Couchbase, Inc. Key Developments

Couchbase Announces General Availability of Couchbase Server 4.5

Couchbase announced the general availability of Couchbase Server 4.5. This significant new release delivers powerful new capabilities that make it far easier for enterprises with deep SQL experience and relational database technology to adopt NoSQL for mission critical applications. Couchbase has enhanced its breakthrough, SQL-based query language N1QL (“nickel”), with new features like graphical tools for visually exploring the data model and building ad hoc queries. Additional enterprise capabilities include advanced security, as well as significantly faster queries and indexing that extend Couchbase’s performance leadership in the NoSQL industry. The N1QL query language, introduced in Couchbase Server 4.0, empowered developers and admins, for the first time ever, to use their SQL skills to access and query JSON data. Couchbase Server 4.5 builds on N1QL, adding new features that make it even easier for customers to introduce NoSQL into their existing architecture, and give them greater confidence in making the transition: Query Workbench – A built-in query editor for writing and executing queries in N1QL and immediately viewing the results. Query Workbench makes it fast and easy to run ad-hoc queries on the fly. Auto schema discovery – Allows data modelers to visually explore and understand the shape of their data, and lets admins easily manage data even as it quickly changes. This makes it easy to evolve from the structure of relational to the more flexible JSON format. Query monitoring and profiling – Admins can monitor individual queries and the nodes running queries to discover diagnostic and performance details, enabling faster troubleshooting. Couchbase Server 4.5 includes numerous improvements that extend its performance lead to many new types of use cases that rely on complex queries. For customers, performance advantages translate into significant cost savings (fewer resources required for a given workload) and better end user experiences. Select features driving improved query performance in Couchbase Server 4.5 include: Memory-optimized global indexes – Lets developers build global indexes using a highly optimized, in-memory and lock-free data structure. This delivers faster, fresher indexes and high performance queries under very high data modification rates. Array indexing – N1QL’s support of array processing within queries has been extended – now it’s possible to create an index of array elements ranging from plain scalar values to complex arrays or JSON objects deeply nested in the array, further improving query performance. Flexible JOINs – N1QL has been extended to support new query optimizations that more efficiently handle JOINs, increasing performance of these queries by orders of magnitude. Fast partial reads and writes with JSON documents – Allows data in a document to be added, removed or modified within a document – without the application having to read and write the entire document. This results in better network utilization and faster reads and updates for large documents. As more mission critical applications are deployed on Couchbase, security becomes an increasing concern. The new release introduced two advancements in security: Couchbase Server 4.5 uses X.509 certificates to provide strongly trusted on-the-wire encryption for client-server communications, whether within a single cluster or across multiple clusters or data centers. This new capability makes it simple for administrators to manage and rotate certificates without application downtime. The new release adds role-based access control (RBAC) for administrators. In addition to the existing encryption and auditing facilities, RBAC provides fine grained control over administrative access and simplifies compliance with governance rules.

Couchbase Announces Release of Couchbase Mobile 1.2

Couchbase announced general availability of Couchbase Mobile 1.2, a new release that makes it easier for enterprises and developers to build always available mobile applications. Gartner predicts that by the end of 2017, market demand for mobile app development services will grow at least five times faster than internal IT organizations capacity to deliver them. To make it easier for professional developers to build and deploy mobile applications, Couchbase is building the most advanced mobile database, which now includes enterprise class administration, security and performance. Couchbase Mobile 1.2 builds on the revolutionary Couchbase Mobile platform. Working with customers such as General Electric, Ryanair, CrowdComfort and Seenit, Couchbase designed and delivered new features that address enterprise needs for easier administration, better security and even greater performance at scale. Couchbase Mobile 1.2 reduces administration headaches and accelerates implementation time with new management controls for adding and removing nodes. Couchbase Mobile 1.2 also includes new install capabilities that simplify in place upgrades, making it easier to administer large enterprise deployments. Couchbase has built a reputation for satisfying the most demanding enterprise scale and performance requirements. Couchbase Mobile 1.2 extends this performance lead to mobile by introducing Couchbase’s new storage engine, ForestDB, in Couchbase Lite. Using ForestDB, Couchbase Lite 1.2 delivers 2 – 5x faster performance than the previous releases for key database operations including inserts, updates, deletes, queries and indexing. New optimizations for memory management also provide better performance for nodes under ultra-high loads.
