Couchbase is part of the $35 billion database market and has quickly built a reputation among the Fortune 500 as the performance and scalability leader among NoSQL vendors. The database market is highly competitive, with legacy vendors like Oracle being challenged by NoSQL vendors such as Couchbase, as well as competitors like DataStax and MongoDB. According to a report from Allied Market Research, the NoSQL database market is expected to reach $4.2 billion by 2020, a CAGR of 35 percent from 2014-2020.
Developers around the world build enterprise web, mobile, and IoT applications on the Couchbase data management platform to support massive data volumes in real time. The Couchbase platform includes Couchbase Server, Couchbase Lite - the first mobile NoSQL database, and Couchbase Sync Gateway.
Couchbase makes it easy for developers to build enterprise applications on NoSQL using N1QL, a declarative query language that extends SQL for JSON.
