Couchbase Inc., a Santa Clara, CA-based developer of enterprise NoSQL database technology, announced version 2.8 of Couchbase Lite and Couchbase Sync Gateway for mobile and edge computing applications. Available now, the release gives organizations the ability to take full advantage of a distributed cloud architecture that promises always-fast, always-on applications with business uptime even in a disconnected computing environment.
Edge computing continues to grow in importance; according to IDC, which predicts edge networks will represent more than 60 percent of all deployed cloud infrastructures by 2023 as enterprises increasingly realize its availability and responsiveness benefits. With version 2.8, Couchbase offers enterprises advancements in mobile and edge computing via the latest peer-to-peer sync and Sync Gateway replication technologies.
Couchbase Lite 2.8’s peer-to-peer sync solution offers secure storage and bidirectional synchronization of data between edge devices without the need for a centralized cloud-based control point, keeping data flowing and applications running 100 percent of the time.
The new replication capability in Couchbase Sync Gateway 2.8, in combination with Couchbase Lite 2.8, and Couchbase Server, supports the distributed cloud model at every tier -- from the cloud to the edge -- securely synchronizing data between web, mobile, and IoT apps and the backend database as well as between cloud and edge data centers. The latest capabilities are designed to ensure that critical information never stops moving between applications and end users.
“Enterprises of all types are continuing to explore what edge computing has to offer, and we’re starting to approach the point where it reaches its full potential,” said Ravi Mayuram, senior vice president of engineering and CTO, Couchbase. “By making applications less and less reliant on synchronization with a central server, we’re giving enterprises the tools they need to take full advantage of edge. Regardless of their environment, enterprises can seamlessly spin up new edge deployments as and when they’re needed and take advantage of enhanced data transfer capabilities that make edge applications smarter than ever.”
