The Internet of Things is made up of 6B+ devices
and by 2020 the number will reach 20B+

The Internet of Things (IoT) is made up of some 6 billion devices, and by 2020 the number will reach 20+ billion. That includes everything from smartphones and tablets to home appliances, medical devices, and sensors installed in cars, kitchens, hospitals, and warehouses.

IoT platforms and applications include four core components: the things themselves, the internet, a data management solution, and a synchronization solution that moves data from devices to a database. Unlike traditional legacy database technologies that are overwhelmed by the incredible volume, velocity, and variety of IoT data, the Couchbase data platform was designed to easily provide full-stack data management for all your IoT applications and platforms.

Couchbase manages data across the full IoT stack – from your devices at the edge, over the internet, to your backend database – enabling you to support millions of IoT devices and users and manage the massive amounts of data that IoT applications generate. From global leaders to digital startups, companies who are innovating in IoT are adopting the Couchbase data platform.

Key IoT use cases

On-device data management
Arrow

On-device data management

Whether the device is a phone or tablet, a wearable, a machine, a medical device, or a sensor, your IoT solution must store, manage, and secure its data locally – in real time, at all times.

Move data between device & database
Arrow

Move data between device & database

IoT devices must sync data to a backend database with low latency and low overhead. Your IoT solution must manage the movement of this data and do so securely and scalably, from end to end.

Data sharing between devices
Arrow

Data sharing between devices

For many IoT use cases, devices must connect to other devices and share data securely. Your IoT solution must support this sharing with or without an internet connection.

Management of streaming data
Arrow

Management of streaming data

Some IoT apps use data streaming to ingest and analyze data in real time. Your IoT solution must provide the efficient, reliable integration with streaming technologies like Spark, Kafka, and Hadoop to deliver real-time analytics and machine learning.

Offline-enabled apps and devices
Arrow

Offline-enabled apps and devices

Offline enabled apps, and devices: IoT devices and the apps that power them are in areas where network connectivity is not guaranteed. Your IoT solution must ensure that your app continues to work, and your device continues to collect and manage data, even if it’s offline.

Technical requirements for IoT platforms and applications

Full-stack data management solution

Managing IoT data from device to backend requires a solution that manages data throughout the full stack, end to end.
