KuroBase Helps Manage Data Stores
KuroBase launched a fully managed, cloud-based data store, its new database as a service for small and midsize enterprises. Now web, game, and mobile app developers can manage data stores on a scalable platform.
“KuroBase is a cloud data platform that provides a high speed, low latency, cloud-based scalable and elastic platform for NoSQL databases” where customers can store data that will always be available when needed, according to the website. It adjusts database parameters to encompass new data stored in real time, constantly maintaining and monitoring content.
“Most web and mobile application developers would rather invest their resources into developing products, not setting up and managing databases,” says Mohamed Hamedi, KuroBase’s CEO and co-founder. “We created KuroBase to deliver the Database-as-a-Service, doing all the heavy lifting to get developers up and running in minutes.”
KuroBase hosts the Couchbase NoSQL database and the Couchbase Sync Gateway for developers in the cloud. The companies agreed to a partnership that will explore the markets created by KuroBase’s new products.
“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,” says Bob Wiederhold, Couchbase’s president and CEO.
