Couchbase serves the modern needs of application developers by providing the greatest strengths of SQL, NoSQL, and NewSQL in a single database. Couchbase is built for microservices and for serverless, consumption-based computing on the cloud, delivering edge computing for mobile and IoT devices that are connected only occasionally or locally.
Couchbase’s distributed architecture is designed to avoid a single point of failure. This enables elastic scaling, workload isolation, and real-time data replication for high availability, global geo-distribution, and disaster recovery.
Capella is a fully managed cloud Database-as-a-Service (BBaaS). It's the easiest and fastest way to get started with Couchbase.
Couchbase Server can be downloaded and installed anywhere, including Windows, Linux, and Mac.
Couchbase Lite runs as a standalone embedded database on mobile, desktop, and edge devices and is capable of reading/writing data even while offline. Data can be synchronized automatically with Sync Gateway or Capella App Services.
Couchbase runs more easily within Kubernetes when you use the official Couchbase Autonomous Operator. This operator provides a Couchbase-specific API for managing your database clusters.
Couchbase is a multi-model database that supports capabilities including key-value, SQL++, full-text search, analytics, eventing, cross data center replication, and more.
Access NoSQL JSON data with a full implementation of the familiar and popular SQL syntax (yes, this includes JOINs!).
Look up data as efficiently as possible with a direct key lookup.
Add a real-time search engine-like index to your data without copying or moving it into another tool.
Perform complex BI and analytics queries on your data without impacting performance. Includes a full SQL implementation.
Use the Eventing service to execute custom code whenever data is modified.
Synchronize data in real time between data centers using cross data center replication (XDCR).

Flexibility, performance, and scalability.
Couchbase is ideal for a wide and growing variety of use cases, including user profile, session management, catalogs, content management, and financial tech.

NoSQL databases access and store data differently than relational databases. However, Couchbase supports many of the best features of relational databases, including SQL and ACID.
Couchbase shares some things in common with other NoSQL databases, but Couchbase also has a variety of features and services that most NoSQL competitors can't match. These include a memory-first, shared-nothing architecture (built-in caching), full SQL capabilities, offline-first mobile capabilities, and more.
Despite the similar names and some shared history long ago, Couchbase and Apache CouchDB are two different technologies. Couchbase is not a fork of CouchDB (and vice versa), and they don’t have compatible APIs.
