Capella App Services is now on Google Cloud. Fully managed cloud-to-edge sync!

Build and deliver apps that work all the time, even without a network connection

Offline first

Couchbase Lite ensures that apps are always available regardless of network connections. Data is stored and processed when offline, and synchronized with backend data centers or Capella App Services when connectivity is available.

Developer friendly

Develop faster with full SQL support, simple-to-use APIs for database CRUD, full-text search (FTS) and query operations, and comprehensive platform and language support. Schema-less JSON format simplifies app upgrades without requiring tedious data migration.


Couchbase Lite has a small footprint, ranging from 1MB – 5MB depending on the platform. It’s well-suited for resource-constrained mobile and embedded devices.

Multiplatform support

Support for mobile platforms including iOS, Android, and Windows. Develop desktop and web server apps with our .NET and Java libraries. C-API support allows developers to build applications in C that run on nearly any embedded platform.
