Mobile application patterns are different from web application patterns. There are a consistent, discrete set of differences in how they access cloud services. There are consistent reasons why they’re favored over websites as well, primarily based on implicit intent and purposive computing experience, but that’s a subject for a future blog entry.
For now, let’s assume that like web applications, mobile applications use HTTP to access their services, but unlike old-school web applications, they use REST and SOAP as the basis of their service protocols.
Difference 1: Bandwidth is expensive

The first in a series of how to get started using Apigee to proxy API traffic (looks best in HD).
Recently we rolled out two new Apigee capabilities.
First, we've added SSL support for APIs that support the HTTPS protocol. Now you can create an Apigee proxy for an API secured by HTTPS—such as the PayPal API—just specify 'https' in the API URL when creating a proxy. You could also change an existing HTTP proxy to an HTTPS proxy. (Of course, the API in question must support HTTPS, else you'll get an error.)
We're also working on adding SSL support for API providers that want to map to their own domain URL (and therefore their own certificate). Stay tuned,...
The cost of IT security breaches has almost doubled from 2008 according to this piece via ComputerWorld Canada.
While we'd love to tell you this is just a problem for our Canadian friends - unfortunately we all need to understand API attack types.
(Remember in our Cloud security tech talks last week we saw that for breaches over a certain size you may even need to issue a press release!)
Here are 10 threats that we cover in our API threat protection policy pack.
1. Malicious Code Injection: exploits backend...
We're delighted to welcome Sam Ramji to the Sonoa team as VP of Strategy. Sam joins us from Microsoft, where he drove many of Microsoft's contributions to open source and the company's shift to embrace open source technologies like PHP.
Some great discussion on emerging trends in cloud computing, including:
- cloud standards - driving them yourself vs. the interests of vendors
- adoption drivers for cloud computing - a comparison with SaaS
- how IT is using cloud computing to make IT more strategic
You can get the podcast here.
Today we are delighted to announce Apigee.
Apigee is freemium and self-service. You can start using it in minutes and Apigee's Basic service is free for under 10,000 requests...
