Couchbase has new release of ‘lite’ database for always available edge, mobile cloud apps

Couchbase, the creator of the enterprise-class, multicloud to edge NoSQL database, has released version 2.8 of Couchbase Lite and Couchbase Sync Gateway for mobile and edge computing applications.

This update, according to the announcement, gives organizations the power to take full advantage of a distributed cloud architecture, creating always-fast, always-on applications that guarantee business uptime even in a disconnected computing environment.

With version 2.8, Couchbase offers enterprises the latest advancements in mobile and edge computing via the latest peer-to-peer sync and Sync Gateway replication technologies.

Business-critical, offline-first applications that operate in disconnected computing environments for extended periods of time, such as emergency response applications, rugged field service devices, or airline handheld meal ordering systems, need to stay up and running to ensure service continuity, customer satisfaction, and in some cases even personal safety. These applications can only guarantee uptime through direct collaboration between the edge devices. Couchbase Lite 2.8’s peer-to-peer sync solution offers secure storage and bidirectional synchronization of data between the edge devices without the need for a centralized cloud-based control point, keeping data flowing and applications running 100% of the time.

Distributed cloud deployments with Sync Gateway replication technology

Enterprises that have adopted a cloud-centric model for deploying applications are now dealing with challenges of Internet latency and unreliability as well as data privacy concerns that can lead to poor customer experience and costly business downtime. The challenges can be overcome by shifting to a distributed cloud-to-edge architecture where only relevant data is stored in the cloud. However, for real time applications requiring 100% business availability and governed by stringent data privacy rules, data processing is done at the edge, closer to the source of data.

The new replication capability in Couchbase Sync Gateway 2.8, in combination with Couchbase Lite 2.8 and Couchbase Server, supports the distributed cloud model at every tier– from the cloud to the edge– securely synchronizing data between web, mobile, and IoT apps and the backend database as well as between cloud and edge data centers. The latest capabilities ensure that critical information never stops moving between the applications and the end users who need it.
