Integration Options

 

The NameAPI software is accessed through web services (REST).
Optimaize offers its services in the following forms: Software as a Service (SaaS) or on-premise.

Public NameAPI (SaaS)

Optimaize operates its standard software on servers available to the general public. One time credits and recurring monthly credit packages are available in the online shop.

Pro:

  • Integration flexibility: Simple integration that allows users to incorporate functionality into their existing workflows and software solutions.
  • Scalability: Enables customers to scale their services up or down according to their demand and growth. NameAPI offers different tiers of service with different features and prices, allowing customers to choose the best option for their requirements.
  • Lower costs: Reduces the upfront and ongoing costs of software licensing, installation, maintenance, and upgrades. One time credits and recurring monthly credit packages are available in the online shop. This pay-as-you-go model can be more cost-effective for users, especially for smaller businesses or startups.
  • Automatic updates and maintenance: Optimaize handles the maintenance, updates, and upgrades, with no responsibility for customers of managing software updates. This guarantees continuous access to the latest features and enhancements without requiring any extra effort from customers.

Contra:

  • Limited software customization: the services are designed for the general public as we prioritize general functionality over individual needs of customers.
  • Constraints on API requests over the internet: API requests go over the (secure) internet. While NameAPI implements robust security measures, users may still have concerns about the security and privacy of sensitive information exchanged over the internet. This could be particularly concerning for industries with strict data protection regulations or high security requirements.

Prices:
     See quotas.

Customer-Specific Setups (SaaS)

Pro:

  • Enjoy custom software: Customers can benefit from software customization as it gives them the opportunity to modify the software to fit their individual needs and desires.
  • Dedicated hardware: Get the performance and flexibility you need with custom solutions designed for your specific requirements.
  • No need to manage your own infrastructure: Our team handles server setup, maintenance, and security updates.

Contra:

  • Constraints on API requests over the internet: API requests go over the (secure) internet.

This could be particularly concerning for industries with strict data protection regulations or heightened security requirements.

On-Premise

Optimaize offers its services to be run by the customer on his own hardware. The technical support offered by Optimaize can end at the provisioning of software and data releases, or it may include the technical administration of machines at various levels.
Every release is packaged as a Docker image which can be downloaded and installed on the customer’s infrastructure.
Customer Support is provided by email or online call. The first year also includes 4 bug-fixes.

Pro:

  • Enjoy Customization Flexibility: On-Premise deployment enables customers to customize the software according to their unique business processes and preferences.
  • Data Privacy and Security: Some organizations, especially those in highly regulated industries such as finance or healthcare, may prefer On-Premise deployment to maintain full control over their data and ensure compliance with data privacy regulations. This model minimizes the risk of data exposure to third parties.
  • Control over infrastructure: Customers have full control over their hardware infrastructure, allowing them to adapt it to their specific needs and security requirements. This level of control can enhance data security and compliance with industry regulations.

Contra:

  • Initial investment: On-Premise deployment typically requires a significant upfront investment in hardware, infrastructure, and IT resources.
  • Ongoing maintenance costs: Maintaining and managing on-premise infrastructure involves ongoing costs related to hardware maintenance, software updates, security patches, and IT personnel salaries.
  • Complexity of managing multiple environments: On-Premise deployments require the creation and management of multiple environments, such as testing, staging, and production.
