Dear Ionic DB testers,
We are writing you today to let you know that we’ve decided to not pursue the Ionic DB product after the beta, and will be shutting Ionic DB down in the near future.
While we’re incredibly proud of the product we’ve built, the overwhelming feedback we’ve received from early users is that switching to a database product like Ionic DB is going to be a very hard sell. Frankly, we don’t think we can turn Ionic DB into a compelling business.
We’ve decided the best thing that Ionic can do is to help users better integrate with leading database products and cloud services, so we can focus on what we do best.
We will be shutting down Ionic DB May 1st, 2017. For developers that wish to have a copy of their data, we can facilitate providing a JSON dump. We are disabling new signups for the service and will be removing documentation shortly.
At Ionic, we’re constantly experimenting and trying new things. Sometimes those things work out really well (like Framework, Creator, and View), and sometimes they don’t (like DB). We will continue to think of creative ways to help developers build apps faster than ever before, and we’re thankful for you taking a chance on one of those experiments.
The Ionic Cloud Team
