Couchbase Introduces Developer Experience for Capella

Couchbase Inc., a cloud database platform company, has enhanced its database-as-a-service (DBaaS) Couchbase Capella. The Capella user experience is inspired by technologies that developers already use to build modern applications. The Capella experience boosts productivity so developers can build next-generation applications more easily.

Today’s developers have an array of powerful tools and services at their fingertips, but according to Redmonk there is a developer experience gap. While developers and development teams have the resources, they must also invest time managing issues with highly complex, multi-factor developer toolchains. Analyst Stephen O’Grady said, “In order to make the life of a developer easier, rather than harder, a quality developer experience is focused on allowing developers to use the tools they’re familiar with, or at least closely mimicking those tools.”

The fresh user interface presents key developer tools, tasks and journeys front and center when building applications with Capella. Developers that are new to Capella will find it familiar, with design and navigation inspired by popular developer-centric tools like GitHub. Additionally, in-product help and tutorials have evolved and are easier to find, making it quicker to get answers if questions arise.

Leveraging its memory-first architecture, Capella delivers responses within milliseconds for interactive and personalized applications. Capella features a high-data density storage engine with new compute and storage advantages. For example, performance processing is up to four times faster while using up to 10 times less memory. With Capella, customers can optimize towards smaller, more-affordable clusters that hold and process more data with higher processing throughput power.

Capella also offers enhanced security and single sign-on capabilities. Additionally, Capella and Couchbase have completed a SOC 2 Type II audit and can support customers in the building of HIPAA-compliant applications. These enhancements meet broad enterprise requirements for cloud applications.

In addition to investing in the Capella developer experience, Couchbase is investing in and committed to growing its developer community. Designed to support and empower Couchbase’s growing community of users and contributors, the Couchbase Ambassador Program allows developers to share their knowledge and expertise with broader developer audiences. The program provides tools and resources to empower ambassadors to speak at events, organize community meetups and create content to grow the Couchbase community.
