About Flex.io
Code-based custom data feeds

What is a serverless data feed?

Data feeds are simply a programmatic way to send data from here to there, like loading call logs from Twilio into Elasticsearch or copying files from Dropbox to Google Drive.

Serverless data feeds also deliver data, but without the cost of building and maintaining server infrastructure. It’s like the difference between installing network cables and hopping on a wireless connection.

Flex.io is an API for building smart, flexible data feeds with a few lines of code. Create and deploy data feeds instantly. No servers necessary.
