Couchbase Announces New Technologies to Better Leverage Data and Multi-Cloud Environments

Offered in partnership with Rackspace, Couchbase Managed Cloud is a fully-managed database service that allows IT teams to solve cloud and database infrastructure challenges and reallocate resources towards business initiatives that drive growth. With Couchbase Managed Cloud, Couchbase combines powerful NoSQL technology with the capabilities and expertise of Rackspace, which provides transformation as a service across applications, data, security, and infrastructure, to deliver a single solution for a unified customer experience.

Enterprises today are experiencing an explosion of data, and maintaining and managing that data in the cloud is no small feat. Couchbase Managed Cloud is designed to eliminate the time-consuming processes of managing database infrastructure in the cloud, enabling IT teams to focus on driving innovation.

Couchbase Managed Cloud was developed to alleviate the time and cost burdens associated with cloud database infrastructure, and to help organizations focus on developing the applications and experiences core to their business, Scott Anderson, senior vice president of product management and business operations, Couchbase. With this offering, organizations can outsource the administration of their database infrastructure, freeing up resources and drive key business initiatives, he added.

Available this spring, Couchbase Managed Cloud can be deployed directly within an organization’s public cloud environment alongside their other mission-critical applications--versus within a vendor’s public cloud environment--which will lead to reduced latency, increased performance and enhanced security. In addition, Couchbase Managed Cloud will deliver a unified data platform across multi-cloud architectures using Couchbase's cross datacenter replication technology.

In addition, the new Couchbase Server 5.5 combines the power of SQL and the flexibility of JSON to offer simplified application management and operational agility. With new features including ANSI joins, Eventing, and Autonomous Operator for Kubernetes, the goal is to allow enterprises to more easily develop and deploy applications across multi-cloud environments to create exceptional experiences for customers and employees.

With the Couchbase Data Platform, organizations can transition workloads from relational databases and accelerate deployment of applications in multi-cloud environments. The platform’s built-in enterprise security features also offer field-level encryption to protect sensitive user data, in addition to the flexibility to meet new data regulations such as GDPR. The Couchbase Data Platform includes recently-launched Mobile 2.0, which extends business critical applications to the edge securely and easily, regardless of Internet connectivity.

Couchbase Server 5.5 improves developer agility by enabling them to build enterprise grade applications with new capabilities, said Ravi Mayuram, CTO and senior vice president of engineering, Couchbase.  In addition, Mayuram added, with the GDPR compliance deadline around the corner, Couchbase has addressed operational capabilities in areas such as data manageability and security as customers increasingly put more and more mission-critical data into the Couchbase Data Platform.

Couchbase Server 5.5 will be generally available in the summer; Couchbase Mobile 2.0 is generally available today. For more information, visit
