Cloud database platform company Couchbase recently announced that its Database as a Service (DBaaS) Capella, offered as a fully managed service, is available on Azure.

Couchbase Capella is a fully managed database with JSON documents and key-values with SQL access and built-in full-text search, event creation and analytics. It can be distributed globally via AWS and GCP through their data centers and availability zones. In addition, the company now provides the database in Azure, allowing its customers to flexibly use Capella across all three major cloud service providers, Infoq wrote on the topic.

The company made the service available first on AWS and has since made several enhancements to the DBaaS offering, including a new developer user experience, SOC 2 Type 2 compatibility, a fully managed backend designed for mobile, IoT and edge applications with App Services, and a new Magma HD storage engine that gives customers the ability to support more use cases with much larger data sets at high speed.

Microsoft offers Azure Cosmos DB, a competitive service comparable to Couchbase Capella. Couchbase previously compared the two offerings, with several differences, such as that Capella is memory-based, while CosmosDB is caching-based, and consumption is on a per-node basis versus per-unit queries.

Finally, developers can try out Capella by signing up for a 30-day period. Finally, customers who want to use Capella in Azure can purchase the offering from the Azure marketplace.
