This new Quick Start automatically deploys the Couchbase Data Platform on the Amazon Web Services (AWS) Cloud. The Quick Start was created by AWS partners Couchbase and ClearScale in partnership with AWS.

Designed to power engaging mobile, IoT, and web applications, the enterprise-class Couchbase Data Platform includes Couchbase Server and Couchbase Mobile. Couchbase Server is a cloud-native, NoSQL database designed with a distributed architecture for performance, scalability, and availability. It enables developers to build applications by leveraging the power of SQL with the flexibility of JSON. Couchbase Mobile includes a fully integrated embedded database, built-in security, and real-time automated sync with the highly scalable Couchbase server.

The Quick Start deploys Couchbase into a new or existing infrastructure in your AWS account. It uses Amazon Machine Images (AMIs) from AWS Marketplace, and provides two subscription options: Bring Your Own License (BYOL) or hourly pricing. The deployment is automated by AWS CloudFormation templates that you can customize during launch. You can also use the templates as a starting point for your own implementation, by downloading them from the GitHub repository. The Quick Start includes a guide with step-by-step deployment and configuration instructions.
