WORKS WITH ANY FAAS PROVIDER
If you don’t worry about servers when deploying your application, why should you worry about servers (or nodes, or clusters) when using a database service?
The simple global RESTful API for inserting, querying, aggregating, and searching makes Xata the perfect companion for Serverless and No-Code/Low-Code development platforms.
Xata allows you to iteratively build your database schema as you add sample data, all via a spreadsheet-like UI. You can add new tables, columns, data, and create queries and views. It then gives you code samples ready to be used in your application.
This gives you flexibility as you develop and, as the application grows, the strict schema keeps your data safe and correct.
Xata is the first database service designed to match your development workflow. Create branches for your features. Push to deploy, preview, and test. Merge to deploy to production.
Creating/deleting branches is almost instantaneous, and we migrate your data with zero downtime.
With database branches as a first class citizen and our deep integrations, Xata is the ideal companion for platforms like Netlify and Vercel. It’s equally easy to query the database at Static Generation time (SSG), when using Server-side Rendering (SSR), or when using client-side fetching.
The built-in CDN caching makes querying the database as fast and efficient as querying the CDN for static files.
Use the UI to define which users can access the data and under which conditions. Then we generate the secure APIs for you, so you can focus on the frontend. This frees you from having to write boilerplate CRUD backends over and over again.
Or, if you prefer, use serverless functions as your backend. The choice is yours.
Xata is backed by investors and angels with a lot of experience in the infrastracture space, including the founders and leaders of several unicorn companies.
We all work remotely, usually from home, and we meet in person a couple of times per year in a nice location. We believe in well-tested and clean code, simple tools, progress over perfection, and addressing technical debt early. We also put a lot of value on work-life balance and you should expect a relaxed, diverse, and inclusive work environment.
