Microsoft Corporation (MSFT) Acquires API Management Startup Apiphany

Apiphany Logo
Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT) has announced that they have acquired Washington D.C. based API management startup Apiphany.  Apiphany’s API Management platform lets developers launch, control, and scale APIs in the cloud as part of a pay-as-you-go utility model.  Microsoft did not disclose the terms of the deal.

“While there is nothing new about app extensibility, cloud computing has rapidly accelerated the use cases for extensibility which has increased the value of the APIs. As you might expect, with expansion and increased value, comes additional work to expose APIs reliably, securely and at scale.  Our newly acquired API management services provide businesses of any size the tools they need to expose particular endpoints while selectively gating access to more sensitive data and services,” stated Windows Azure Business and Marketing general manager Steve Martin.

Apiphany API management services will no longer be available for new customers.  Apiphany’s API Management and Delivery Platform will re-emerge as an integrated Windows Azure API management service sometime soon. The Apiphany team will also be joining the Windows Azure engineering team.

This past week, Windows Azure launched the general availability of the Windows Azure Backup services, a preview of Windows Azure Hyper-V Recovery Manager, and an update to the Windows Azure SDK.
