How to Develop a Backend-as-a-Service

The unprecedented scale at which data is consumed and generated today has given rise to scalable cloud services. In this talk, we give an in-depth survey on how to build a scalable Backend-as-a-Service on modern NoSQL and caching technologies. Developers frequently consume data directly from single-page and mobile applications. To allow this, the problem of high network latency and access control need to be solved. This can be addressed with a caching approach we researched at the University of Hamburg to tackle latency. Based on these ideas the Backend-as-a-Service Baqend develops a low-latency cloud service for building and hosting data-driven web applications. For illustration, we will present Baqend's architecture and share our lessons learned in building scalable cloud architectures
