Mobile backend battle

StackMob, a mobile backend provider for developers, is integrating with cloud platform Heroku to extend its services to Heroku’s Ruby developers. The partnership allows StackMob to expand the languages it supports beyond Java, Scala and Clojure to include Ruby and later, Node.js.

The combination of the two cloud platforms isn’t surprising considering that some of StackMob’s original seed investors — Harrison Metal and Baseline Ventures — were also funders of Heroku, which was bought by Salesforce . But it also shows that the competition is heating up in the mobile backend space, as StackMob competes with Kinvey, Parse and others, which are trying to be a solution for mobile developers.
