Mobile Storage Solutions on NoSQL Platforms

Data is everywhere and it’s no small feat creating the right app for data storage. Building a mobile app with local data storage capabilities can be a daunting task —but it doesn't have to be.

DBTA recently held a webcast with Priya Rajagopal, principal product manager, Couchbase, who examined the main challenges of an offline or offline-first storage solution and discuss how users can overcome the toughest obstacles using NoSQL with JSON documents.

Mobile storage is the perfect choice for companies looking to create offline first apps, have an offline-only store, and improve user experience/start up time, Rajagopal explained.

Using NoSQL to create a mobile way to store data provides benefits such as:

  • Non Relational
  • Unstructured/ Semi-structured
  • Horizontally Scalable
  • Distributed
  • Many flavors

Couchbase offers a data platform on its mobile application that can guide users to create their own areas to store data.

Couchbase Lite is a lightweight embedded NoSQL database with full CRUD and query functionality that provides a secure web gateway with synchronization, data access, and data integration APIs for accessing, integrating, and synchronizing data over the web.
