Datomic Ions: Your App on Datomic Cloud

Datomic Ions let you develop applications for the cloud by deploying your code to a running Datomic cluster. You can focus on your application logic, writing ordinary Clojure functions, and the ion tooling and infrastructure handles the deployment and execution details. You can leverage your code both inside Datomic transactions and queries, and from the world at large via built-in support for AWS Lambda.

With Datomic Ions you can:
  • Focus on your application
  • Leverage your Datomic Cloud cluster compute resources and data locality
  • Extend Datomic transactions and queries with your own logic
  • Connect to the broader AWS cloud via Lambda events
  • Service web consumers with API Gateway
  • Scale Datomic and your app together
  • Deliver on AWS with high agility

To learn more about ions, check out the Datomic Cloud Ions documentation.

For Datomic On-Prem, we have added classpath functions and auto-require support for transaction functions and query expressions.
