CloudRail vs Mashape: What are the differences?

Developers describe CloudRail as "Easily integrate whole categories of providers, e.g. Social Log-Ins, or change a provider with a single line of code". CloudRail is an API Integration Solution which allows you to integrate SaaS services via a unified API. Moreover it keeps your integrations up-to-date, even if a provider changes their API. Categories are eg Social, Cloud Storage, Payment.. On the other hand, Mashape is detailed as "Open Source API Platform for a Cloud Native World". Kong is a scalable, open source API Layer (also known as an API Gateway, or API Middleware). Kong controls layer 4 and 7 traffic and is extended through Plugins, which provide extra functionality and services beyond the core platform.

CloudRail and Mashape can be primarily classified as "API Hub and Management" tools.

Some of the features offered by CloudRail are:

  • Only One API
  • Unified API
  • Auto Update

On the other hand, Mashape provides the following key features:

  • Logging: Log requests and responses to your system over TCP, UDP or to disk
  • OAuth2.0: Add easily an OAuth2.0 authentication to your APIs
  • Monitoring: Live monitoring provides key load and performance server metrics
