Build Better Mobile Apps with NoSQL

Mobile data storage, access, sync and security made easy

Key requirements for mobile applications

Offline Support

Today’s apps need to work everywhere – in the air, underground, in tunnels, and in busy lobbies – places where network connectivity is no guarantee. To work with or without a connection, the database needs to support synchronization and conflict resolution.

The Couchbase Solution

Couchbase Lite, our embedded database, allows you to store data locally so your app will continue to work offline. When a network connection is restored, Sync Gateway securely syncs data between Couchbase Lite and Couchbase Server.

Multi-platform support

Beyond iOS and Android, you need support for platforms like web, embedded systems, IoT devices, and wearables.

The Couchbase Solution

Couchbase Lite is built natively from the ground up and supports all major platforms and operating systems, including iOS, tvOS, watchOS, OS X, Android, Linux, Windows, Unity, Xamarin, PhoneGap/Cordova, and HTML5.

Mobile client and server database support

Your database needs to support your data storage, access, transport, and security needs at every tier in the application stack, including the client, web/app/middle, and database tiers. You also need to securely access and sync data over the web.

The Couchbase Solution

Couchbase Mobile addresses your needs at every tier in the application stack. Couchbase Lite securely stores data on the device, Couchbase Server securely stores data in the cloud, and Sync Gateway secures access and sync over the web.

Optimized bandwidth utilization

Data synchronization should be optimized for device and network resource utilization. Your database should minimize storage, network bandwidth, and battery usage on the device, across the internet, and in the cloud.

The Couchbase Solution

Instead of having to make constant calls over the network to transport data, developers can sync data and store it on the device in Couchbase Lite. As a result, network bandwidth is used less frequently and cloud resource utilization, device data storage, and device battery usage are all minimized. Couchbase Mobile automatically invalidates and updates data throughout the entire stack as needed.

Enterprise security

Applications must access, transmit, and store data securely throughout the entire database stack. You need a database that includes security for authentication, data-at-rest, data-in-motion, and fine-grained read/write access.

The Couchbase Solution

Couchbase Mobile provides end-to-end security with: 256-bit AES full database encryption for data-at-rest on device; secure transport using TLS for data-in-motion; user and role-based access control (RBAC); and file system encryption for data-at-rest in the cloud.

Choosing the right mobile database for your app can be difficult with all of the options in the market today. This white paper helps you evaluate and choose the best mobile database for your needs based on six key evaluation criteria including platform support, data security, data modeling, conflict resolution, and synchronization.
