Couchbase Mobile 1.4 Announced

Couchbase Mobile 1.4 has been released and is available for download. The company states that with this release, you will be able to scale Couchbase Mobile on-demand so as to support millions of mobile/IoT devices and users.
 
Sachin Smotra,  in the official blog, states,
 
“Join me in a webinar on Thu Mar 9, at 10:00 AM PST to dig deep into results from our performance labs and delve into “Offline-First” architecture that companies like GE, Becton Dickinson, Doddle, and more are using to power their next-generation mobile and IoT applications.”
 
Couchbase Mobile 1.4 has also gone on to introduce Sync Gateway Accelerator, that is, a new component which goes on to enable you to increase the system capacity by up to 6x.
Just like the typical Sync Gateway deployment, each node will go on to maintain a channel cache. The channel cache, then, will go on to receive the mutation stream from Couchbase Server, and it applies the appropriate security filters for access control. Also, it goes on to generate the changes feed passed to downstream clients.
 
The company states,
 
“In Couchbase Mobile 1.4 the mutation feed from Couchbase Server can be sharded across multiple Sync Gateway Accelerator nodes to create a distributed channel cache.”
 
Each of the Sync Gateways can be used for distributing channel cache in order to efficiently applying the security filters. 
 
The Sync Gateway Accelerator can be scaled horizontally, in a similar way as Couchbase Server and Couchbase Sync Gateway, so as to create a cluster that can easily handle up to 6x write capacity. Along with this, the company has also made bug fixes and minor enhancements. For more information, check here.
 
LINQ support for .NET is now available and the company has now added support for “select”, “where”, “aggregate” and a few other keywords to help you query data natively in .NET.
