Connect your frontend to the cloud. For free, forever.

OneDB is an open source, decentralized backend - it handles user authentication, data storage, and validation, so you can focus on creating a beautiful user interface.

Anyone can host a OneDB instance, and end-users can decide where they want to store their data. This means end-users have complete control and ownership over their data. And by utilizing the existing network of OneDB instances, you can deploy your app for free, forever.
