Telerik Releases Backend-as-a-Service Product for Mobile App Development

The company also releases SDKs for .NET and iOS.

Developer tools maker Telerik has released a backend as a service (BaaS) product called Everlive that aims to speed up time-to-market for mobile apps. Along with the service itself, it's released software development kits (SDKs) for Windows devices, as well as iOS and JavaScript.

Everlive provides cloud-based services like social media integration, push notifications (which it says is Everlive's "most popular feature" thus far), data storage, user management, cloud-code execution, email and SMS notifications.

Everlive includes a portal for managing the backend, and offers real-time reports. The Everlive servers are hosted at Rackspace, and have numerous certificates of security and compliance, including ISO/IEC 27002, ISO 27001, SSAE 16, and PCI-DSS for credit-card payments.

One way Everlive can save development time is code execution in the cloud, which allows the execution of JavaScript code before and after a CRUD operation, based on a content type. It also means that any app updates are automatically available across all mobile platforms (a Telerik press release said an SDK for Android is coming soon, but didn't give a timetable.)

Everlive, available now, has a limited, but free, developer version. Other pricing levels include Startup ($74/month or $49/month for an annual plan), Business ($224/$149) and Enterprise (for which pricing varies). Telerik first started discussing Everlive in May, when it was in preview form.

    How to Compute Disorder for Machine Learning Decision Trees Using C#

    Using a decision tree classifier from a machine learning library is often awkward because it usually must be customized and library decision trees have many complex supporting functions, says resident data scientist Dr. James McCaffrey, so when he needs a decision tree classifier, he always creates one from scratch. Here's how.
