Database & Data Sync Blog
What is an Embedded Database? What is a database? While - strictly speaking - “database” refers to a (systematic) collection of data, “Database Management System” (or DBMS) refers to the piece of software for storing and managing that data. However, often the term...
Want to sync data in a cross-platform app? This tutorial will show you how easily this can be done with ObjectBox Sync
What is Data Sync / Data Synchronization in app development?Data Synchronization (Sync) is the process of establishing consistency and consolidation of data between different devices. It is fundamental to most IT solutions, especially in IoT and Mobile. Data Sync...
We are happy to announce version 3.1 of ObjectBox for Java and Kotlin. The major feature of this version is the new Flex type. For a long time, ObjectBox worked on rigid data schemas, and we think that this is a good thing. Knowing what your data looks like is a...
Introduction As a direct follow up from the ObjectBox database installation tutorial, today we’ll code a simple C++ example app to show how the database can be used. Before starting to program, let's briefly overview what we want to achieve with this tutorial and what...
How to install and build ObjectBox source files on Windows, using a Linux subsystem and CMake — tutorial for a C++ beginner
first, Java), we have released C/C++, Go, Flutter/Dart, Swift bindings, as well as Data Sync and we’re thrilled that ObjectBox has been used by over 800,000 developers.
Building a business on open source comes with unique challenges and benefits. Take a in-depth look at licensing + open source market overview.
COVID-19 accelerated the digitization of healthcare, contributing to growing IoT adoption and exploding health data volumes. This digital transformation helps to improve efficiency and reduce costs, while opening new avenues for enhanced patient experience and well-being. Simultaneously, growing data privacy concerns, increasing costs, and heavier regulatory requirements are challenging the use of cloud computing to manage this data. A megashift to Edge Computing is addressing these challenges enabling a faster, safer and more reliable digital healthcare infrastructure.
Edge Databases are a new type of database rising to the needs of the decentralized Edge Computing topology. They deliver specific feature sets making it easy for application developers to implement edge solutions quickly and successfully without being detered or even stopped by fundamental functionalities like fast local data persistence and decentralized data flows (Data Sync).
In 2019 we first introduced the ObjectBox database v0.1 for Flutter/Dart. Our team has loved the engagement and feedback we’ve received from the developer community since, and we’re thrilled to announce the first stable version 1.0 for ObjectBox Dart/Flutter today....
* database speed is the key to compute more data faster and make data -based decisions speedily
* database speed translates into ressource efficiency – saving ressources (like battery, CPU, memory) saves money and reduces waste
* database speed affects end user response rates significantly – smooth and fast user experiences keep people happy and more productive

Also check out the benchmarks comparing the performance of sqflite, hive, and Firestore. All benchmarks are open source.
Centralized data centers consume a lot of energy, produce a lot of carbon emissions and cause significant electronic waste. While data centers are seeing a positive trend towards using green energy, an even more sustainable approach (alongside so-called “green data centers” ) is to cut unnecessary cloud traffic, central computation and storage as much as possible by shifting computation to the edge. Ideally, Edge Computing strategies use efficient technologies like ObjectBox to harness the power of already deployed available devices (like e.g. smartphones, machines, desktops, gateways), making the solution even more sustainable.
The world has been forced to digitize more quickly and to a greater extent in 2020 and 2021. COVID has created the need to remodel how work, socializing, production, entertainment, and supply chains function. Despite decades of digitization efforts, with the pandemic...
Healthcare is experiencing a rapid digital transformation; we look at the market, its projections and most important trends to watch. Plus, there is an extensive whitepaper for free download that includes an extensive market review, a look at the challenges, drivers, and use cases.
ObjectBox is proud to be officially recognized as a sustainable and efficient solution by the Solar Impulse Foundation. Although we have self-identified as a #sustainabletech company since our induction, we’re proud to be recognized as an “efficient, clean and...
