Couchbase: No Equal
Enterprise-class, multi-cloud to edge database capabilities on a scalable distributed platform...

Couchbase is a powerful database platform combining the best of NoSQL systems with the power and familiarity of SQL, to simplify the transition from mainframe and relational databases into the cloud and to the edge.

Dealing with data

“The Couchbase Server is a sophisticated platform and our flagship product working alongside Couchbase Mobile for our edge offering,” explains Ravi Mayuram, SVP Engineering, CTO. “Our Kubernetes Autonomous Operator orchestrates cluster deployments in a programmable manner. The ambition is to convert a set of data-oriented technologies - for which enterprises previously had to use multiple-point solutions, hence complicating the landscape. We can help them navigate and simplify this data sprawl.”

Couchbase converges a suite of NoSQL capabilities across one platform to simplify development and deployment. “The performance caching capability of our database is combined with our SQL-like query language; N1QL offers unparalleled flexibility along with search and analytics stitched together with an eventing system supporting fast transactional workloads,” says Mayuram. “That same data can be transported with equivalent functionality at the edge via our mobile product. Converging multiple technology stacks into a single platform allows application developers to carry out many tasks in one place, thereby accelerating forward development.”

Modernising your stack

Couchbase are ideologically aligned with key partners like Bell Canada; both are keen to promote a philosophy of operational data visibility. “Our platform brings data from the edge to near real time in the cloud; from here analytical logic, via AI and ML technologies, can be applied for key insights,” says Mayuram of the capability to use data from anywhere to feed into available intelligence.

Performance at scale

“One of the biggest advantages of Couchbase is its performance at scale,” maintains Mayuram. “We are built for the next generation of scaling that will happen. A platform that can withstand the growing demand from a volume and variety of data in a new order of magnitude. Data growth is exponential - be it from the edge IoT devices, machines generating data, or spamming and anomaly detection. These are all based on the volume of data that's actually flowing through in real time - something Couchbase is primed to handle.

A platform for the future

2021 will see some major releases coming along with Couchbase Server, Mobile and the Autonomous Operator. “We want to make our platform even more cost effective and simpler for developers to run their microservices on,” says Mayuram. “The new microservice paradigm developers are using puts a different type of demand on Couchbase, so we're building certain functionalities to make a multi-tenancy of microservices on Couchbase really easy to adopt. This will enable developers to stand up multiple hundreds of microservices on one Couchbase instance, giving them the power to innovate faster.”

On the mobile side, Couchbase is focusing on management and security alongside scale and performance, “We want to enhance security, all the way from encryption to identity management at the edge, so that the data is always secure,” pledges Mayuram.

Meanwhile, the Kubernetes-powered Couchbase Autonomous Operator has the ability to run elastically on-premise, hybrid or in the cloud, allowing systems to be scaled based on workload and automate operations. “We want to make that happen in a programmatic way, so that you can simply scale based on the system resources that are being consumed,” reveals Mayuram. “This adds further control to the DevOps process bringing the database into a CI/CD pipeline to automate software delivery.”

“We were interested in augmenting our data ecosystem with a distributed database that can address a variety of use cases especially for transactional workloads. As we move towards more real time workflows, a data solution supporting fast transactional workloads is critical. Couchbase is successfully providing us the solution for such workloads. Couchbase is now the backend for multiple realtime transactional applications.” George Iskendarian, Director, Big Data & AI, Bell Inc (Canada)
