    Datanami Couchbase Eyes IoT with Mobile NoSQL Database
    Couchbase sees the new mobile NoSQL database it rolled out yesterday giving developers powerful new tools for building applications that store and process large amounts of data on smartphones, tablets, and other devices that are part of the Internet of Things (IoT). Couchbase Lite is a full-featured NoSQL database that stores data in the JSON format and runs natively on iOS, Android, and Java; a .NET version for Windows devices is in beta. The mobile database connects to a primary Couchbase database via the Sync Gateway, a new component that runs next to the primary database on the cloud-based server. Together, the three products make up the Couchbase Mobile offering.

    Application Development Trends Couchbase NoSQL Database goes Mobile
    NoSQL database vendor Couchbase Inc. is seeking to let developers build always-available, data-driven apps for mobile users wherever they are, even when they don't have connectivity to the cloud. The Couchbase Mobile suite was released yesterday, featuring three components, including an embedded, small-footprint, JSON-based NoSQL database called Couchbase Lite. The new mobile database is a smaller version of the company's cloud-hosted Couchbase Server database, also part of the suite. Now developers can build apps that store data in a device's embedded database so they work even when a user is offline. When connectivity to the server is restored, Couchbase Sync Gateway -- the third component -- will synchronize the data with Couchbase Server.

    PCWorld The Couchbase Database goes mobile
    Couchbase is extending NoSQL to mobile devices with a new product suite that allows an app developer to install its database directly on the device itself, allowing apps to function even when they’re not connected to the Internet. The suite also includes tools to seamlessly synchronize data between a Web server and the mobile client, to keep users up-to-date during those times when they are connected. Some users become frustrated at their apps’ inability to function offline, which happens because much of the data they need to operate resides on a server.

    Wall Street Journal A New Effort to Get Apps Working Underground
    Apart from insufficient battery life, what’s the other big annoying thing about your smartphone? How about the fact that most apps don’t work if you don’t have an Internet connection? That’s especially the case on those commutes underground. While some countries have wired up their subways, many places still don’t let you connect to the outside world when you’re deep underground. This is due to the fact that, to use apps like chat, banking, and streaming services, we need to communicate with cloud servers over an Internet connection. Or do we?

    Forbes Couchbase Ups The Mobile Developer Ante
    There’s a trend towards database vendors delivering peripheral solutions to make their products more compelling to developers. A good example of this is in the mobile connectivity space where Cloudant (since acquired by IBM) earlier this year rolled out an open source Android library to enable developers to ensure data was easy to sync between devices. The pay of for Cloudant, of course, was that by providing the toolset, it encouraged more developers to use its database product.

    InformationWeek Couchbase Releases NoSQL Mobile Platform
    Couchbase is nothing if not ambitious. It's challenging Cassandra and DataStax as the scalability champion in the NoSQL arena while taking on MongoDB as a JSON-handling document database. On Wednesday, the company added a third front: a mobile database platform. Couchbase Mobile, which was launched in public beta in September, addresses the problem of keeping mobile applications running whether they're connected to networks or not. To ensure consistent performance and data synchronization, the platform provides three components: the Couchbase Lite mobile database, Couchbase Sync Gateway, and the central Couchbase Server.

    SD Times Couchbase reimagines mobile app development
    May 21, 2014 — Couchbase wants to change the way mobile applications are built. The NoSQL database company has just released Couchbase Mobile, a new suite of products that allows developers to build apps without the need for Internet connectivity. “Until now, mobile applications were built with the requirement that data must be stored in the cloud because it has been too hard to store and sync data from the device,” said Bob Wiederhold, Couchbase’s CEO. “Couchbase Mobile changes all that. Our mobile products give developers everything they need to build always-available and always-responsive applications in a fraction of the time it currently takes. With Couchbase Mobile, the network no longer impacts application performance. When the network is unavailable, the app just works.”

    The Register Couchbase lashes Lite database to cloud with Sync service
    If there is one thing that irritates a mobile device user above all else it's the way some apps will chug along perfectly happily for several hours then suddenly enter the lifeless purgatory known as "syncing" as they try to pull some data from a remote cloud server over a rubbish mobile network. Now, database startup Couchbase is trying to change that with a new locally deployable database management system and syncing service that can be bundled in with an application.

    Computing UK Big data case studies: travel and business services
    Imagine that you are a travel agent. A customer comes in asking about flights from London Heathrow to Rio de Janeiro on 6 June. Solving this problem, you will probably agree, is not too tricky: simply obtain a list of airlines flying out of Heathrow on that day, check departure and arrival times, prices and availability, look at stopovers and other details and advise the customer accordingly.

    InfoWorld OpenStack now does NoSQL
    Tesora's plan is to have MongoDB be manageable under Trove as a first-class citizen, allowing instances of both databases to run side by side within OpenStack. As with MySQL, MongoDB is hardly the only NoSQL solution of its kind out there; CouchDB, Riak, and Couchbase all come to mind. But it's next to impossible to go wrong by starting there, given MongoDB's broad adoption as compared to its competitors, not to mention the burgeoning demand for MongoDB expertise.
