With Parse.com is due to close in a couple of days (28th January 2017) we’re very excited to announce an important new feature: Fast Migration.
The number and range of developers and enterprises taking advantage of Back4App’s resources continue to increase. The highly competitive nature of the API development business compels them to seek out the fastest and most cost-effective API creation and storage solutions. They soon learn how Back4App’s offers them the flexibility, excellent value and advanced security other solutions cannot match.
If you hosted your app on Parse and are now aware of the fact that Parse is shutting down by Jan 2017, you should be searching an alternative to Parse. Parse has open-sourced their technology and paved a way to migrate your app’s backend to another BaaS provider. Back4app is one of the best BaaS providers that can efficiently support IoT, mobile apps or API’s. Try it out right away as the deadline for data migration has elapsed and you must be getting minor traffic on your app.
Even if you are looking for developing a new app, Back4app has an easy wizard to create and maintain your app. Back4app still supports Parse SDK and offers most features that were loved by Parse users including Push notifications on Dashboard, Global Config, Hooks, automatic emails, and cloud code.
Parse announced about their shut down on January 28th. With this, they also released a database migration tool that lets you migrate data from your Parse app to any MongoDB database. They said the Parse API would continue to operate as usual based on the new database. It made sure the migration could happen without downtime.
