Quantic, Lotum choose Couchbase Capella for point of sale platform and mobile gaming

Quantic and Lotum have both recently decided to use the Couchbase Capella platform for their businesses as they scale enterprise and consumer applications at the network edge.

Quantic is utilizing Couchbase Capella to enhance its cloud-based point-of-sale platform while Lotum has chosen the platform to help improve its mobile gaming experience.

Quantic says the company chose Capella Database-as-a-Service (DBaaS) on AWS as its database due to its performance, scalability and ease of use.

Quantic’s previous NoSQL database could not keep up with its increasing customer base and product enhancements, leading to siloed platforms and downtime issues. As the workload increased, company executives recognized that they required a new database platform to meet the demands.

“As our customer portfolio expanded, we quickly realized that the database we had in place before Couchbase wasn’t getting the job done. It couldn’t scale at the enterprise level and managing all of our clusters placed a huge strain on developers,” says Vigyan Kaushik, co-founder and CEO of Quantic.

Since Quantic adopted Capella, their developers have enjoyed increased productivity, responsiveness, and the capability to innovate quickly for customers.

In addition to increased performance and scalability, the company says that Capella has allowed Quantic’s customers to experience real-time data with instant updates and an immediate positive impact on indexing and developer workloads.

“With Capella’s impressive price performance and unique edge capabilities, our customers’ applications can remain synced, even during internet outages, while also providing developer teams with greater agility,” adds Kaushik.

Lotum leverages Couchbase Capella to improve mobile gaming experience

Lotum, a provider of mobile gaming applications, has selected Couchbase’s Capella Database-as-a-Service on Google Cloud to power its most popular game, 4 Pics 1 Word.

The company says this move will allow Lotum to increase performance and scale while providing customers with a synchronized gaming experience across multiple devices.

“We’re continuing to grow at a rapid pace, with 800 million downloads worldwide. We need to ensure the gaming experience is seamless, especially when traffic is unpredictable,” says Lars Schmeller, the team lead at Lotum. “This needs to happen regardless of the device gamers decide to use.”

Lotum selected Capella App Services to provide increased application speed, scalability and offline-first capabilities for its most popular game. Lotum says Capella’s App Services synchronizes data in a secure, stable and scalable way, providing players with an uninterrupted gaming experience that is always available and fast regardless of internet connectivity.

“The mobile gaming market continues to expand, with consumers spending $41.2B during the first half of 2022 alone,” says Ravi Mayuram, the CTO of Couchbase. “Given the hyper-growth and the fierce competition in this market, it has become paramount for game developers to offer an experience that captures the attention of gamers.”

According to Couchbase, Capella is a managed DBaaS that offers database flexibility and reduces the need for developers to manage databases while providing an increasing ROI as users scale. Its real-time, memory-first architecture ensures millisecond responses for highly interactive applications.

Couchbase launched its Capella DBaaS on the Microsoft Azure cloud platform early this year to offer customers streamlined deployment and maintenance, the company says. For further insights into Couchbase’s role in edge computing, see this EdgeIR Fireside Chat interview with Mayuram.
