Couchbase, Inc. is no couch potato.
The company just announced that it is experiencing massive interest in its NoSQL mobile products, including “more than 100,000 developers in its community, adoption by large enterprises, and a rapidly growing ecosystem of systems integrators and resellers.”
According to an announcement from the firm, “Since its introduction in May 2014, Couchbase Mobile has powered the transition to the next phase of mobile app development: a new generation of mobile apps that work with or without a network connection.”
Seriously? Yes, seriously: offline.
“The day is quickly arriving when mobile apps will only meet user expectations by delivering the same experience offline as they do online. We see a huge shift in the market as app developers and large enterprises adopt this mindset and only build apps that work regardless of connectivity,” said Bob Wiederhold, CEO at Couchbase. “The reason for Couchbase Mobile’s accelerated success is simple: it makes it easy for developers to build the new generation of mobile apps. And our performance and ease of use advantage make Couchbase uniquely positioned to take advantage of this opportunity.”
The genius is that Couchbase Mobile delivers a solution that enables developers to quickly build always-available, always-responsive mobile applications.
“Couchbase Mobile includes three components: Couchbase Lite, Couchbase Sync Gateway, and Couchbase Server,” explains the company. “Taken together, these products provide developers with a powerful, new platform for building robust and network-independent mobile apps, dramatically reducing the code needed to manage data synchronization and substantially accelerating time to market.”
Current clients have good things to report.
“We evaluated several offerings, including MongoDB and FeedHenry, but only Couchbase Mobile enables our app to be fully functional whether it is online or offline. This is really a game changer for us,” said Catherine Woolgar, the chief technology officer and co-founder of SmartTrade App. “Our evaluation showed that only Couchbase could provide the mobile components, fast replication and scalability we need. Couchbase is also able to provide us with the level of community support we were after – both now as we are deploying the solution and in the future as we look to adopt Couchbase N1QL for increased responsiveness.”
