Mobile, web and integration apps need REST APIs. These often traverse across data sources including SQL, MongoDB and enterprise systems. Creating an API is difficult and time consuming, especially when you consider business logic and security.
Espresso’s backend-as-a-service is the fastest way to create REST APIs that span across multiple data sources. Using our unique reactive programming approach, Espresso enables developers to write clear and concise business rules to define logic and specify fine grain security – 10x faster than other approaches. The result is secure and adaptable working mobile and web apps in days instead of weeks.
Robust APIs Developed in Minutes
Consider a requirement for an app where customer data resides in one SQL database, sales data in another and social network data in MongoDB. Espresso’s Live API provides a fast way to create a REST API that provides real-time data across various data sources without copying. It is an enterprise-class API with pagination, filtering, sorting and much more.
Business Rules For Changing Applications
Fine Grain Access Control, So You Can Sleep at Night
Espresso integrates with your enterprise authentication system including Microsoft Azure AD, LDAP and Stormpath. Espresso ensures fine grain role-based security is enforced on every REST API access.
Your data, along with the Espresso service, can be located anywhere – in the public cloud, on a private cloud or on premise. We provide services on Amazon AWS, Microsoft Azure and as a VMWare appliance for your private cloud.
Designed for Scalability
The Espresso service is optimized for networked applications – reducing network traffic, database load and CPU cycles. It runs as a dedicated instance for every customer and is scaled by adding instances, increasing virtual machine size and adding load balancing and failover services.
Live Browser – Data Editing and Navigation
Live Browser provides out-of-the-box application for prototyping, testing and data maintenance. Live Browser connects using the REST-enabled Live API so business logic and security is always enforced. It is an HTML5 application with full read/update support created by just connecting to your database.
eCommerce Integration in Weeks
“Traditionally our ISVs would take a year to deploy an API. With Espresso, Kosmos eSync Hub can connect and sync data in weeks.”
Alex Skorohodov, CEO of Kosmos Central
Faster Development of Mobile Backend
Espresso automated most of the work! Getting started was simple, sign up for an account and voila – an instant REST environment.”
