KuroBase Becomes The First Company Ever to Offer Fully Managed DBaaS Hosting hosting of Couchbase

San Mateo, CA – October 16, 2013 – Today Silicon Valley-based KuroBase, Inc. launches its new Database-as-as-Service (DBaaS), a fully-managed cloud-based data store. This is the first element in the KuroBase™ Orchestration Platform Architecture which allows web, game and mobile app developers to manage and control data stores with unlimited scalability. With this release, KuroBase is the first company to offer a fully managed DBaaS hosting both the industry leading Couchbase NoSQL database and the recently released Couchbase Sync Gateway in the cloud. This enables small and mid-size entities to have affordable, online access to an enterprise level data platform for web and mobile applications.
“Most web and mobile application developers would rather invest their resources into developing products, not setting up and managing databases,” explains KuroBase CEO and co-founder Mohamed Hamedi. “Yet they are hindered by the lack of flexible, scalable, and easy-to-implement solutions. We created KuroBase to deliver the Database-as-a-Service, doing all the heavy lifting to get developers up and running in minutes.”
In addition, KuroBase and Couchbase have signed a partnership agreement to explore and expand new markets opened up by this breakthrough combination of products.
“We are excited to see KuroBase launch its new platform,” said Bob Wiederhold, CEO Couchbase. “Through our partnership, KuroBase will make the Couchbase Server available to small and medium-sized businesses and will extend our offerings from the Fortune 500 to the Fortune 50,000.”
The first KuroBase offering delivers a fully managed Couchbase database server in the cloud as well as the mobile-enabling Couchbase Sync Gateway, bringing the full Couchbase Server capabilities to all developers. At the core is the KuroBase Orchestration Platform that enables seamless provisioning of any service to support operational database and big data requirements. Further, since it is nearly impossible for most developers to predict how much data they’ll generate, KuroBase’s Elastic Storage removes disk allocation from the formula. Applications can continue to send and store data while the KuroBase Platform dynamically adjusts the database parameters to meet real-time needs.
KuroBase subscribers simply sign up for an account, and then create a database. As their data volume grows, the highly elastic KuroBase system expands to accommodate storage needs while ensuring performance. Meanwhile, the KuroBase platform handles all administration, failovers, and redundancy for its subscribers so developers can focus on their coding, not on tedious server management. In addition to a wealth of existing client SDKs, KuroBase’s Web API reduces development time and effort significantly.
