Backend Development and its main role


In the IT industry, software development is generally categorized in two big parts: front-end and back-end development, and they are all equally important. Backend development usually occurs in the server side which includes processing front-end side requests and managing database storage systems, among other things. Back-end engineers and developers are responsible for building and maintaining the architecture of software systems and apps.

Due to the complexity and the demand for Backend technologies at a global level, it isn't easy to assemble software development teams. However, Inisoft has a solid network that can make this process seamless and fast.

Our team of specialists in backend development is ready to provide the expertise your business needs.

Our expertise with Backend development is vital in our team augmentation process 

Thanks to our 20+ years of experience in the tech industry, we can recognize the potential of Backend development and how it can help expand teams.

We use proven technologies that deliver great results while incorporating the best practices and latest trends in the industry.

What Are Backend Technologies?


The backend is created both for mobile and web apps. What is backend web development? It is when a website is made with the application of native backend frameworks and languages. And cloud backend solutions like BaaS (backend-as-a-service) are not used. We want to start with a backend stack for websites.


MEAN stack

MEAN reflects a modern approach to web development. Each development stage applies JavaScript-based tools. That is, the MEAN acronym stands for MongoDB (NoSQL database), Express.js (backend framework), Angular (frontend framework), Node.js (one of the best backend platforms). This backend stack allows developers to build a full-fledged website using JavaScript only.
Examples of MEAN stack websites: YAHOO!, YouTube, Netflix, Reddit, etc.


LAMP Stack

This stack is considered to be the primary opponent of the MEAN stack. LAMP acronym consists of Linux (an operating system), Apache (a web server), MySQL (database), PHP (a scripting language). Sometimes PHP in the LAMP stack can be replaced with Perl or Python backend language.
Examples Of LAMP stack websites: WordPress, Facebook, Tumblr, Wikipedia, etc.


MERN Stack

What are the particularities of the MERN stack? Backend technologies are identical to the MEAN stack, and it is the first particularity. Second, the only difference in MERN and MEAN stacks is the frontend framework/library.
The MERN stack includes MongoDB as a database, Express.js as a backend framework, React as a library for frontend, and Node.js. So Angular is replaced with React, and MERN pros and cons are almost the same as MEAN stack has. However, MERN is one of the LAMP stack alternatives that doesn’t play into the latter’s hands.
Examples of MERN stack websites: eBay, GitHub, PayPal, Bloomberg, etc.


RoR Stack

Another stack consists of two primary backend technologies — Ruby on Rails framework and Ruby programming language. As for other tools, the RoR stack may include such JS libraries as Redux, React, Backbone.js, Bootstrap as CSS framework, PostgreSQL/MongoDB as a database, Redis as a DBMS (database management system).
