Database developer Couchbase has announced the beta release of its Mobile Couchbase database system for Apple iOS devices. Couchbase claims that its Mobile Couchbase database is the first non-relational, or "NoSQL", database available to native iOS application developers.
Couchbase is available now to developers as an embedabble software library that can be integrated into new or existing applications. Couchbase is also touting its system's ability to provide cloud-based synchronization between a mobile device and a regular Couchbase server located on the internet.
Couchbase co-Founder Chris Anderson had the following to say about the company's new product:
"Mobile Couchbase for iOS solves a huge problem in application development -- how to build applications that run and synchronize with mobile devices. Sync has been an unsolved challenge and users are often turned off by slow applications, even when the slowness is due to network issues, not necessarily code. Now developers can take advantage of CouchDB's powerful sync capabilities to scale and share data across any mobile device on one of the most successful platforms."
