The APImetrics platform gives customers deep insights into their API infrastructure, helping to ensure that problems are preemptively detected and resolved. To reliably deliver end-to-end analytics and provide in-depth client API visibility, APImetrics sought a solution that provided low latency and required minimal IT administration while maximizing availability for clients who may have dramatically different monitoring needs.

Google Cloud Results

Enabling Change

Solutions: Migration

As APIs become an increasingly important part of any company's IT strategy, APImetrics helps businesses lower API failure rates and optimize latency by providing customers with end-to-end visibility for their API infrastructure. With APImetrics, companies can quickly locate issues such as network or gateway problems and resolve them before they reach customers. The APImetrics platform relies on multiple Google Cloud Platform (GCP) solutions to help customers better understand their APIs.

App Engine and Compute Engine power the platform's backend, which supports general data analysis and analytics functionality. Cloud Functions provides frontend customer support for tasks such as locally triggering scheduled events, while Cloud Datastore and Cloud Storage provide archiving support. Cloud SQL and BigQuery help index data for later machine analysis, while Cloud Tasks and Cloud Pub/Sub support an agent network that provides additional machine learning resources.

APImetrics benefits from cost-effective scalability on GCP that allows it to handle nearly one million daily API calls and terabytes worth of customer data stores. Features including out-of-the-box Python and extendable library support on GCP allowed administrators to immediately focus on customer and platform development, instead of having to invest time building out the infrastructure for its platform. By migrating to GCP, APImetrics estimates that it reduced back-end operating costs by nearly 5x.

"What we're trying to do is put APIs back into the hands of non-technical business managers. Without Google Cloud Platform and its ability to scale quickly and affordably, we simply wouldn't be in business."
