What makes Couchbase Server different?

Built as an original multipurpose NoSQL database, Couchbase Server delivers unparalleled performance at any scale, run on-prem or in the cloud. Developers get the benefits of flexible JSON documents and object models, with SQL and key-value access, and hybrid vector and text search all built in – to build features faster. Our AI-powered coding assistant will help you get started. For architects and application owners, our sophisticated in-memory, active-active architecture delivers low latency around the globe – for high speed, no downtime, and happy users.

Enterprises choose Couchbase for its speed, NoSQL versatility, and the ease of SQL++

Server key capabilities

Couchbase is a distributed, transactional, multipurpose database for AI-powered applications. It does the work of multiple purpose-built databases, including vector and time-series. It caches data for speed, supports SQL for JSON, and scales linearly. It replicates and synchronizes to mobile apps, and helps simplify data architectures without sacrificing application features.

Fast: Unparalleled performance at scale

Deliver consistent, fast experiences at scale, powered by caching and our memory-first, active-active architecture. High-performance indexes underpin exceptional data access performance even with complex joins, predicates, and aggregations. And, with efficient, high-density key-value storage that holds terabytes per node, Couchbase significantly reduces the complexity of your clusters and the costs of your deployment.

Versatility of JSON: Unmatched agility and flexibility

Support rapidly changing application requirements with the flexibility of JSON. It can support multiple data access patterns at once, including programmatic key-value, SQL++ query, time-series arrays, vector arrays, graph relationships, metadata, analytics, and text or geographic search. This enables robust functionality within the application without creating unnecessary complexity in the data architecture.

Easy as SQL: Start with Capella iQ

SQL++ is SQL for JSON that supports joins, ACID transactions, user-defined functions, and more. Our iQ co-pilot helps you write SQL on Day 1. Couchbase also supports dynamic schema constructs that map to RDBMS, including buckets, scopes, collections, and documents.

Future-proof: Manage Couchbase your way

Deploy Couchbase Server in any cloud, at any scale. To reduce operational overhead, you can self-manage your deployment, use Kubernetes automation, or choose the fully managed Couchbase Capella™ DBaaS.
