Sync Gateway is a web-based gateway for bidirectional data synchronization between the cloud and embedded apps on smartphones, tablets, IoT devices, and custom embedded devices. It works in tandem with the Couchbase Lite embeddable database and manages secure data access.
What makes Sync Gateway different?
Sync Gateway is a secure and feature-rich data sync solution for mobile and IoT applications. You can choose to sync data on demand or in real time subject to network availability. And built-in delta sync ensures only the data that has changed is synced.
Let us build your data sync for you
Synchronize data behind the scenes automatically. Smart-pause when the network is lost. Resume when it’s restored.
Use granular role-based access control. Take advantage of third-party OpenID Connect providers or bring in custom providers.
Scale Sync Gateway nodes up or down as needed to handle changes in capacity demands. Nodes are "shared-nothing," so no need to coordinate any state.
Customize conflict resolution, efficient data routing, and stringent authentication and authorization to ensure the best app experiences.
Sync Gateway Key Capabilities
Sync Gateway is the synchronization server in a Couchbase Mobile deployment. It’s designed to provide data sync for large-scale interactive web, mobile, and IoT applications. Sync Gateway supports multi-tiered hierarchical sync topologies to fit any cloud-to-edge architecture.
Securely sync mobile apps from cloud to edge. Couchbase provides security of data between your web, mobile, and IoT apps running Couchbase Lite and your backend Couchbase Server, as well as between cloud and edge data centers, including Couchbase Capella.
Built-in data integration APIs
Use secure RESTful APIs for accessing and managing data over the web and webhooks to integrate with external web clients, data stores, and services.
Enforce read and write access from the Scopes and Collections level down to individual user and role. Admin REST API enforces authentication and role-based access control by default. Take advantage of third-party Open ID Connect providers or bring in custom providers.
Elastically scalable in real time
Vertically and horizontally scale Sync Gateway nodes to handle changes in capacity demands. Apply tunable read and write scaling options to meet performance demands.
