API Cloud Performance Analysis Report

A Report from APImetrics & API.expert

Dr Paul M Cray


APImetrics made over half a billion API calls to the leading API providers between 2019-2020. We created a detailed analysis of what we saw.

This report also covers the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, which was substantial. We knew COVID-19 would affect performance, but the surprise was when that impacted performance.

It was not in the March/April 2020 time frame as we had assumed, but instead came later in the year.

Our report includes:

  • Performance by individual clouds and regions
  • Networking component performance such as connect times and DNS lookup
  • Overall latency and pass rates
  • Top API performers in our main collections

Cloud Latency over time (all services)
