Introducing Couchbase 08 Feb, 2011
Ooh now this is an interesting development: Damien Katz: CouchOne + Membase = Couchbase
Together as Couchbase, we’ll have the fastest, most scalable (both scale up and scale down) NoSQL solution. We will become the standard storage for mobile devices, and the standard server technology for syncing them all together. Our unified solution will dramatically simplify your technology stack and maintenance for building fast responsive apps that scale to millions of users, and also scaling down to phones so people can work and play even when not connected to the network.
Now that’s a vision / mission statement / objective / call-it-what-you-will. CouchDb has always offered a replicating, mobile-friendly document-based data store, and Membase is one of those ridiculously scalable, high-availability databases. So combining the two to come up with the best of breed NoSQL solution is most definitely going to garner the new company some attention; I wish Damien and the team the very best of British!
(Couchbase also has a great tag-line:
Is it us, or did databases just get a lot more awesome?)
