Couchbase Introduces Couchbase Cloud
February 05, 2020

Couchbase introduced Couchbase Cloud, a fully-managed Database-as-a-Service (DBaaS).

Couchbase Cloud enables enterprises to host their data within their own Virtual Private Cloud (VPC) for greater control and ownership, and pay for only what they use. Customers can now experience best-in-class performance and availability from the most powerful NoSQL database technology available to the market as a fully managed service. With this announcement, Couchbase becomes the first SQL-on-NoSQL DBaaS that supports multiple cloud providers.

The service will launch this summer on Amazon Web Services and Microsoft Azure, followed by Google Cloud Platform. Early access is available by registering here.

A key difference between Couchbase Cloud and other DBaaS solutions is the separation of the control plane and data plane, resulting in more flexibility and better economics.

- Data plane resides in Customer’s VPC: Customers have full control of their data together with a host of other benefits including higher performance, lower latency, and stronger security.

- “Single pane of glass” control plane for multicloud management: Built on the latest in cloud innovation, including open source technologies Kubernetes, Prometheus, and Grafana, the fully automated control plane is used to conduct activities such as multicloud orchestration (where users can manage and deploy clusters across multiple clouds from one single view), user management, cluster management, monitoring, and billing--all from a single interface.

Couchbase Cloud decouples DBaaS from the underlying cloud infrastructure, which enables customers to purchase IaaS directly from their Cloud Service Provider and leverage reserved instance pricing to optimize total cost of ownership.

Couchbase Cloud also provides users with flexible packaging options to optimize solution costs based on business requirements. One option is on-demand hourly pricing, and another is the ability to purchase Couchbase Credits that can be used over a one year period. The use of credits is fully flexible with no usage limitations during the one year period.

Couchbase Cloud offers high availability that is unique to Couchbase Server. Thanks to its powerful cross datacenter replication (XDCR) capability, Couchbase is able to distribute across public cloud regions in an active-active configuration while providing data locality and disaster recovery. Built on the most powerful NoSQL technology, Couchbase Server delivers unparalleled performance at scale, in any cloud. With features like memory-first architecture and multidimensional scaling, Couchbase Server excels at supporting business-critical applications at scale while maintaining submillisecond latencies and 99.999% availability. Plus, with the most comprehensive SQL-compatible query language (N1QL), indexing, full-text search, eventing, analytics and support for multi-document ACID transactions, among other services, Couchbase Server offers the broadest range of capabilities to enable application modernization and migration from RDBMS.

Couchbase will be running an early access program this spring.
