Seamless Scalability With EC2

On-Demand Execution with AWS Lambda

Backand gives you an easy-to-use interface on top of AWS Lambda, allowing you to only use the computing resources that you need. Your server-side functionality will be scalable, secure, and always available. You can also connect your own AWS account, so that you can incorporate all of your Lambda functions under one security scheme.

Hosting On Amazon S3

Backand leverages Amazon’s Simple Storage Service (S3) to fully host and manage your application in the AWS cloud. All of your application code and files, server-side code, and database storage are available in the AWS ecosystem, and fully managed and maintained. With Backand, you will never worry about hosting again.

Transactional Lambda Triggers

Backand gives you the power to link your SQL database with your AWS Lambda functions, triggering Lambda calls when actions are taken in your app’s private RDS Instance. You can easily debug and deploy your database-triggered actions using our CLI.

REST API for the Database

Backand automatically generates a REST API for any database, including MySQL, PostgreSQL, MS SQL Server and Oracle. You can easily create a new database or connect an existing one. Work with JSON models, complex as you like, and let Backand add or edit the data for you.

Advanced Data Models

Backand lets you create sophisticated data models with a single click, including parent-child relationships, many-to-many and other models. You can create or change the database schema using a simple JSON file.
