Couchbase on Kubernetes: a powerful data management duo

Couchbase on containers and Kubernetes provides a powerful cloud-native data platform with autonomous database management capabilities. Couchbase Autonomous Operator enables DevOps teams to run Couchbase as a stateful database application next to their microservices applications on a Kubernetes platform which also provides freedom from cloud vendor lock-in and supports hybrid and multicloud strategies. Autonomous Operator 2.0 is certified for Red Hat OpenShift and for Kubernetes services from Amazon Web Services (Amazon EKS), Microsoft Azure (Azure AKS), and Google Cloud (Google GKE) platforms.



Complicated deployment architectures


Database silos

Businesses that adopt microservices architectures for applications find it difficult to manage and scale siloed database clusters alongside those applications.

Cloud vendor lock-in

Toggling between cloud providers can be extremely complicated because there is little industry standardization, but going all-in with one provider may be costly.

High operational costs

Deploying and managing thousands of application and database instances across multiple geographies increases complexity, effort, and cost while reducing agility.

Couchbase is cloud-native and cloud-agnostic

Interoperability with any cloud has never been so easy

Autonomously run stateful applications for faster innovation

Unlocks developer productivity with self-service access to the database while standardizing development, test, pre-production, and production environments. It also avoids database silos by running, managing, and scaling the Couchbase database next to microservices applications on the same Kubernetes platform.

Secure, manage, and develop with ease

"The goal here is to reduce the operational complexity of deploying and managing the Couchbase cluster. It enables the customer to run a database on any infrastructure, on any cloud."

Anil Kumar
Director of Product Management, Couchbase

“For the first time, a distributed, scalable, enterprise-class database is orchestrated by Kubernetes for seamlessly automating the deployment and optimizing of database applications – both on premises and across public cloud environments.”

Bipin Jethwani
Principal Architect, AT&T Entertainment Group

"The Couchbase Autonomous Operator makes setting up Couchbase in a hybrid or private cloud environment behave exactly like a fully managed cloud database-as-a-service experience, greatly reducing the friction of deployment."
