Couchbase Inc., provider of a leading modern database for enterprise applications, launched its edge-ready data platform Couchbase Mobile 3.
Mobile developers and edge architects can utilize Couchbase Mobile 3 in building fully native, modern applications in the cloud, at the edge, and on mobile and IoT devices using the language, frameworks, and platform of their choice.
Couchbase Mobile 3 introduces 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 can focus on the core competency of their applications without worrying about speed and connectivity issues.
“Customers increasingly require mobile and edge capabilities to meet modern application demands and data must always be available so the app always performs at unmatched speed,” said Wayne Carter, VP of Engineering, Couchbase. “With Couchbase Mobile 3, we have simplified development and management of complex data synchronization tasks. Our first of its kind, modern embedded database allows customers to easily build dynamic applications from the cloud to the edge, while leveraging their existing skills and code.”
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. Requirements for high availability and sub-second response times are nearly impossible to meet with only cloud computing. 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 can 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.
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 was also recently certified as “Service Ready” on AWS Outposts.
