The Power of Serverless

Services

Data Storage

Just because you've gone JAMstack doesn't mean you can't get data from a database or otherwise store and retrieve data.

Logo for 8base

8base

Data storage, GraphQL access to that data, and easy Lambda deployment.

Logo for Airtable

Airtable

Part spreadsheet, part database, and entirely flexible.

Logo for Cloud Firestore

Cloud Firestore

Cloud Firestore is a flexible, scalable database for mobile, web, and server development from Firebase and Google Cloud Platform.

Firestore is newer and Google encourages you more to use it over Firebase's original realtime database. Comparison.

Logo for FaunaDB

FaunaDB

FaunaDB delivers the strong consistency, relational access, and data security you need without sacrificing the global scale and interface flexibility you want. It was thought to be impossible until we built it.

Runs everywhere you are: private cloud, multi-cloud, hybrid, or serverless.

Logo for Google Firebase

Google Firebase

Perhaps Firebase's most useful and iconic feature is the realtime data storage feature. Once you connect, you can not only push data to firebase, but watch and respond to data changes.

Logo for Hoodie

Hoodie

A fast, simple and self-hosted backend as a service for your (web) apps, Open Source and free. No need to write server-side code or database schemas. Makes building offline-capable software a breeze.

Logo for JSONbin.io

JSONbin.io

JSONbin.io is a free JSON storage and JSON hosting service. It is an ideal solution for storing JSON data for small-scale web apps, mobile apps, or websites.

There is also JSONbin.org, which is very similar.

Logo for MongoDB

MongoDB

MongoDB Atlas is the cloud database. MongoDB Stitch is the serverless platform.

Logo for Para

Para

Para is a flexible and cost-effective backend service that stores, indexes and caches your objects.

Logo for Sheetsu

Sheetsu

Sheetsu helps you connect Google Sheets to anything - Web, Mobile, IoT or any service's API.

Google Sheets has an API directly, but it's not particularly easy to use. Sheetsu makes it less sheety. Get it. That's not their tagline I just wrote that.

Also look at Tabletop.js for an open source library to help with the Google Docs API.

Logo for n:point

n:point

JSON storage bins that won't break your app. Set up a lightweight JSON endpoint in seconds, then add a schema to edit your data safely at any time.
