We help you succeed with CouchDB

We specialize in CouchDB and offer a variety of services to help our clients make their products succeed. Our CouchDB Services range from consulting for those who are still in the process of considering which database fits their needs, to several development and production support plans for those who need help building or maintaining an existing CouchDB architecture.

Whether you’ve just started thinking about it, are taking first steps with it, or are already solidly betting on CouchDB, there’s a bunch of things you might be worried about:

  • Will it scale?
  • Is it secure?
  • Can we make this faster?
  • Where are we going to run into problems?
  • How do we make sure we’re moving in the right direction?
  • Are we wasting time in development or hardware in production?
  • And, most importantly: Who can we call when we need help?

Why CouchDB?

CouchDB is designed for ease-of-use, both in development and operation. Built around web standards like HTTP and JSON and with operational best practices in mind, CouchDB is a first choice in modern application development. With its relentless focus on reliability and data protection, CouchDB is ready for your mission critical systems.

CouchDB and its family of replicating projects like PouchDB, Cloudant and Couchbase Mobile are the only Open Source alternative to systems like Apple’s iCloud, Amazon’s Cognito Mobile Sync, Google’s Firebase and Microsoft’s Azure Offline Sync for Mobile Services. These are great solutions, but they all exhibit some form of vendor lock-in, or the risk of being sunsetted (such as Facebook’s commercial Parse offering). In this offline-first Backend as a Service model, CouchDB and its family are your only truly open option.

CouchDB is released under the business friendly Open Source Apache 2.0 License.
