    Facebook’s declare that their well admired developer service platform ‘Parse’ will close by January 28, 2017. Any calls which are hosted Parse back-end service will come to an ending and stop running. It is quite recommended to cheer your consumers to upgrade with latest version of the application. Parse is a platform that assists developers to generate Backend for their mobile applications. People knew it as MBaaS (Mobile Backend as a Service).

    It's official that facebook would be closing Parse in the upcoming year but by making the technology open source. So, one can migrate this service to an infrastructure which is completely self hosted. If you have your numerous mobile applications which are hosted on Parse, now is the ideal moment to migrate it on a new host which can be one of these:

    • Google Cloud Platform
    • Heroku
    • Amazon AWS
    • Azure

    Parse server is an open source version of Parse backend which can be organized to any of the infrastructure that run Node.js. It’s not reliant on the hosted Parse backend. It utilizes Mongo DB directly as well as not be reliant on the database which is Parse hosted. One can easily migrate an existing application to their personal infrastructure. One can also build up and test the application locally by making use of Node.
