  • The real "edge" is the users device, I'm 100% sold on the concept of "local first". There is a great community building around this:

  • rqlite

    The lightweight, distributed relational database built on SQLite.

  • rqlite[1] creator here, happy to answer any questions. rqlite also supports read-only nodes, which can also help with reads at the "edge". It probably wouldn't scale to 100s of nodes, it is an option.

    "rqlite supports adding read-only nodes. You can use this feature to add read scalability to the cluster if you need a high volume of reads, or want to distribute copies of the data nearer to clients – but don’t want those nodes counted towards the quorum. These types of nodes are also known as non-voting nodes."



  • WorkOS

    The modern identity platform for B2B SaaS. The APIs are flexible and easy-to-use, supporting authentication, user identity, and complex enterprise features like SSO and SCIM provisioning.
