Rapid game development
and easy app updates

Developers can quickly create and enhance games, using Couchbase Server’s flexible JSON-based data model. No need to worry about complex schema changes every time you add a new feature.

Cost efficient

Couchbase Server’s capabilities include high throughput on commodity servers (like AWS EC2 servers) and horizontal scaling. This means fewer servers and manpower are required  than many other solutions, including MySQL which scales vertically and requires the purchase of larger, costly servers as your game grows.
