Architect your application to deliver speedy, contextualized, and real-time business-critical data
Today’s high-tech leaders have embraced next-generation database technology to build and run modern web, mobile, and IoT applications. Why? Because legacy technologies, including relational databases, are unable to keep up with the challenges in meeting the performance, scalability, availability, agility, and affordability requirements of their applications. This is why hundreds of companies in the high-tech space choose Couchbase to underpin their business-critical apps as they move away from monolithic solutions to microservice-based architectures, focusing on building engaging, responsive, and scalable applications.

Scale: Easier, more affordable scalability
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.

Performance: Better performance than any other database
While other NoSQL databases like MongoDB™ 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.

Availability: Built-in high availability and disaster recovery
Couchbase provides five-nines availability with built-in high availability and flexible cross datacenter 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.

Mobile: Integrated mobile capabilities support omnichannel experiences
Couchbase is the only NoSQL database with built-in mobile support. 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 personalization, peer-to-peer messaging and sharing, and more.

Flexibility: Lower costs and faster time to market
Couchbase drives the flexibility and increased operational efficiency you need to keep up with the constantly updated and changing digital communication data. 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.
