What is Ably API Streamer?
API Streamer (https://www.ably.io//api-streamer) is the first data stream management and distribution platform.
It makes it easy to deploy, manage, and distribute data streams to third party developers as realtime APIs - so they can consume and integrate those data streams into their own apps.
As realtime API adoption increases so does complexity, cost, and friction of integration for developers wanting to consume realtime data. But with API Streamer, out-of-the-box realtime API management tools and a proven cloud distribution network mean creating self-service realtime API programs has fixed initial (near-zero) and ongoing engineering cost.
By building on Ably, organizations are able to completely offload the cost and heavy engineering lifting involved in effectively distributing data streams as realtime APIs. They increase developer engagement with products, encourage higher levels of integration, and gain new monetization opportunities.
Ably is an enterprise-ready pub/sub messaging platform. We make it easy to efficiently design, quickly ship, and seamlessly scale critical realtime functionality delivered directly to end-users. Everyday we deliver billions of realtime messages to millions of users for thousands of companies.
We power the apps people, organizations, and enterprises depend on everyday like Lightspeed System’s realtime device management platform for over seven million school-owned devices, Vitac’s live captioning for 100s of millions of multilingual viewers for events like the Olympic Games, and Split’s realtime feature flagging for one trillion feature flags per month.
We’re the only pub/sub platform with a suite of integrated services to build complete realtime functionality like showing a driver’s live GPS location on a home-delivery app, instantly loading the most recent score when opening a sports app, while automatically handling reconnection when swapping networks. We guarantee low latency delivery of all messages to subscribers over a secure, reliable, and highly available global edge network.
Developers from startups to industrial giants choose to build on Ably to simplify engineering, minimize DevOps overhead, and increase development velocity.
