Couchbase, the creator of the enterprise-class, multicloud to edge NoSQL database, is releasing version 2.8 of Couchbase Lite and Couchbase Sync Gateway for mobile and edge computing applications.
The updates give organizations the power to take full advantage of a distributed cloud architecture, creating always-fast, always-on applications that guarantee business uptime even in a disconnected computing environment, according to the vendor.
With version 2.8, Couchbase offers enterprises the latest 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 the edge devices without the need for a centralized cloud-based control point, keeping data flowing and applications running.
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 ensure that critical information never stops moving between the applications and the end users who need it.
“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.”
