PRESS RELEASE — MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., May 10, 2018 — Couchbase, Inc., creator of the world’s first Engagement Database, today announced the launch of Couchbase Managed Cloud. Offered in partnership with Rackspace, the solution is a fully-managed database service that allows IT teams to solve cloud and database infrastructure challenges and reallocate resources towards business initiatives that drive growth. With Couchbase Managed Cloud, Couchbase combines the world’s most powerful NoSQL technology with the capabilities and expertise of Rackspace, which provides true transformation as a service across applications, data, security, and infrastructure, to deliver a single solution for a unified customer experience.
Enterprises today are experiencing an explosion of data, and maintaining and managing that data in the cloud is no small feat. Couchbase Managed Cloud is designed to eliminate the tedious, time-consuming processes of managing database infrastructure in the cloud, enabling IT teams to focus on driving innovation. With Rackspace, Couchbase Managed Cloud delivers the database infrastructure that is backed by the leader in managed cloud services, along with its application services expertise and results-obsessed customer service known as Fanatical Support®.
Available this Spring, Couchbase Managed Cloud can be deployed directly within an organization’s public cloud environment alongside their other mission-critical applications–versus within a vendor’s public cloud environment–which will lead to reduced latency, increased performance and enhanced security. In addition, Couchbase Managed Cloud will deliver a unified data platform across multi-cloud architectures using Couchbase’s cross datacenter replication technology.
Key benefits include:
- Free up resources to drive innovation and accelerate time to market: Outsourcing the administration of database infrastructure frees up resources to drive business initiatives.
- Mitigate risks: Improve reliability with proactive maintenance, optimizations, and on-demand scaling of resources as needed; eliminate downtime with a single point of contact and 24/7/365 support model.
- Reduce costs:Reduce DevOps/DBA staffing while still getting access to cloud and DB experts. Scale out when needed and avoid idle infrastructure.
“Very commonly, software vendors offer managed services within their own cloud environments. Couchbase Managed Cloud is different in that it is deployed alongside an organization’s mission-critical applications in a public cloud. This approach provides businesses with greater control over how they use their data and where it resides; a key element as sensitivities around data security and privacy are heightened, especially with the looming GDPR deadline.”
–Carl Olofson, Research Vice President, Data Management, IDC

–Brannon Lacey, Vice President Product, Enterprise Applications Services, Rackspace
