We help our clients streamline business processes and enhance the growth of companies through API application integration.
REST (REpresentational State Transfer) is an architectural style, and an approach to communications that is often used in the development of Web services. REST’s decoupled architecture, and lighter weight communications between producer and consumer, make REST a popular building style for cloud-based APIs, such as those provided by Amazon, Microsoft, and Google. When Web services use REST architecture, they are called RESTful APIs (Application Programming Interfaces) or REST APIs.
REST is often used in mobile applications, social networking Web sites, mashup tools, and automated business processes. The REST style emphasizes that interactions between clients and services is enhanced by having a limited number of operations (verbs as GET, POST, PUT and DELETE), and as a result REST avoids ambiguity.
MySQL is the world’s most popular open source relational database, enabling the cost-effective delivery of reliable, high-performance and scalable Web-based and embedded database applications. Many of the world’s largest and fastest-growing organizations including Facebook, Google, Adobe, Alcatel Lucent and Zappos rely on MySQL to save time and money powering their high-volume Web sites, business-critical systems and packaged software.
MySQL has received positive reviews, and reviewers noticed that it performs extremely well in the average case, the developer interfaces are there, and the documentation is very good. It has also been tested to be as a fast, stable and true multi-user, multi-threaded SQL database server.
PostgreSQL is a powerful, open source object-relational database system. It has more than 15 years of active development and a proven architecture that has earned it a strong reputation for reliability, data integrity, and correctness. It runs on all major operating systems, including Linux, UNIX (AIX, BSD, HP-UX, SGI IRIX, Mac OS X, Solaris, Tru64), and Windows.
Redis is an open source (BSD licensed), in-memory data structure store, used as database, cache and message broker. It supports data structures such as strings, hashes, lists, sets, sorted sets with range queries, bitmaps, hyperloglogs and geospatial indexes with radius queries. Redis has built-in replication, Lua scripting, LRU eviction, transactions and different levels of on-disk persistence, and provides high availability via Redis Sentinel and automatic partitioning with Redis Cluster.
Our Team uses MongoDB in developing as it is the database for modern applications, enabling you to leverage data and technology to maximize competitive advantage, reduce risk for mission-critical deployments, accelerate time-to-value, dramatically lower total cost of ownership.
MongoDB allows to build applications that were never possible with traditional relational databases. It can be done with Fast, Iterative Development, Flexible Data Model, Pluggable Storage Architecture, Multi-Datacenter Scalability, Integrated Feature Set, Lower TCO, Long-Term Commitment.
Node.js is primarily used to build network programs such as web servers, making it similar to PHP and Python. The biggest difference between PHP and Node.js is that PHP is a blocking language, where commands execute only after the previous command has completed, while Node.js is a non-blocking language where commands execute in parallel, and use callbacks to signal completion.
