Backendless vs Fanout: What are the differences?

What is Backendless? A mobile Backend as a Service (mBaaS) platform. It is a development and runtime platform which simplifies and shortens mobile application development process. The platform removes the need to develop backend functionality by providing reusable server-side services via APIs. The APIs are packaged into native libraries available for all major client-side environments - Andoid, iOS, JavaScript, .NET, ActionScript and REST. The default backend logic can be modified with custom server-side code. The platform is available as an online service and a downloadable Enterprise product which can be deployed in any environment.

What is Fanout? Realtime APIs made simple. Fanout makes it easy to build realtime APIs and apps. The product is a cross between a reverse proxy and a message broker. Receivers subscribe to channels, and published data is delivered in realtime.

Backendless and Fanout belong to "Realtime Backend / API" category of the tech stack.

Some of the features offered by Backendless are:

  • Provides intuitive APIs for handling user registration, login and session management
  • Supports object persistence with complex hierarchies
  • Delivers push notifications to iOS, Android and Windows Phone devices

On the other hand, Fanout provides the following key features:

  • Reverse proxy -- integrate realtime with any level of your technology stack, not just your front end.
  • Interoperable -- Add realtime to any API, no matter your backend or database, without changing any of your existing API contracts.
  • Open -- cloud or self hosted, it’s up to you. We don’t believe in vendor lock-in.
