This spring, Couchbase announced the availability of Couchbase Cloud on Microsoft Azure Marketplace to provide Azure customers access to the scalability, reliability, and agility of Couchbase Cloud. Also available on AWS Marketplace, Couchbase Cloud on the Azure Marketplace aligns with our strategy to provide a customer-friendly database-as-a-service (DBaaS) that supports multiple cloud providers–without vendor lock-in.

Couchbase Cloud builds on the Microsoft Azure technologies and expertise of our customers’ favorite provider by delivering a high-performance, scalable and flexible NoSQL alternative. We are committed to making it easy to manage, secure, and cost effective. And to make it easy for developers, Microsoft-based application developers are supported with a native .NET standard 2.x Couchbase SDK.

On Microsoft Azure, Couchbase Cloud supports the same capabilities as it does running in alternative clouds, using a common, easy-to-use, control plane. You can access all the power, flexibility, performance, and utility of fully managed clusters of Couchbase Server. By deploying Couchbase Cloud in an Azure account (in your own VNet), all resources can be managed with the security and transparency customers already enjoy.

Hybrid-cloud installations across ten Azure regions can now take advantage of Couchbase Cloud’s high availability clustering and powerful cross datacenter replication (XDCR) for migration and backups. And, according to Facet Digital, “Couchbase Cloud has the best pricing and performance we’ve seen from a DBaaS. We’ve reduced cost by 50% and improved productivity by 8,000%.”

For those who have made Microsoft technologies their corporate standard, Couchbase Cloud on Azure operates seamlessly within that stack, yet provides these organizations a high-performance, multi-cloud, multi-functional NoSQL solution that offers a higher degree of operational and costs transparency than is typical with competing databases-as-a-service. This helps customers maximize their cloud buying power.
