What is Backend-as-a-Service (BaaS) and Mobile Backend-as-a-Service (mBaaS)?

Backend-as-a-Service (BaaS) and Mobile Backend-as-a-Service (mBaaS) are platforms that automate server side development and take care of the cloud infrastructure. With BaaS, one can outsource the responsibilities of running and maintaining servers to a third party and focus on the frontend or client-side development. BaaS also provides tools that allow users to create backend codes, speeding up the development process. 

While there are many benefits to using a BaaS cloud, it will ultimately help users solve two problems (see below) while offering productivity gains and outsourcing cloud management responsibilities: 

  1. Manage and scale cloud infrastructure
  2. Speed up backend development
