Espresso Logic Lets Developers Create REST APIs for Data-Driven Apps that Bridge Big Data with SQL Data

APIs Provide Real-Time, Secure Access to Data from MongoDB and SQL Databases for Mobile and Web Applications

SANTA CLARA, Calif., Aug. 20, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Espresso Logic announced today it is introducing new functionality that brings the worlds of big data and SQL data into one common REST API for developing the backend for web and mobile apps. These REST APIs provide real-time access from MongoDB and SQL databases without the need to copy data across sources. Unlike analytical use cases, security and business logic is included and can be used for both read and write operations.

The rise of big data has created silos of massive amounts of big data, which does not easily interface with existing relational data. There is a pressing need for a universal API to access multiple data sources. Espresso's new release bridges the gap between NoSQL and SQL data with a single API. That means in a single call, you can "join" data from SQL, MongoDB and more.

"Building mobile and web applications or integrating with partner systems often requires data from multiple sources be combined, mixed, filtered and returned in a single request," said R. Paul Singh, CEO of Espresso Logic. "Our customers want more than a pass through API. They want an API that enforces authentication, access control and business logic."

For example, say a healthcare provider wants to bridge wearables data from MongoDB with patient records in a SQL database. Normally that takes weeks to program manually and IT is under the gun to make that data available quickly. With Espresso – in minutes – IT can create an API that joins wearable data with patient data to feed into a physicians' portal.

Espresso is a backend-as-a-service (BaaS) provider that uses reactive programming-based logic to dramatically speed up development for data-driven mobile and web apps. The new release allows developers to:

  • "Join" data from MongoDB and SQL into a single unified RESTful API using point and click interface
  • "Join" data across MongoDB collections using point and click interface
  • Apply unified authentication (including LDAP, Windows Azure AD, Stormpath) and role-based endpoint access control to MongoDB and SQL resources
  • Apply business rules using Espresso's reactive programming or server-side JavaScript to SQL data based upon data inputs from MongoDB
  • Provide validation and event handling services for MongoDB

Pricing and Availability
Available now with a free trial. Developer version at $50/month, with production version starting at $500/month. 

Just register and you can start using it right away – no downloads or configuration required.

The challenges of aggregating data from consumer-oriented devices, such as wearable technologies and smart thermostats, are fairly well-understood. However, there are a new set of challenges for IoT devices that generate megabytes or gigabytes of data per second. Certainly, the infrastructure will have to change, as those volumes of data will likely overwhelm the available bandwidth for aggregating the data into a central repository. Ochandarena discusses a whole new way to think about your next...
