[bioontology-support] API call limitations daily, public API

Thank you for contacting us. You have two options:
1. Use our public REST API. Keep in mind that we have a throttling policy in place that limits the number of requests from a given IP address to 15 per second. If time isn’t an issue, this is the simplest way to go about your task.
2. Get a copy of NCBO Virtual Appliance, install it locally and import the four ontologies of interest (provided they are publicly available for download). This requires a bit of upfront work, but the upshot is that you won’t be relying on our network to do your annotations, alleviating the throttling and latency issues.
I would start with #1, and if you run into any issues, try the #2.

Thank you for the bioportal project!
If I plan to use the public bioportal api to annotate 3000 medium length paragraphs of text daily (using 4 known ontologies), do I really need to install locally / use Amazon? or can I use the public api? Time is not really an issue, I can wait a couple of hours (can it be done faster than that using the public api without failure?)
