Couchbase, the creator of an enterprise-class, multicloud-to-edge NoSQL database, has released Version 2.0 of the Couchbase Autonomous Operator for Kubernetes (“Autonomous Operator”). As enterprises embrace the potential of the cloud, DevOps, and microservices, Autonomous Operator Version 2.0:
- Minimizes the operational cost of developing in Kubernetes by automating the deployment and management of hundreds of clusters across multiple setups, regions, and private and public clouds
- Reduces risk by giving users greater visibility of and control over the Autonomous Operator
- Accelerates services’ time to market by eliminating silos in microservices infrastructure
- Makes adopting a hybrid or multicloud strategy easier than ever by standardizing performance across any cloud -- preventing vendor lock-in
As a result, organizations have greater freedom than ever to develop, test, and roll out innovative new services.
Version 2.0 automates a host of functions designed to automate complex management tasks, including automated security management, automated backup and restore management, and automated cross-datacenter replication management. As a result, management costs are significantly reduced; Autonomous Operator users have reported a 95 percent reduction in operational complexity, and Version 2.0 reduces this even further.
As well as reducing operational costs through automation, Version 2.0 gives users control and visibility, including a fine-grained advanced Kubernetes Operator Security Model, certificate management using mutual TLS support, and centralized monitoring and alerting using Prometheus, the de facto cloud-native standard. No matter the number of database clusters they deploy, organizations can be confident that they have complete oversight and are minimizing risks.
The Autonomous Operator enables the Couchbase Server to be run next to microservices applications on the same Kubernetes platform. This eliminates infrastructure silos caused by having to run stateful database applications separately from the container-based microservices they support, reducing the DevOps workload and accelerating time to market. Version 2.0 adds simplified deployment for Couchbase Sync Gateway in Kubernetes alongside Autonomous Operator, making the process as simple as possible and further breaking down barriers to developers.
As more businesses adopt a “cloud-first” strategy and race to adopt hybrid or a multicloud architecture, a major concern is vendor lock-in -- finding that options are constrained because the capabilities needed will only operate on certain infrastructures. With Autonomous Operator, enterprises can run a Couchbase Data Platform cluster on any cloud, including Red Hat OpenShift, Google Kubernetes Engine GKE, Amazon Elastic Kubernetes Service EKS, and Microsoft’s Azure Kubernetes Service AKS.
