Capella is Couchbase's fully managed Database-as-a-Service (DBaaS) designed to deliver high performance and scalability.
#Module Federation

Challenges & Goals

Our goal was to streamline the developer experience on the Capella platform. We aimed to reduce the complexity of database interactions and improve efficiency by integrating advanced AI capabilities. The challenge was to seamlessly incorporate these AI functionalities without disrupting existing workflows. Specifically, we wanted to enable developers to write queries and manage databases using natural language, thereby minimizing the learning curve and reducing errors. Ensuring that the AI could handle diverse and complex queries with high accuracy was another significant challenge. Additionally, enhancing the overall user interface to make the AI features accessible and intuitive was crucial. We also sought to ensure that the integration would be scalable, supporting a broad range of applications and user scenarios, from small projects to enterprise-level operations.

To address these challenges, we integrated Large Language Model (LLM) APIs with Couchbase Capella. This integration enabled Capella iQ to assist developers in real-time, offering intelligent code suggestions, automating repetitive tasks, and providing instant query optimizations. Our solution focused on enhancing the natural language processing capabilities to ensure accurate and context-aware assistance. We revamped the frontend to incorporate intuitive interfaces for natural language query inputs and real-time AI feedback. By creating a seamless and user-friendly experience, we ensured that developers could easily leverage AI functionalities without steep learning curves. Additionally, we provided comprehensive support and training materials to facilitate rapid adoption and effective use of Capella iQ’s capabilities.
