Couchbase Announces Support for Docker Containers
June 20, 2016
Production certified support enables customers to maximize hardware efficiency and simplify application lifecycle.
Couchbase, the database for the Digital Economy, today announced at DockerCon production certified support for Docker, the open source containers platform, will ship with the upcoming new Couchbase Server release. Docker enables developers to package an application with all of its dependencies into a standardized unit for software development. Docker containers guarantee that an application will always run the same, regardless of the environment it is running in.
“Couchbase has rigorously tested Couchbase Server on Docker, which will give customers assurance of performance and reliability running in Docker containers,” said Cihan Biyikoglu, senior director of product at Couchbase. “With production certified support, customers will enjoy high performance deployments with full infrastructure efficiency by running Couchbase Server on Docker. This enables customers to launch Couchbase Server clusters on-demand within seconds for production, development or testing.”
Containers are gaining rapid adoption as enterprises seek elastic infrastructure that enables them to scale more easily and operate with greater agility. As a result, there is an increasing demand from enterprises eager for powerful database software that is supported, tested and runs reliably on container platforms.
Running Couchbase Server on Docker containers simplifies the application lifecycle. With this production certified support, developers will be able to compose applications with microservices using lightweight containers, allowing developers to build, test and run applications with far simpler configuration management throughout the application lifecycle.
Couchbase is attending DockerCon in Seattle and will be showcasing Couchbase Server capabilities in booth S16.
Unlike other NoSQL databases, Couchbase provides an enterprise-class, multicloud to edge database that offers the robust capabilities required for business-critical applications on a highly scalable and available platform.

Couchbase is built on open standards, combining the best of NoSQL with the power and familiarity of SQL, to simplify the transition from mainframe and relational databases.
