What Is Backend-as-a-Service?

Backend-as-a-Service (BaaS) is a cloud-based model that allows mobile and web application developers to outsource hosting, storage, database management, and other backend aspects of the project, and focus only on the frontend side. BaaS providers use custom APIs and SDKs (software development kits) to offer services that support multiple platforms and provide developers with a simple and efficient way to connect their apps to cloud services.
