Cloud Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) have been developed to link several cloud computing applications together. API-based applications are widely used to provide flexible and reliable services over cloud platforms. Recently, a huge number of services have been attached to cloud platforms and widely utilized during a very short period of time. This is due to the COVID-19 lockdowns, which forced several businesses to switch to online services instantly. Several cloud platforms have failed to support adequate services, especially for extended and real-time-based applications. Early testing of the available platforms guarantees a level of suitability and reliability for the uploaded services. In this work, we first selected two different API-based applications from education and professional taxonomies, the two most recently used applications that have switched to the cloud environment. Then, we aimed to evaluate the performance of different API-based applications under different cloud platforms, in order to measure and validate the ability of these platforms to support these services. The advantages and drawbacks of each platform were experimentally investigated for each application.</jats:p>
