Today, I’m excited to announce that we have officially expanded our Couchbase Cloud offering to support Microsoft Azure! Our strategy is to provide a customer-friendly database as a service that supports multiple cloud providers so there is no vendor lock-in.

 

Couchbase Cloud builds on the Microsoft Azure technologies and expertise of your favorite provider by delivering a high-performance, scalable and flexible NoSQL alternative. We are committed to making it easy to manage, secure and cost effective.

 

By using native Azure services, you can use the resource management tools you are familiar with: Compute, Managed Disks and Azure Kubernetes Service (AKS). To make it easy for developers, Microsoft-based application developers are supported with native .NET standard 2.x SDKs.

 

On Microsoft Azure, Couchbase Cloud supports the same capabilities as it does running in alternative clouds, using a common, easy to use, control plane. You can access all the power, flexibility, performance and utility of fully managed clusters of Couchbase Server. By leveraging Couchbase Cloud in your Azure account, all resources can be managed with the security and transparency you already enjoy.

 

Hybrid-cloud installations across ten Azure regions can now take advantage of Couchbase Cloud high availability clustering and powerful cross datacenter replication (XDCR) for migration and backups. No other popular JSON-based NoSQL database service available on Azure is more cost-effective than Couchbase Cloud.   

 

For those vendors who have made Microsoft technologies their corporate standard, Couchbase Cloud on Azure operates seamlessly within that stack, yet provides these organizations a high-performance, multi-cloud, multi-functional NoSQL solution that offers a higher degree of operational and costs transparency than is typical with competing databases-as-a-service. This helps customers maximize their cloud buying power.
