WebServius + SimpleDB: The easiest way to sell data online
Amazon SimpleDB offers a great way to store data for use within your own applications - but what if you want to sell the data to others? By combining SimpleDB and WebServius, you can.
Start by uploading your valuable data (for example, some historical stock quotes or a direct marketing list) to SimpleDB. Then, create a WebServius account and connect it to your SimpleDB account. Finally, set any pricing rules you want (such as selling the data at $0.001 per row). You will instantly get a commercial-grade pay-per-use API complete with a user signup page, a system for issuing API keys, and billing capabilities.
Some of the features include:
- Flexible pricing for your data (e.g. price per row, price per "premium" column, etc)
- Simplified querying (your API users do not need to learn SimpleDB syntax for accessing your data)
- Developer-friendly data formats for query results, including both XML and JSON
- White-labeling support (API signup page may look like a part of your site)
If you have data that you think may be valuable to others - contact us and find out how you can unlock its value.
