Cloud Elements’ API Integration Platform is built from the ground up to bring API integration and management together. Our platform connects you to all of the cloud services used by your company, customers and partners, plus the toolkit to extend the capabilities of our integrations by publishing new resources, mapping and transforming data, migrating bulk data and orchestrating workflows.
API integration is much more than just writing to the API – that’s just the tip of the iceberg. Below the surface, developers have to consider authentication mechanisms, discovery APIs, search capabilities, event-driven workflows, and so much more. Our API Integration Platform helps you manage all of it.
Each of our API integrations start with a normalized set of features, including authentication, paging, errors, events and search. If you need more customization, our comprehensive Integration Toolkit enables you to extend the capabilities of our integrations by publishing new resources, mapping and transforming data, migrating bulk data and orchestrating workflows.
Tier 1 Element: A prebuilt, packaged integration that enables a connection into a specific application, typically with a REST or cloud-based endpoint (e.g., Salesforce.com, Google Drive, etc.). See table below.
Tier 2 Element: A prebuilt, packaged integration that enables a connection into a specific application, typically with an enterprise, SOAP or Database endpoint (e.g. NetSuite, MySQL,etc.). See table below.
Ground2Cloud (G2C): Allows for secure integration between on-premises applications and the Cloud Elements Platform without restriction. A G2C Client is installed on the on-premises application, opening a persistent tunnel to a G2C server in the CE cloud.
Enterprise Platform: Deploy the Cloud Elements platform in your private cloud or use our automated install to manage hybrid deployments.
Authenticated Instance: An Instance of an Element is created for every account that is authenticated to a cloud service endpoint. Depending on the use case, an Authenticated Instance can either be associated with an administrator account on behalf of a company or an individual user account.
Active Authenticated Instances: An Authenticated Instance that has initiated one or more API calls, excluding health check calls, within a given month. If there is no API call, you will not be charged for that Authenticated Instance. Active Authenticated Instances are aggregated across Cloud Elements’ Hubs.
OEM Pricing: For customers that need a higher volume of Active Authenticated Instances, Cloud Elements will work with you on the appropriate volume and price point to fit your go-to-market model.
