Realm Announces Product Name Changes and Sunsetting of Developer Edition

Today Realm announces it will be sunsetting the “Realm Platform Developer Edition” as well as merging our “Enterprise” and “Professional” Editions under a new product name “Realm Platform Standard”. For any of our existing “Professional” and “Enterprise” customers there will be no changes to your existing agreements, but for our “Professional” customers you may have the ability to make use of additional features by contacting us. While the “Developer” Edition has been a great way for developers to experience a limited set of features of the Realm Platform software, our research has shown that the vast majority of users need our Enterprise features. To this end we will now offer an extended trial period on “Realm Platform Standard” edition for early development and next month we will be releasing a 30-day free trial for Realm Cloud as well. Lastly, we have created a much more scalable pricing model for both the cloud and self-hosted versions that will allow you to get started at the right price and have Realm scale with your business.

Starting today (February 26, 2018) the Developer Edition will no longer be offered for download. Don’t be concerned…we will continue to support any existing deployments for critical defects until April 30, 2018 and will advise you on migrating to Realm Platform Standard. If you have any questions please email us at: [email protected]

Frequently Asked Questions:

• What does the Developer Edition Sunsetting (February 26, 2018) mean to me ?

Developer edition was designed for developers to get access to a minimal set of functionality in Realm Platform that they could use in development and in the early stages of the apps release. After careful consideration and a great amount of feedback from our users, we will no longer develop, maintain, or release the Realm Platform Developer Edition after April 30, 2018. We also will be combining the various software editions into one new edition called Realm Platform Standard. This version will essentially have all the functionality of our old Enterprise edition in one, more economical edition. With this new edition (offered in both the cloud and self-hosted deployment models) we will also provide a free trial version in the cloud that has all the core features and no limitations on functionality, as well as an extended trial period for developers to use and develop with the self-hosted version, again with no limits on functionality.
