Effortless Deployment via CloudFormation

PDF Toolkit Self-Hosted 2.0 streamlines deployment through the inclusion of a user-friendly CloudFormation template. This pre-configured tool automates the infrastructure provisioning process within AWS, allowing developers to get up and running faster than ever before.

Introducing the Extract Text and Add to PDF Tools

Responding to industry needs, version 2.0 integrates two powerful functionalities:

  • Extract Text API: Seamlessly extract text content from any PDF document. Extracted text becomes readily accessible for further analysis or incorporation into existing workflows, boosting information accessibility and automation.
  • Add to PDF API: Effortlessly attach additional files to existing PDFs. This functionality streamlines document organization and information management.

Unparalleled Value for Developers

PDF Toolkit Self-Hosted API 2.0 builds upon its established strengths:

  • Total Control: Ensures complete ownership of data and infrastructure, adhering to the strictest compliance regulations.
  • Easy Onboarding: Leverages an intuitive REST API for effortless integration with all applications and platforms.
  • High Quality: Delivers the highest accuracy and performance standards, leveraging technology trusted by leading organizations worldwide.
  • Affordable Pricing: Provides a pay-as-you-go pricing structure that scales efficiently based on individual needs.

Comprehensive Toolkit

The API offers a vast array of functionalities, including:

  • Core functionalities like Convert, Compress, Extract (newly added), Merge, and Split.
  • Advanced tools like Flatten Annotations, Convert to PDF/X, and Linearize PDF to address specialized use cases.
  • New in 2.0: Add attachments to PDFs (Add to PDF API).

Prioritizing Data Security

pdfRest prioritizes data security. By enabling users to host the API on private, dedicated EC2 instances within their AWS infrastructure, the solution guarantees complete isolation of files and information, adhering to even the most stringent compliance requirements.
