Couchbase, Inc. (NASDAQ: BASE), the cloud database platform company, today announced a new Capella columnar service on Amazon Web Services (AWS) at AWS re:Invent 2023, enabling organizations to harness real-time analytics to build adaptive applications. Capella columnar is a new service that introduces a columnar store and data integration into the Capella Database-as-a-Service (DBaaS), thereby allowing for real-time data analysis on the same platform as operational workloads. By converging operational and real-time analytic applications into one database platform, Couchbase removes friction to deliver a premium customer experience.
“To gain a competitive advantage and accelerate business opportunities, organizations are investing in real-time, adaptive applications that are contextual, hyper-personalized and intelligent. Real-time analytics are paramount to delivering these adaptive applications, and AI is making them even better and more strategic,” said Scott Anderson, SVP of product management and business operations at Couchbase. “With columnar in our Capella DBaaS, for the first time organizations can easily build adaptive applications powered by real-time analytics in a single JSON-based platform. We are eliminating the latency gap that has forever existed between analytics and operational databases while making it easier for development teams to include the required real-time analytic measures into their adaptive applications.”
According to Forrester Research, “Moving data from transactional systems to operational systems and then to analytical systems is a barrier to making better decisions faster. Disparate data stacks also compromise the delivery of timely data to various applications, operational systems and into the analytics workflow, resulting in missed business opportunities.” The acceleration of AI creates an even greater challenge because having disparate database platforms introduces complexity that confuses the models being trained to power the application. Capella columnar solves these problems as it allows users to perform operational and real-time analytical processing with compelling performance and speed, all in one uniquely architected platform. Furthermore, both the application and the user benefit by experiencing no latency and receiving a more seamless, premium experience.
Capella columnar leverages AWS services as an integral part of the product architecture including Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2), Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3), Amazon Elastic Kubernetes Service (Amazon EKS), Amazon Managed Streaming for Apache Kafka (Amazon MSK) and AWS Secrets Manager.
Couchbase is attending AWS re:Invent in Las Vegas, November 27-December 1, 2023. Attendees can visit booth number 1095 to see a demo of Capella columnar and learn more about Capella for building adaptive applications.
