Evolu Server provides sync and backup for Evolu clients. While it's technically possible to sync and backup Evolu devices among themselves (P2P), it's not practical because devices are often offline and geographically close. Backups should be stored in locations that are geographically distant from each other to ensure protection against localized disasters.
Evolu Server is a simple message buffer and storage generic (the same) for all Evolu apps. Only UserId, NodeId, and messages timestamps are visible. Everything else is encrypted.
Evolu server is open-sourced (opens in a new tab), and anyone can easily run their own. The core logic is a SQL database and web framework agnostic, so it's highly portable.
We provide a free
evolu.world server built on the Cloudflare Workers and D1
database for testing and personal usage. Our super secret master plan on how
to make money on that is simple: We will sell hardware.
