Migrate from any Parse Server provider in 3 easy steps:

Step 1

Create your Parse on Buddy app, copy manual configuration (including settings and cloud code/web hosting) from your self-hosted Parse Server app. Then point your app in the dashboard to your current MongoDB database.

Step 2

Test and publish to the app stores. Allow for your users to upgrade to the new version that uses Parse on Buddy (if your app was already in production).

Step 3

Finalize migration by clicking a single button in the dashboard.

Host your apps for free with Parse on Buddy.

We’ve taken Parse Server and hardened it to support the largest and highest traffic apps in the world.

To help apps and organizations affected by the shutdown of Parse, we’ve built a fully hosted, fully managed, scalable implementation of the open source Parse Server targeted at higher volume applications.

We collaborated with Facebook to roll out this enterprise ready mobile backend, eliminating hosting and management hassle so you can focus on making great apps.

Parse on Buddy bridges the gap by providing some of the features that were only available in the existing Facebook Parse but are not implemented in the open source version.
