Overview

Couchbase Server is a NoSQL database, which has become the de facto standard for building Systems of Engagement. It is designed with a distributed architecture for performance, scalability, and availability. It enables developers to build applications easier and faster by leveraging the power of SQL with the flexibility of JSON.

The new string, date, array, and JSON object functions that have been added to N1QL simplify data transformations and provide richer query expressions.

Faster queries in N1QL are the result of several query engine performance enhancements across many types of operations, including joins and index scans.

The most innovative enterprises are introducing NoSQL to replace or augment legacy databases, including Oracle and Microsoft SQL Server. With Couchbase Server, they get the best of both worlds – the powerful querying and enterprise features of a relational database, combined with the scalability, performance, and flexibility of a NoSQL database.

To make the transition easier, Couchbase Server provides many of the same features found in relational databases.



Apache CouchDB is open source database software that focuses on ease of use and having a scalable architecture. It has a document-oriented NoSQL database architecture and is implemented in the concurrency-oriented language Erlang; it uses JSON to store data, JavaScript as its query language using MapReduce, and HTTP for an API.
