Traffic Shaping Your REST and Mobile APIs


Apakau provides a patented geo-distributed API data delivery network™ that enables enterprises to speed up the performance of their mobile applications and APIs. This solution is complementary to content delivery networks (CDN), with local POPs even closer to the end user for faster response times.

Apakau’s API DDN (data delivery network) works at the OSI Layer 7 layer on the API calls with a simple DNS change: no other changes to your mobile or web apps or your data center. Latency, traffic spikes, DDoS attacks and data center costs are managed by intercepting and proxying the traffic close to end user’s ISPs or cell towers.
