ObjectBox for IoT


The fastest data storage and synchronization solution for the edge.

ObjectBox empowers IoT edge computing with a unique data storage and sychronization solution. It is designed solidly for compatibility across devices, from sensor to server. With ObjectBox, store and sync data from the edge to the cloud: save on cloud costs, build sustainable and scalable projects that function reliably and securely, online and offline, and allow devices to respond in real time.

Why ObjectBox?


Keep data local and cloud costs low, even as projects scale and data volumes grow.


Keep customers happy with fast solutions that always work – online or offline.


Synchronize only necessary data to the cloud, enabling low costs and scalablity.


Save your developer resources and improve time to market with a fast, out of the box data sync solution.

ObjectBox Empowers the Edge

Easy to Implement

ObjectBox is build by developers for developers. We are committed to providing super easy to use APIs to keep code short and maintainable, and help make project timelines more efficient. We want coding to be fun. Developers drive businesses forward. Freeing up their time from tedious repetitive infrastructure implementation tasks, allows them to solve the value-adding, exciting ideas in creative ways.

Lightning Fast

The ObjectBox database was built for high performance and speed. Our solution is 10X faster than any alternative, and allows IoT products to maintain fast near realtime response rates. On top, because ObjectBox runs on the edge, you can guarantee a swift user experience – no need to worry about network issues and latency anymore. Delight your users with an application that always works.

Small Footprint

We know that on-device storage can be expensive – ObjectBox is less than 1MB in size. Our database is well suited to IoT gateways, and small IoT nodes. We fit on small hardware like e.g. the Raspberry Pi, ARM32X/64X, Azure Sphere, etc. Running a small and efficient edge database on your edge devices, allows you to do more with smaller hardware, which in many cases is a huge cost factor.

Start Free and Scale with Success

ObjectBox is built to handle large and complex data sets. In order to scale your IoT project, it may be necessary to implement an edge computing strategy. ObjectBox is free to start, and scales with your company. Ready to take your project to the next step? Ask us about Startup and Enterprise Licensing.

Do More with Smaller Devices

With a powerful database like ObjectBox, developers can enable Edge AI and data processing on restricted devices, making use of data at the source. Once data is analyzed, useful findings can be synchronized to the cloud – saving the costs and hassle of sending huge volumes of raw data in the cloud.
