Xeround Cloud Database API
Xeround’s API allows developers to easily configure their application to provision and manage multiple Xeround cloud database instances.
Many applications today are required to create a new database instance for every end user or account that uses the service. This is especially true for SaaS, and PaaS applications.
Effectively managing sometimes thousands of database instances is becoming a major operation problem for many providers. Each database has its own needs in terms of size, throughput and performance – and ensuring multi-tenancy, scalability and availability, is challenging.
With a couple of API calls you can now integrate Xeround’s Database-as-a-Service (DBaaS) with your platform, and easily create multiple database instances and assure they are optimally running in the cloud. With scalability and availability automatically handled by the service itself – you are free to focus on the application rather than on the IT operations.
The Xeround Service API allows developers to connect third-party applications to Xeround service and automate processes available via Xeround’s Database Manager UI.
The API is accessible using either REST or SOAP, per your preference.
To use the API you need to be a registered user of Xeround’s Database-as-a-service.
