COUCHBASE Inc., provider of a high-performance, flexible and scalable modern database for enterprise applications, has launched Couchbase Mobile 3, an industry-first embedded document database for mobile, desktop and custom embedded hardware with built-in synchronization capabilities.
With Couchbase Mobile 3’s strengthened edge capabilities, development teams could focus on the core competency of their applications without worrying about speed and connectivity issues.
This overcomes such situations where applications that rely solely on centralized cloud data centers for processing and storing data are subject to latency and downtime whenever internet connectivity is slow or frequently interrupted. With reliance only on cloud computing, requirements for high-availability and sub-second response times are nearly impossible, or unfeasibly expensive to meet.
Couchbase Mobile 3’s edge computing capabilities address these issues by moving data and compute closer to where it’s being used, even while in motion, making applications faster and more resilient by eliminating dependencies on distant cloud data centers.
With offline-first capabilities for applications, Couchbase Mobile 3 uniquely ensures data integrity by automatically synchronizing data across the entirety of an organization’s edge and mobile infrastructure, with or without internet connectivity. This means organizations across industries could quickly and easily develop and deploy applications that meet the requirements for stringent governance and security, while enabling end-users to retain a first-class experience with applications that are always on and always fast.
Another modern application example made possible by Couchbase is an airline that could digitize its pre-flight check process by embedding Couchbase Mobile 3 onto tablets for recording inspections. Data is then synchronized to other crew tablets in real-time — even when devices are disconnected — improving accuracy and safety while ensuring on-time departure.
Couchbase Mobile 3 delivers a single, universal platform that enables mobile developers to manage global deployments easily and seamlessly — ultimately leading to faster innovation, across a wide variety of verticals and use cases for maximum business uptime.
Couchbase Mobile 3 benefits include:
– Device ubiquity. Developers could embed lightweight data storage directly into their applications on nearly any edge, IoT or mobile device because of comprehensive platform support and the C-API.
– Operational ease of use. The addition of REST-based remote administration supports large multi-tenant edge applications with ease. Architectural enhancements in the areas of manageability and security make it easier to configure and remotely administer the platform from the cloud to the edge.
– Greater flexibility within complex edge architectures. Couchbase could run and sync anywhere: in the cloud, in edge data centers, within a 5G network, on-premises and even on edge devices, enabling multi-tiered, hierarchical edge computing architectures that meet any speed, availability or security requirements.
To help customers fully realize the power of mobile and edge, Couchbase is certified on AWS, Verizon, GCP and Azure. Reference architectures and reference deployments have been developed for AWS Local Zones, AWS Wavelength, AWS Outposts and Verizon 5G Edge. Couchbase has also been recently certified as “Service Ready” on AWS Outposts.
Couchbase Mobile 3 is now generally available today to see how easy it is to deploy modern applications on mobile, desktop and custom embedded IoT devices.
