FAQs

What is lunar.dev?

lunar.dev is the only solution minded to optimizing and centralizing the management of consumed 3rd party APIs across organizations. Rather than setting controls on the API provider's side, we're minded to help optimize usage and maintenance costs on the API consumer side. Lunar is the only centralized solution to view, control and fix API scaling problems, maintenance costs and performance issues.

Is Lunar.dev Free?

Yes, lunar.dev released a free open-source version. Lunar.dev will continue to be free for Open Source or educational projects in it's self-hosted option. To inquire more about SaaS and pricing reach out to info@lunar.dev.

Is lunar.dev a SaaS solution?

In addition to our OSS and self-hosted version, you can request access to our beta SaaS version, and inquire more information at info@lunar.dev.

Is lunar.dev another middleware in my environment?

We know the build-vs.buy dilemma. We believe leaving API integrations unmanaged equals more technical debt, and similarly, that building your API middleware will cause you exponential maintenance and issues as you scale. In the Beta Version, implementing Lunar requires a simple import of our supported interceptors via SDK and a one-line installation of the Lunar forward proxy. Removing Lunar is also as simple as that. it is just as easy as if it never existed. Read more about it in this post.

Is it implemented per node or service?

Our recommendation is to deploy a Lunar forward-proxy per node. With the free Lunar version, you gain the ability to address and optimize API consumption issues on a per-node basis in real-time. When it comes to your scaled production environment, it may be necessary to scale your Lunar proxy instances across multiple nodes, implementing unified policies and shared states among all services and nodes. Imagine the advantages of having shared API caching across your clusters. To cater to these specific requirements, we are developing Lunar Pro, designed for resilience at scale in robust production environments. If you're interested in learning more, please reach out to us at info@lunar.dev.

Is sensitive data stored by lunar.dev?

Lunar is deployed entirely within your cloud environment, ensuring that no API calls or sensitive Personally Identifiable Information (PII) and customer data are routed to our SaaS infrastructure. The data transmitted to our infrastructure solely consists of system heartbeat, configurations, and telemetry information. Get in touch to get more details about our security measures at info@lunar.dev.

If lunar.dev is down, what’s going to happen?

Lunar will never act as a single point of failure. The Lunar forward proxy incorporates a configurable fail-safe mechanism. In the event of proxy failure or exceeding timeouts, the Lunar Agent will directly make the same API call to the API provider, ensuring zero data loss.

Engineers can easily select which problematic or under-performing APIs to manage with Lunar so that not all traffic is tunneled via Lunar’s forward proxy.

Will my API calls experience increased latency?

API calls routed through the Lunar forward-proxy incur minimal latency, with a maximum latency impact of only 4ms in the P95 percentile. Leveraging the capabilities of HAProxy, Lunar continuously reduces latency overhead. The benefits gained from tunneling calls through the Lunar proxy outweigh a negligible latency impact.Read the detailed report of our latency solution and how we benchmark.

How is lunar.dev's Caching better?


We recognize that the way you incorporate third-party APIs into your application is part of a carefully crafted business logic specific to your needs. We do not claim to outperform your implementation but to simplify enhancing and optimizing your business logic without requiring any code changes. This means that you have full control over configuring the various API plugins according to your specific requirements.

Our platform provides a wide range of configurable API middleware, offering insights on potential improvements based on our accumulated knowledge. Engineers can autonomously choose how to implement the plugins and enforce policies tailored to your unique environment.

Kudos to early Champions.

"Lunar.dev is changing the game for consumed APIs in production. I’m happy to see a robust but surprisingly simple infrastructure solution like Lunar, giving developers more autonomy to fix and optimize consumed APIs on the fly."

Amir Shevat

Author of the API book Designing Web APIs: Building APIs That Developers Love

"I've been waiting for a solution like this, that's focused on API consumers, for years! Having implemented resilience mechanisms, I've experienced first-hand many of the traps related to APIs post-integration. Throttling and caching are often basic abilities for internal building, but consider how many developer hours you've dedicated to building and maintaining these, time after time."

Naor Paz

Director of Product @ Firefly

"Lunar.dev helped us solve an acute recurring 429 problem in production. What I loved about it was the easy installation and light-weight solution. Lunar helped us reduce Back-off errors by 50% and get to 100% Successful API calls."

Maor Hizkiev

CTO & Co-founder @ BitDam

"Consuming 3rd party APIs is often overlooked. An effective unified management solution for outgoing traffic, like Lunar, can save engineering teams costs, time, and solve recurring performance issues."

Drorit Baron

Technical Lead @ Riskified

"No one will be managing APIs post-integrations alone in a few years. A solution like Lunar.dev ensures business continuity on another level - downtime, security, costs and even policy enforcement are more easily managed in a unified way. Many teams can benefit from a solution like Lunar."

Ronen Slavin

CTO & Co-founder @ Cycode

"The open core nature of Lunar is attractive to me as an engineer. I’ve had to handle so many reliance building issues on my own, chaching throttling and building scrapers to handle downtime. This is a lightweight simple to install but robust solution- all in one."

Shay Nehmad

Engineering Enablement Architect @ Orca Security

Lunar.dev is elevating the incredibly difficult job of API maintenance for both devops and engineering teams. The Plug-and play approach to discovering and fixing integrations in production will save scaling teams the high maintenance costs and build up resilience.
