What is a cloud API?

An API, or Application Programming Interface, is a kind of software interface between two different applications. Typically, an API can accept incoming requests and output a relevant response. This allows one application to access some of the data and/or functionality of another application.

A cloud API is just an API that works with cloud services. For example, a company with a cloud database might build a cloud API to make querying that database more efficient.
