Couchbase Claims It'll Lead the NoSQL Market by 2015


Don’t tell Oracle's Larry Ellison, but NoSQL databases are the future of the enterprise. Yesterday’s databases weren’t built to handle today’s avalanches of data streaming from social, mobile, web transactions, the Internet of Things and God knows what’s next.

And Couchbase will be the NoSQL database that enterprises who are serious about winning the future will choose, according to Bob Wiederhold, CEO of Couchbase. He said that NoSQL databases have gone through an evolution that began four or five years ago when developers discovered and downloaded technologies like MongoDB to play with at home.

“They liked the ease of development, so they brought them to work and built lightweight applications,” he added.

This was an important period in NoSQL adoption, he continued. It set the stage for 2013 when enterprises decided that NoSQL was ready for prime time and that it could be used for mission critical applications.

“This is when Couchbase took off as company,” he said. “It’s when companies like AT&T, Walmart and eBay began to rely on us, the enterprise NoSQL leader for running high performance mission critical applications."
