Backendless vs NATS: What are the differences?

Developers describe Backendless as "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. On the other hand, NATS is detailed as "Lightweight publish-subscribe & distributed queueing messaging system". Unlike traditional enterprise messaging systems, NATS has an always-on dial tone that does whatever it takes to remain available. This forms a great base for building modern, reliable, and scalable cloud and distributed systems.

Backendless and NATS can be primarily classified as "Realtime Backend / API" tools.
