Making your page load 100 milliseconds faster will increase revenue by 1%. Our mission is to drop page load times below human perception. Read how.
A Serverless, High-Performance Backend
Baqend is a hosted backend, to help developers build instantly-loading websites with a novel caching algorithm. Our goal is to make your websites and apps fast, without you having to care about anything. Baqend is Software-as-a-Service that gives you a powerful API to develop scalable applications in less time.
Self-Hosted & Global Caching
With Baqend Enterprise you can run our platform on your infrastructure (e.g. a corporate data center), while still making use of our caching integration with CDNs and other web caches for optimal performance.
Baqend Enterprise can be hosted on any infrastructure to give you maximum control.
Legacy systems (e.g. existing databases) can be connected to combine them with Baqend's algorithms.
If requested, we can help or fully develop websites and mobile apps ourselves and with partners.
For Baqend Enterprise, we offer on-premise support, training, set-up and maintenance.
Download the Baqend Community Edition and start developing awesome applications in minutes. It's free for personal and commercial projects. If you do not want to host and install anything, try the free cloud service.

Baqend is making the web faster
Today, an average web site takes 100 requests and over 2.3 MB to load. Studies have shown the dramatic effects of latency on user behavior. Here's what happens when your websites loads 100ms, 400ms, 500ms and 1s slower:
Page load time improvements boost user satisfaction, conversions and page hits. According to Amazon, with every 100ms of additional page load time, revenue decreases by 1%. So let's decrease page load time to its technical minimum.
When a user fires up a web page, the browser has to request an average of 100 resources for the site to load. The network latency of these requests causes the page load times we experience daily.
With Baqend, requested resources are served from nearby caches like the browser cache and CDNs. This drives down latency to the physical minimum. Our novel cache coherence algorithm based on Bloom filters guarantees that despite this global distribution of content data is always up-to-date.
Caching solves the performance problem. The horizontally scalable design of the Baqend service hosting your application backend additionally guarantees scalability, rich SLAs as well as powerful APIs and queries.
