Migrate from any Parse Server provider in 3 easy steps:

Step 1

Create your Parse on Buddy app, copy manual configuration from your self-hosted Parse Server app, then contact us here at Parse on Buddy, so we can get your MongoDB connection string and connect your Parse on Buddy app to it.

Step 2

We will let you know when that’s done. Then update your client apps, test, and publish to the app stores.

Step 3

Schedule time with Parse on Buddy for us to copy your data from your current Parse Server MongoDB instance.

Why host your app on 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 are only available in the existing Facebook Parse but are not implemented in the open source version.


Scalable and Reliable
