Apigee offers Usergrid, an open-source distribution of Apigee App Services, our mobile “Backend-as-a-Service" that’s free for developers to use. This open-source option gives developers the option to host the backend services their mobile app needs on their own hardware, or to use it as the cornerstone of their own developer platform.
