J. Chris Anderson, co-founder of Couchbase recently reported, “I just sent an email to our open source mobile community sharing some exciting developments we’ve made in the last months. I also want to share it with the blog, because I’m sure many of our database users also have mobile challenges. I believe sync is fundamental to connected devices, and sync is also an important bridge between the traditional database use cases, and the networked world. The JSON document model is well-suited to sync patterns, so I hope the approach we are sharing today will add another reason for people to try NoSQL.”

He goes on, “Our mobile team has been building out a new adapter to sync Couchbase Server with mobile devices. We’ve received early feedback from some of our users (thanks!) We’ve also been writing example apps and putting it through its paces, and we really like it. We like it so much that we’re planning to build the future of Couchbase for Mobile around it. (Veterans may recognize the name ‘Couchbase Mobile’ as our old mobile database from 2011. We’re now repurposing the name as an umbrella for our overarching effort, including the server-side components as well as the native mobile database.)”
