Modernize your architecture and drive innovative cloud solutions
Old technology is slowing down your financial institution. Monolithic legacy databases with expensive maintenance and punitive licensing won’t let you innovate for tomorrow or keep up with the consumers of today. You should be leveraging what digitally native challenger banks have already discovered: a NoSQL cloud database. With Couchbase database technology, you can modernize your financial institution and deliver real-time risk management, enterprise-wide analytics, digital banking, and automated government regulatory compliance.

Why Couchbase for financial services
Couchbase’s network-centric architecture with a high-performance replication backbone allows the database to be easily extended while maintaining performance at scale. Unlike relational databases like Oracle and MySQL, Couchbase supports ever-increasing workloads and spikes in throughput demands. Couchbase scales (in, out, up, or down) easily and without disruption to meet these demands. Unlike MongoDB™, Couchbase won’t run out of steam when you need it most.
Couchbase Analytics reduces the time to insight on operational data and simplifies operations for analytical data pipelines. Run ad hoc queries on financial data for real-time results on applications like fraud detection, trade analytics, and more, and apply real-time analytics to surface risk issues as they occur.
While other NoSQL databases require a third-party cache – adding to both cost and complexity – Couchbase has a fully integrated read-through and write-through caching layer. Couchbase’s memory- and network-centric architecture consistently delivers the sub-millisecond responsiveness that today’s users expect.
Cross data center replication
Couchbase provides five-nines availability with built-in high availability and flexible cross data center replication (XDCR) capabilities that supports disaster recovery and data locality requirements. With Couchbase, you have full control over the topology – unidirectional, bidirectional, or any configuration you need. Yapstone, a global payments platform, chose Couchbase for its active-active global deployment.
Powerful query language
Couchbase drives the flexibility and increased operational efficiency you need to not only get your financial services applications deployed quickly, but to keep up with the constantly changing data (risk assessment, market data, and more) in those applications. Couchbase’s powerful query language allows developers to easily query JSON data using familiar, SQL-like expressions. Tightly integrated full-text search, real-time analytics, and powerful eventing services make it easy to add new features to your application on the fly without moving data into and managing dozens of database technologies, finally putting an end to database sprawl.
Mobile to edge
Couchbase is the only NoSQL database that supports in-person payments, online banking portals, or mobile e-payments. Couchbase Mobile extends Couchbase Server to the edge with an embedded NoSQL database (Couchbase Lite) and a web gateway (Sync Gateway), enabling apps to work offline regardless of network availability, and powering use cases at the edge such as real-time fraud detection, personalization, and more.
