Couchbase Mobile for Edge Computing

Couchbase Mobile securely syncs data from the cloud to the edge to the device, enabling you to store, query, search, and analyze your data anywhere – regardless of internet connectivity and speed – so your applications are always fast and always on.

Couchbase Mobile 3.1 simplifies apps and makes them more secure, scalable, and efficient

Seamlessly sync from the cloud to the edge

Couchbase Mobile maximizes business uptime, powering applications that are extremely fast, secure, and reliable, even where no internet connection exists. This is because Couchbase can store, process, and synchronize data anywhere – in the cloud, at the edge, and even directly on devices. Apps store and process data at the point of interaction without depending on slow and unreliable internet connections.

To deliver the fastest, most reliable apps possible, you need a database designed for edge computing

Scalable and always fast

Scale the number of edge locations and devices with the flexibility to add capacity in the cloud and at the edge. Data is stored and processed at the edge, closer to the applications that need it, so all access is local and fast.

Resilient sync

Get fast, efficient bidirectional synchronization of data between the cloud and edge devices, between the cloud and edge data centers, and directly between mobile devices. Choose from fully managed sync with Capella App Services, or install and manage Couchbase Sync Gateway yourself.

Enterprise-grade security

Secures data in motion and at rest with encryption and fine grained access control, supports multi-tenant apps and ensures compliance with data privacy regulations.

"Only Couchbase supports the distributed model at every tier, from the cloud to the edge, ensuring that critical information never stops moving between the applications and users that need it."
