Cloudbase.io Has the Infrastructure for Mobile Application Creators Inching towards Backend Break

cloudbase.io

Because Application Programming Interface (API) is not enough for the more enthusiastic of application developers, especially in the mobile realm, a cloud startup has a solution. Cloudbase.io is an innovative server-end company behind whose success is a team consisting of veterans in Information Technology with experience, according to their website, spanning half-a-decade in famous companies. Their rollercoaster of services are all in the cloud and particularly the backend: they provide the infrastructure or offer server space to creators of cellular apps, thus giving the latter the ability to concentrate only on the development aspect.

For a young company which has made it to GigaOm’s Structure Europe final list for 2013, the multiple services it has to offer to users are quite a milestone. Some of these include API-syncing and calling across cellular platforms, multi-platform Push Notification capabilities and open source interaction between diverse apps.

API Synchronization

In order for a client to access the exceptional end-user cloud of Cloudbase.io, the former must make his or her application compatible with that of the source. This implies authenticating and, thereafter keying in data, using a password, to penetrate the server and initialize an API call via Cloudbase.io. The latter’s REST APIs requires encoding information, common to that of similar service providers. This includes the application’s unique code, as well as, the app’s password for encryption purposes. Other information includes the type of data the client is keying into the REST API of the service provider.

Multi-Functional Pushing Interface

More often than not, subscribers around the world have, without doubt, ever dealt with Push Notifications. These are similar to text messages that their service providers generate automatically and send them their way. Indeed, while this may be annoying in certain occasions and sometimes helpful to the end-user, the fact remains that it costs the generator nothing other than the marketing aspect. This is because the server sends the Push Notification even before the client has time to ask for it or in most cases, when there has been a subscription that requires such messages. This describes the backend assistance of Cloudbase.io to the full, with the exception that it goes an extra mile by making this push technology intelligent.

Instead of selecting a single channel to pass the messages through, the creator of the app has a chance to decide on a number of channels that most suit the premise. Of course the downside is that here the client has to decide or even use algorithms to determine which customer specifically should go to either channel. All in all, it is an objective means of reducing the folly of classifying all consumers who use one’s cloud service or application as suited to one channel.

Interaction across the Platforms

Devices are many and each superior in its own way, and in recognition of this fact, Cloudbase.io assists its backend users with a chance to use their apps across all mobile devices. The startup has now ‘helper classes’ for users of diverse devices itching to use the service. Some of the mentions include Windows Phone 8, Android and iOs. The initialization stage includes that of downloading the code that is conformant with the application or particular device before importing the entire library that has one’s files for the application.

The startup comes from the often overlooked British Indian Ocean Territory.

A Note on Pricing

The pricing criterion of Cloudbase.io is similar to that of others but for one instance. Though the three basic pricing offers of Free, Basic and Professional one will find anywhere in the cloud are available, there is also an Enterprise edition that serves businesses in the pricing sheet of this startup. The only detraction is that at, $119.99 a month, the Enterprise account is more than double that of the Professional at $47.99. Still, the Enterprise steals the show by offering 20 gigabytes worth of data transfers each month, with limitless storage, countless device inclusion, advanced analytics, and includes week-long assistance on call. The Free version offers 150 megabyte data transfer, limitless server space for storage, and thirty devices to include.

Recap in Brief

In short, Cloudbase.io is an application launcher that enables creators to have backend assistance on demand. Indeed, the developers of the startup claim that it is possible to launch an application with all its features in a platform in a few minutes. This is despite the fact that there will be no necessity of committing oneself to the cloud side: server appropriation will be in the hands of this startup. The company may serve as a great leap for developers of mobile apps, always combing cyberspace for exceptional backend help. This is why it deserves a slot in the top European startups for this year.
