Couchbase Releases Couchbase Capella

Couchbase, Inc. announced its Couchbase Capella hosted Database-as-a-Service (DBaaS) offering on Amazon Web Services (AWS).

Capella delivers database flexibility for developers and performance at scale for enterprise applications, with the best price-performance of any DBaaS. Because Capella is fully managed and automated, customers can focus on development, improving their applications and reducing time to market, instead of worrying about operational database management efforts. 

"Modernization is accelerating for nearly every business and we are proud to be evolving our DBaaS to include a hosted offering purpose built for modern application developers," said Scott Anderson, senior vice president of product management at Couchbase.

With Couchbase Capella, customers benefit from the latest features in Couchbase Server 7, which fuses the best aspects of relational databases like SQL queries and distributed ACID transactions with the flexibility of a modern JSON document database.

"At Couchbase, we align our products and solutions to help turn customers' modernization strategies into realities. With the introduction of Couchbase Capella, we are offering customers the fastest, easiest and most cost effective way to deploy our modern database in the cloud for accelerated application development," Anderson continued.

Capella's flexibility supports a broad set of use cases reducing a customer's need to buy, deploy and manage additional databases or supporting technologies. As customers scale up their applications, Capella delivers price performance that is superior to competitors, allowing customers to do more for less on a dollar-for-dollar basis, while also saving time and effort.

"When developing for clients, we need flexibility, high performance and cost effective solutions," said Scott Bradley, principal engineer, Facet Digital. "Couchbase Capella is a single platform that gives us JSON document agility, in-memory caching speeds, text search and analytics, all accessed via the SQL our team already knows."

Top benefits include:

  • Easy as SQL. SQL users can develop against Couchbase Capella without learning another query language and they can deploy in just a few clicks.
  • Develop with agility across use cases. Developers get multi-model capabilities (document, key-value, full text search, analytics) and data structure flexibility allowing them to develop applications for operational, transactional and analytical workloads, all from a single vendor.
  • Premium performance and cost efficiency at scale. Couchbase Capella's unique real-time memory first architecture ensures millisecond responses for highly interactive and personalized applications while the price performance keeps improving as users scale.
  • Access to a wide range of AWS Cloud services. The Couchbase Capella control plane is built on AWS and integrates over 20 AWS services into its architecture including Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2), Amazon Elastic Block Store (Amazon EBS), AWS Lambda, Amazon GuardDuty and AWS Shield.
