Don't DIY... API.

The API that delivers content to your app

Building a high performing, reliable software (and infrastructure) stack to handle content ingestion, transformation and delivery for millions of files is a daunting task. Add image, audio, video transformations, AI/ML driven image recognition capabilities, business insights via in-depth analytics and the task becomes near impossible.

…Why build and maintain this?

Don’t Worry About File Uploads, We’ve Got It Covered.

Complexity Image


Large files, mobile network congestion, high latency networks, handling various file types, integration with Cloud providers, security and authentication, infrastructure management for scale and many more – each component adds complexity to build and even more to maintain.

Cost Image


Developers are the creative foundation of delivering value. Every minute that the team spends on building and maintaining a content ingestion stack is time not spent on building other value added features for your customers. The cost to the company is enormous.

Time to Market Image

Time to Market

In the world of cut throat competition, it is always a race against time to bring killer features to market and drive value to customers. Building your own content ingestion stack could set you back months of time. Don’t let the market window pass you by.

Already support file uploads in your App?
Consider This:

User Experience Image

User Experience

Every failed file upload within your application erodes the credibility of your offering, translating into considerable financial impact over time. Maintaining recurring customers through a reliable product is much more low-cost compared to constantly acquiring new ones.

Tip Of The Iceberg Image

Tip Of The Iceberg

Content is often the foundation block of your application. What seems simple and operational today, will be under the wrath and fury of content deluge, unreliable networks and infrastructure overload tomorrow. Like an iceberg, you cannot see all the pitfalls from the surface.

Cost & Complexity Image

Cost & Complexity

If you calculate the true amount of maintaining the software and infrastructure stack, it will be evident that the subscription of a service that specializes in content ingestion is the prudent thing to do. Integrating with Filestack provides a reliable and secure file uploading solution.
