Couchbase, Inc., provider of a leading modern database for enterprise applications, today announced https://www.couchbase.com/products/mobile, an edge-ready data platform that empowers mobile developers and edge architects to build 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 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 functions of their applications without worrying about speed and connectivity issues.
Enhancing Mobile and Edge Capabilities for Customers’ Modern Applications
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 interrupted. Requirements for high availability and sub-second response times are nearly impossible -- or impossibly expensive -- to meet with only cloud computing. Couchbase Mobile 3’s edge computing capabilities address these issues by moving data and computing resources closer to where they’re 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 can quickly and easily develop and deploy applications that meet 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. For example, an airline can digitize its pre-flight check process by embedding Couchbase Mobile 3 onto tablets for recording inspections. Data is then synchronized to other crew tablets in real-time -- even when devices are disconnected -- improving accuracy and safety while ensuring on-time departure.
Couchbase Mobile 3 delivers a single, universal platform that enables mobile developers to easily and seamlessly manage global deployments, ultimately leading to faster innovation across a wide variety of verticals and use cases for maximum business uptime. Couchbase Mobile 3 benefits include:
- Device ubiquity: Developers can embed lightweight data storage directly into their applications on nearly any edge, IoT, or mobile device because of comprehensive platform support and the C-API.
- Operational ease of use: The addition of REST-based remote administration supports large multitenant edge applications with ease. Architectural enhancements in the areas of manageability and security make it easier to configure and remotely administer the platform from the cloud to the edge.
- Greater flexibility within complex edge architectures: Couchbase can run and sync anywhere: in the cloud, in edge data centers, within a 5G network, on premises, and even on edge devices, enabling multitiered, hierarchical edge computing architectures that meet any speed, availability, or security requirements.
A Growing Mobile and Edge Partner Ecosystem
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.
