As developers ourselves, we have always wanted just to be able to focus on building applications and scale up those services and not spend time maintaining infrastructure. DevOps sure made "maintaining infrastructure" cool again. But as a Developer, you would want to focus on your application, not Operations.

This is why we have built Tigris. Tigris is an open source developer data platform that provides a cohesive, flexible set of data management services with an API-like approach to interact with data just as apps interact with other services such as Stripe. This allows you to build dynamic, data-driven applications in an infrastructure-less way.

Tigris provides an instantaneous and code-first experience. For example, suppose your application needs a database. In that case, all you need is the following two lines of code, and the database is made available instantaneously without you having to step out from your application code.

const client = new Tigris();
const db = client.getDatabase();

Today, we provide a transactional document database and a full-text search engine for every project on Tigris. At the same time, we are working on adding more commonly used data services to the platform.

Tigris is licensed under the terms of the Apache License v2.0 and is available as a hosted platform through Tigris Cloud so that you don't have to manage any infrastructure.


  • 🪗 Flexible Document Model
    • Supports a wide variety of applications.
    • JSON-like structure makes it easy to map to the objects in your code.
    • Schema changes are performed in a lightweight manner without any downtime and do not require a collection rebuild.
  • 🏝 Simple APIs
    • Quickly add data and easily retrieve or edit that data through simple and intuitive APIs.
    • Continue using your preferred programming language, there is no new database query language to learn.
  • 🏦 Transactions
    • Transactions that work across collections and documents without any restrictions.
    • Strictly serializable isolation by default. Unlike some other document databases, there are no confusing read / write concerns to configure, and no cross-shard caveats.
  • 🤖 Automatic Index Maintenance & Management
    • Easily query all your data without any database administration overhead.
    • The system makes query tuning a thing of the past with automatic index management and maintenance, meaning you will never have to worry about slow queries due to missing indexes.
  • 🔍 Real-time Search
    • Search across all your collections at once using full text or faceted search.
    • Create rich user experiences with an integrated search engine that eliminates the need to run a separate search platform and synchronize data.
  • 💚 Open Source
    • Tigris is truly open source, adhering to an Apache 2 license.
    • We continuously build to improve performance, reliability and flexibility of the platform.
  • 🔒 Data Sovereignty
    • Keep control of your data.
    • Deploy Tigris on your own infrastructure whether on-prem or in the cloud and keep your data safe and secure. Perfect for ensuring compliance with all regulatory requirements.
