MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif. – September 13, 2013  – Couchbase, a leader in NoSQL database technology and the company behind the Couchbase open source project, today announced the availability of Couchbase Server 2.2, the latest release of its NoSQL document-oriented database.

  • Administration, Monitoring and Manageability
    • Updated cbHealthChecker utility monitors the health of a cluster and provides advanced diagnostic capabilities, including information about capacity planning.
    • New administrative utility cbrecovery provides granular cluster recovery capabilities using data from remote Couchbase clusters.
  • Security
    • Read-only administration through the Couchbase Admin Console and the REST API designed for enterprise operations teams.
    • Delegated non-root and non-sudo administration, particularly important for development and testing within the enterprise.
