Printing from Cloud Storage Platforms
Curator's Note: This is a useful post from 2011 - watch out for any changes.
I took some time this week to pull together a master list of cloud file and document storage APIs I will be targeting as part of my cloud printing work at Mimeo Connect.
I am building cloud print code samples and prototypes using the top 5 cloud storage platforms.
There are also quite a few other cloud document and file storage platforms. I went through as many as I could find, looked through their APIs to make sure that integration with Mimeo Connect was possible.
Here are 14 other cloud storage platforms that I will be targeting developers with, as well as possibly suggest for integration into the main Mimeo platform:
- Azure Blob Service
- Google Storage
- Rackspace Cloud File
There is also one more cloud platform that is dedicated to just presentations:
I will be building browse to print prototypes using these cloud storage APIs to demonstrate what is possible for printing flyers, spiral notebooks, books, diners and other common business printing documents from these platforms.
