Couchbase unveils 'lite' version of its open-source NoSQL database for mobile devices.

Couchbase, the software company responsible for the open-source NoSQL database of the same name, has launched JSON Anywhere, the NoSQL offering that is specifically designed for the mobile application market.

Couchbase has also unveiled three new products associated with JSON Anywhere; Couchbase Lite, Couchbase Sync Gateway and Couchbase Cloud.

The Couchbase JSON Anywhere strategy is targeted at mobile application developers that want to create data-centric mobile applications that are always available, regardless of network connectivity. Data stored in Couchbase Lite on a mobile device is synchronised with the Couchbase server in the cloud, aiming to make data-intensive applications more efficient and responsive.

Couchbase Lite is a secure, ultra-lightweight, native JSON-based NoSQL database built for the online/offline mobile world. It is the first native NoSQL database for mobile devices, providing native cross-platform support for iOS, Android and REST/HTML5.

The Couchbase Sync Gateway aims to enable reliable data sync to the cloud. Built on a shared-nothing architecture, the Couchbase Sync Gateway provides the high scalability required by mobile applications and solves complex distributed data synchronisation, including conflict resolution.

Couchbase Cloud provides a new developer 'sandbox' service for mobile developers to instantly access the Couchbase server with no installation or hosting requirements and is available immediately for developer use.

Couchbase SVP of products, Rahim Yaseen, commented on JSON Anywhere: "An explosive combination of the growth in the number of devices together with increasingly powerful device hardware footprints, in terms of cores and memory, opens up the potential for a new class of data intensive and device local applications.

"Couchbase has taken the leadership in providing the first JSON-based native NoSQL database for mobile that will power these applications. Our JSON Anywhere strategy is about JSON on the device, JSON on the wire and JSON in the cloud -- with easy sync across devices and users."
