The most important feature of an API is that it's highly available and reliable. Unfortunately, it's hard to see a company's track record when you make the purchasing decision.
At Stream we put a ton of effort into infrastructure, monitoring, high availability and ensuring you have the highest possible uptime. Our infrastructure gracefully handles server failures and availability zone failures. Our APIs are covered by extensive unit tests, integration tests and QA quality checks.
Stream powers activity feeds and chat for over a billion end users and we take great pride in ensuring a high reliability of the user experience. Because of our investment in our infrastructure and reliability we're able to offer a 99.999% uptime SLA package with 100X acceleration. This blogpost outlines the various support & SLA plans available with Stream. Note that the support plans cover all our products.
