Fully Managed — IBM Cloud service provides a fully managed, distributed JSON document database. Instantly deploy an instance, create databases, and independently scale throughput capacity and data storage to meet your application requirements. IBM expertise takes away the pain of hardware and software provisioning, patching and upgrades, while offering a 99.95 percent SLA.
Secure — Cloudant is ISO27001, SOC 2 Type 2 compliant and HIPAA ready. All data is encrypted over the wire and at rest with optional user-defined key management through IBM Key Protect. Cloudant also offers an EU-managed service, that ensures all data and operations are handled solely by EU citizens.
Global Availability — Available in all IBM Cloud regions and 55+ data centers across the world, Cloudant can easily be set up for disaster recovery between continents or scaling an app for a global release through a horizontal scaling architecture that can handle millions of users and terabytes of data to grow seamlessly alongside your business. All Cloudant instances are deployed on clusters that span availability zones in regions that support them, for added durability at no extra cost.
Data flexibility — Leverage a flexible JSON schema and powerful API that is compatible with Apache CouchDB™, enabling you to access an abundance of language libraries and tools to rapidly build new applications and features.
Durable replication — Move application data closer to all the places it needs to be — for uninterrupted data access, offline or on. Cloudant helps teams build Progressive Web Apps, develop with an offline-first architecture or manipulate data on edge devices.
Powerful serverless API — Enhance your applications with built-in key-value, MapReduce, full-text search and geospatial querying that go beyond simple bounding boxes. Stream the changes feed for seamless integration with event-driven applications and IBM Cloud functions.
