Couchbase introduces Capella hosted Database-as-a-Service on AWS

Modern database provider Couchbase introduced the Couchbase Capella hosted Database-as-a-Service (DBaaS) offering on Amazon Web Services (AWS).

According to Couchbase, Capella delivers database flexibility for developers and performance at scale for enterprise applications, with the best price-performance of any DBaaS. As Capella is fully managed and automated, customers can focus on development, improving their applications, and reducing time to market, instead of worrying about operational database management efforts.

Couchbase Capella is equipped with Couchbase Server 7, which fuses “the best aspects” of relational databases like SQL queries and distributed ACID transactions with the flexibility of a modern JSON document database. Capella’s flexibility supports a broad set of use cases reducing a customer’s need to buy, deploy and manage additional databases or supporting technologies. As customers scale up their applications, Capella delivers price performance that is superior to competitors, allowing customers to do more for less on a dollar-for-dollar basis, while also saving time and effort.

“Modernization is accelerating for nearly every business and we are proud to be evolving our DBaaS to include a hosted offering purpose-built for modern application developers,” said Scott Anderson, SVP of product management at Couchbase. “At Couchbase, we align our products and solutions to help turn customers’ modernization strategies into realities. With the introduction of Couchbase Capella, we are offering customers the fastest, easiest, and most cost-effective way to deploy our modern database in the cloud for accelerated application development.”

Easy as SQL

SQL users can develop against Couchbase Capella without learning another query language and they can deploy in just a few clicks. One management pane simplifies multi-cluster, multi-region, and multi-cloud operations.

Developers get multi-model capabilities (document, key-value, full-text search, analytics) and data structure flexibility allowing them to develop applications for operational, transactional, and analytical workloads, all from a single vendor. Users can pick one of 10 SDKs with their preferred programming language.

Couchbase Capella’s unique real-time memory first architecture ensures millisecond responses for highly interactive and personalized applications while the price-performance keeps improving as users scale. With Couchbase Capella on AWS, customers can experience the best in availability and reliability anywhere in the world.

AWS architecture

The Couchbase Capella control plane is built on AWS and integrates over 20 AWS services into its architecture including Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2), Amazon Elastic Block Store (Amazon EBS), AWS Lambda, Amazon GuardDuty, and AWS Shield. Developers can connect their applications with AWS services, including Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3), AWS Fargate, Amazon Elastic Kubernetes Service (Amazon EKS), AWS Lambda and more at very low latency within a single interface.

“Couchbase Capella provides developers the ability to get up and running with Couchbase’s high performance, scalable and flexible database on AWS,” said Sabina Joseph, director, Americas ISVs, AWS. “The hosted DBaaS provides customers with the flexibility and agility of a cloud database without being slowed down by administrative infrastructure hurdles so they can build modern apps faster.”

Couchbase Capella is now available on AWS, with additional cloud providers becoming available in the future.
