant vulnerabilities? Cloud services allow third-party access to applications and data through APIs. Failing to properly secure that access can put the data and applications at risk. So, how do you safely expose APIs in a cloud environment?

Understanding the cloud API model isn’t always easy. So, on January 29, we’re having a live discussion about publishing APIs in the AWS cloud, which may help answer questions surrounding exposing APIs in cloud environments. I’m excited to welcome Layer 7 Technologies Senior Software Developer Hirbod (Rod) Moshfeghi as our special guest for this API Tech Talk. This is a great opportunity to have your questions answered and to discuss the implications of publishing cloud-based APIs.

Here’s how to join the live discussion…
