Migrating from Parse with ObjectRocket

By February 5, 2016 August 18th, 2022 No Comments

Your mobile app’s data is hosted on Parse and you just found out that Parse is shutting down. Now what? In this post, I’ll cover how ObjectRocket can help support your transition with a fully managed MongoDB solution.

Facebook’s Parse has had a lasting impact on mobile app development over the years, making it far simpler for mobile developers to focus on building great apps and not worry about the backend. However, on January 28, Parse announced they were sunsetting their popular Mobile Backend as a Service (MBaaS) so they could focus resources elsewhere. Fortunately, Parse is investing the effort to make the transition as seamless and painless as possible for their customers, with a detailed migration guide and a full year before fully retiring the service.

Let’s face it – managing MongoDB in a production environment is not a trivial thing; that’s why a big part of the value Parse provided was abstracting the MongoDB database from their customers. As one of those customers, it is only natural that you place a great deal of importance in finding the best possible service provider to not only help you through every step of your migration off of Parse, but to continue to support you by managing your data and helping you scale for years to come.
