Nexon, a global leader in virtual world games and massively multiplayer online role-playing games (MMORPG), uses Couchbase Capella Database-as-a-Service (DBaaS) for greater developer agility. With Capella, Nexon achieved a faster time to market with its launch of Blue Archive, which was released worldwide in 2021. Capella's high availability and distributed memory-first architecture delivers a consistent performance experience for players as game adoption grows.
