Couchbase Leapfrogs Competition with Delivery of World’s First Mobile NoSQL Database and Sync Solution

 

Businesses adopting a mobile first strategy want a better way to build mobile applications.  Couchbase Mobile enables mobile application developers to quickly and easily build mobile applications that are always on, with or without a network connection, and that are able to easily sync data of all types to the cloud – or with other devices. The release of Couchbase Mobile is further increasing demand for Couchbase technology.
