Couchbase’s Managed Database Services: Computing at the Edge

In this episode of The New Stack Makers podcast, Mark Gamble of Couchbase discussed edge computing, 5G, and the new Capella App Services offering. Couchbase provides a cloud-native, NoSQL database technology that’s used to power applications for customers including Carnival, Amadeus, Comcast, LinkedIn, and Tesco. The goal of edge computing is to bring data and compute closer to the applications that consume it. This speeds up data processing, said Mark, “because data doesn’t have to travel all the way to the cloud and back.” But it also has other benefits. “This serves to make applications more reliable, because local data processing sort of removes internet slowness and outages from the equation.”
