Realm Platform

What is Realm Platform?

This documentation is for a legacy product. The latest Realm Sync is now part of MongoDB Realm. See the current documentation at https://docs.mongodb.com/realm/.

The Realm Platform is made up of two major components. The Realm Database and the Realm Object Server. These two components work in conjunction to automatically synchronize data enabling a great deal of use cases ranging from offline apps to complex backend integrations.

Where do I start?

The best way to get started is to try Realm Platform out for yourself! The platform is offered as both a hosted cloud or a self-hosted plan. Take a look below to learn how to try either option depending on your own requirements. After you have decided, we recommend heading over to our Getting Started section for a comprehensive walkthrough of all of the basics.

Head over to our cloud page and sign up for a free cloud account which provides a 30-day trial experience.

For various reason, you may need to host your own server. To learn about how to install, configure, and operate the self-hosted version see this section in the documentation.
