New to Bitnami: Backendless Enterprise

Backendless Enterprise – the newest addition to the Bitnami Library – is offering a free trial of their Enterprise Edition for up to 5 users. With a trial, you can experience all of the features that Backendless has to offer.

This mobile Backend as a Service (BaaS) platform is great for anyone who wants to build mobile applications with speed and ease. The platform can be used to create a variety of applications, ranging from line-of-business apps to social media, interactive, and entertainment apps, without server coding. It does this by utilizing programmable services that supply standard server functions.

Backendless is known for its ability to help developers produce applications in the nick of time with features such as:
  • Cross-platform data interchange – strongly-typed objects can cross boundaries of client-side environments without any additional processing or special code. For instance, an instance of class Order may be saved by an Android app and will arrive as an instance of the corresponding class Order to an iOS app.
  • Client-side debugging of custom business logic – developers can debug custom business logic locally on their machines before deploying it to the cloud.
  • Client-side code generation – Backendless generates client-side code for Android, iOS, JavaScript and ActionScript applications. The generated code provides access to the persistent storage via object-oriented data model. Also it includes complete app modules for user registration and logic, chat messaging, video streaming and geo location services.
  • Unlimited API call and unlimited request/second throughput – we do not limit our users and customers on the number of API calls their apps can make.
  • Multi-tier Security – Application data and API operations can be restricted with multi-tiered security policies which can protect data at different levels ranging from object-level ACL to application-wide restrictions.
