We’re excited to bring real-time analytics to microservices and APIs with the release of Mashape Analytics the first purpose-built, open analytics platform designed specifically for API-centric architectures. Developers, DevOps and Product Managers can now easily understand which APIs are used most frequently, from what endpoints and by which paying customers.  With this vital insight they’re better prepared to manage their applications. The Platform is divided in two main sections:  

API Reports

 

API Logs

KONG, the king of open-source API management platforms, is in my (totally not biased) opinion an extremely cool tool. From startups to enterprises, companies have tons of APIs (growth of APIs within Mashape) and they need to be managed in a simple and effective way. Instead of building functionalities into each microservice KONG deploys a solution for managing them based on your needs – focus on excelling at microservices instead of the boring stuff.

Last month Mashape launched Kong to provide the world with a free and open source API and Microservice management platform. We would like to share some general stats to the community since it’s a project that belongs to everyone. The community response has exceeded our expectations; in fact, we’ve also noticed how much work we still have to do to provide even more functionality to the API and Microservice ecosystem.
