Telerik Tool Aims To Speed Up Mobile App Development
Telerik has released Everlive, a backend-as-a-service (BaaS) product that aims to speed up time-to-market for mobile apps.
Everlive provides cloud-based services like social media integration, push notifications (which it says is Everlive's "most popular feature" thus far), data storage, user management, cloud-code execution, email and SMS notifications.
Everlive includes a portal for managing the backend, and offers real-time reports. The Everlive servers are hosted at Rackspace, and have numerous certificates of security and compliance, including ISO/IEC 27002, ISO 27001, SSAE 16, and PCI-DSS for credit-card payments.
Everlive, available now, has a limited, but free, developer version. Other pricing levels include Startup ($74/month or $49/month for an annual plan), Business ($224/$149) and Enterprise (for which pricing varies). Telerik first started discussing Everlive in May, when it was in preview form.
