Couchbase, the cloud database platform company, has updated its Database-as-a-Service Couchbase Capella. The latest release of Capella will be accessible by popular developer platform Netlify and features a new Visual Studio Code (VS Code) extension, making it easier for developers and development teams to build modern applications on Capella, streamline their workflows and increase productivity.

Coinciding with National Cloud Database Day, Couchbase is also extending its enterprise deployability and introducing new features, allowing customers to move more applications to Capella with a lower TCO.

Couchbase is also broadening Capella’s enterprise features and deployability so customers can move more applications to the cloud database platform. The new Capella enhancements deliver the following benefits:

  • Support for time series data. A new time series array function in Couchbase’s support for JSON will enable a broader set of use cases, such as IoT or finance apps. By using time series arrays, Couchbase is able to utilize all of its data access, processing and storage features including its patented array indexing and high-density storage engine. This approach will enable development teams to quickly and easily extend new features to their applications without adding complexity to their architecture or infrastructure, allowing them to be more agile and productive while driving cost efficiency.
  • Extending deployability of Capella. Couchbase has added over 10 new supported regions across the three major cloud service providers and larger instance sizes. Capella is also available directly in each of their marketplaces. Capella adds support for memory-only buckets (ephemeral databases) for caching and transient data use cases. Security and compliance capabilities are enhanced through Google Cloud HIPAA compliance and with private endpoints for Azure.
  • Enhanced management. Managing Capella is even easier now with the introduction of dynamic disk scaling, hibernation of clusters and the enabling of downloadable buckets. Also new is change data capture, which recognizes and automates change history on documents. This is then streamable via Kafka to other applications.

The new release of Capella will be generally available in the second quarter. Couchbase will host a webcast on June 7 and 8 to discuss what’s new in Capella and how customers can benefit from the latest enhancements.
