Couchbase Claims It'll Lead the NoSQL Market by 2015

2014-6-october-the-wild-one.jpg

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."

Big Data Bits: MongoDB Edition + There's a Prize Inside

2014-03-July-Prize-Inside.jpgSmall pieces loosely joined in a non-zero sum world.

Write that phrase down and wrap your brain around it because that’s how the vendors who are shaping computing’s next platform are thinking. It’s not about “I win, you lose,” but about how well we can play and build something together.

And though that idea was verbalized by Cloudera founder Mike Olson (who borrowed from David Weinbereger’s book "Small Pieces Loosely Joined") at MongoDB World this week, we got an idea of how it might play out in computing’s third era as we watched MongoDB’s customers talk about game-changing solutions they built leveraging the world’s leading NoSQL database and other leading and emerging technologies.

Nuxeo Platform Integrates MongoDB #MongoDBWorld

You don't have to look any further than the lines of people waiting to get into MongoDB's first user conference in New York City today to understand the popularity of the NoSQL database. So it's not surprising that savvy companies are trying to get in on the action.

Take Nuxeo, for instance. The open source content management system (CMS) just integrated its platform with MongoDB to offer "high performance, availability and scalability of content centric business applications." 

Here's What You're Missing at #MongoDBWorld

MongoDB is not your daddy’s database, and you probably didn’t learn it in college.

But chances are good if you work just about anywhere in the next few years, you’ll find it there. Ok, maybe not everywhere, but at least in 75 percent of enterprises, said Dwight Merriman, the company’s chairman.

If that sounds ambitious, it’s reasonably well-grounded. Consider there have been more than 7 million downloads of the Open Source database, that 10,000 plus are participating “in the product” in meetups, user groups and such, and that the company has over 500 partners including some pretty notable vendors like IBM, Teradata and SAP, as well as other up and comers like Cloudera, Pentaho and Red Hat.

MongoDB has come from its initial release in 2009 to become the fifth largest database in the world according to DB-Engines, just behind PostgreSQL, MySQL, Microsoft SQL Server and Oracle.

What’s its goal? “We want to become the leading database in the world,” says Merriman. “But that will take time.”

We listened as industry analysts told us how leveraging Big Data and Analytics could help grow the bottom line; we learned how Facebook’s Graph Search might help you get found by recruiters (at the expense of your privacy); we watched Big Data vendors buy what they didn't want to build (or couldn't build fast enough); and we saw a NoSQL vendor with great promise get a humongous investment.
