Couchbase, Inc., provider of a leading modern database for enterprise applications, today released its Couchbase Capella-hosted database-as-a-service (DBaaS) on Amazon Web Services (AWS). Capella delivers database flexibility for developers and performance at scale for enterprise applications, with strong DBaaS price performance. Because 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. 

With Couchbase Capella, customers benefit from the latest features in Couchbase Server 7, which fuses key aspects of relational databases such as 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’s price-performance allows customers to do more for less on a dollar-for-dollar basis while saving time and effort.

Couchbase Capella customer benefits include: 

  • 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 multicluster, multiregion, and multicloud operations. 
  • Develop with agility across use cases. Developers get multimodel capabilities (document, key-value, full text search, analytics) and data structure flexibility allowing them to develop applications for operational, transactional, and analytics workloads, all from a single vendor. Users can pick one of ten SDKs with their preferred programming language. 
  • Premium performance and cost efficiency at scale. 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. 
  • Access to a wide range of AWS Cloud services. The 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 is now available on AWS, with additional cloud providers becoming available in the future.
