Manage, support, and drive real-time data insights at the edge

The explosion of data generated from devices and machines at the edge requires a data management solution that can manage those systems as well as capture and sync data securely. However, today’s solutions that rely on connected architectures (such as RESTful Web Services) do not meet the availability, performance, and security needs of today’s IoT applications. Couchbase provides full-featured embedded and cloud databases, seamless sync from cloud to edge, big data integrations, and guaranteed data availability, irrespective of network connectivity.

GE field technicians rely on Couchbase to monitor machinery, even in remote locations where network connectivity is never guaranteed.

Why Couchbase NoSQL for IoT data management

Flexibility: Integrate data from multiple sources

With Couchbase, eliminate database sprawl with one platform that spans IoT applications and devices. Couchbase manages and syncs IoT data from any cloud to every edge, allowing you to capture billions of data points and scale to support any number of endpoints.
 

Couchbase’s flexible JSON storage coupled with N1QL, full-text search, real-time analytics, and eventing services allows you to easily integrate all your data sources. Plus, migrate from relational systems with Talend and ODBC/JDBC drivers, and move data to and from with Spark and Kafka connectors.

Mobile: Integrated mobile capabilities to manage unstructured IoT data

Couchbase Mobile extends Couchbase Server to the edge with an embedded NoSQL database (Couchbase Lite) and a web gateway (Sync Gateway), enabling IoT data to be managed and synced at scale. With Couchbase Mobile, you can capture massive amounts of unstructured IoT data at the edge with a flexible data model and ensure seamless data sharing across users and devices (including peer-to-peer), online and offline with fast, efficient bidirectional data sync from the edge to the cloud.

Scale: Easier, more affordable scalability

Couchbase’s network-centric architecture with a high-performance replication backbone allows the database to be easily extended while maintaining performance at scale. Capture and consolidate application data across all channels in real time to create a single view of your data. Easily add new features and microservices on top of a flexible and scalable data platform. Unlike relational databases like Oracle and MySQL, with Couchbase you can meet any demand and linearly scale easily and without disruption.

Performance: Better performance and higher availability than any other database

While other NoSQL databases like MongoDB™ require a third-party cache – adding to both cost and complexity – Couchbase has a fully integrated read-through and write-through caching layer. Couchbase’s memory- and network-centric architecture consistently delivers the sub-millisecond responsiveness that today’s users expect.

Availability: Built-in high availability and disaster recovery

Couchbase provides five-nines availability with built-in high availability and flexible cross datacenter replication (XDCR) capabilities that supports disaster recovery and data locality requirements to ensure your product, cart, and customer data is always available. Combined with a microservices architecture, each component of a larger application continues to do what it does best, regardless of failures or load elsewhere. Couchbase powers IoT data management.
