Mountain View, Calif., Aug. 30, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif.—August 30, 2018—Couchbase Inc., creator of the world’s first Engagement Database, today announced the launch of the first NoSQL autonomous operator for Kubernetes. Now available, the Couchbase Autonomous Operator for Kubernetes is an application-specific controller that vastly reduces complexity, human error and manual management of database services, resulting in streamlined operations, more efficient consumption of resources and cloud portability.
Couchbase Autonomous Operator extends the Kubernetes API to create, configure and manage instances of complex stateful applications on behalf of a Kubernetes user. It builds upon the basic Kubernetes resource and controller concepts, but also includes domain or application-specific knowledge to automate common tasks better managed by computers. Whether an enterprise is using a single-provider, hybrid cloud or cross-cloud strategy, Couchbase Autonomous Operator is deployment agnostic, thereby enabling multi-cloud deployment and migration seamlessly.
As Kubernetes continues to gain momentum and IT organizations increasingly adopt cloud computing and embrace newer technologies like microservices, mobile, IoT and more, Couchbase identified the following key roadblocks that hinder progress:
The Couchbase Autonomous Operator for Kubernetes was built to address and overcome these challenges for the enterprise by providing:
“As a software engineer, one of the things I am least excited about is managing shell scripts. The Couchbase Autonomous Operator for Kubernetes alleviates that pain and completely automates management of Couchbase on our Kubernetes cluster. It’s a game changer.”
--David Downey, Software Developer, BD Global Health
"The Couchbase Autonomous Operator for Kubernetes is a marvelous addition to the Couchbase ecosystem, reducing our IT administration overhead by at least 80 percent. It sets the bar for all other clustered databases in any cloud environment."
--Brant Burnett, Systems Architect, CenterEdge
“Couchbase and Red Hat are partnering to bring the benefits of the Operator framework for applications, like the Couchbase Data Platform, to the market. Our joint customers will benefit from adopting Couchbase’s distributed NoSQL database on OpenShift to provide modern application portability across hybrid and multi-cloud environments while increasing performance, agility and availability – while at the same time reducing operational costs and complexity. The Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform is a strategic deployment platform for the Couchbase Autonomous Operator, which is certified and available in the Red Hat Container Catalog registry this week.”
--Jack Baratta, Senior Director, Global ISVs and Alliances
“The Couchbase Autonomous Operator for Kubernetes sets a new standard for Kubernetes in production deployments. For the first time, a fully distributed, scalable, enterprise-class database that can be orchestrated by Kubernetes is generally available to enterprises wishing to automate the deployment, monitoring, scaling and managing of database applications both on-premises and in public cloud environments seamlessly. By automating these traditionally manually intensive services, enterprises can significantly compress their ‘time to market.’”
--Ravi Mayuram, SVP of Engineering and CTO, Couchbase
