The rapid growth was fueled by the success of Couchbase’s 2.0 release and associated major competitive wins at many of the world’s largest enterprises.
The scalability, performance and flexibility requirements of modern web and mobile applications are driving the massive growth of NoSQL in major enterprises, where Couchbase is a leader.

Many of these customers will be presenting at the Couchbase [SF] user conference on September 13th.
The phenomenal success of the 2.0 release, delivered just nine months ago in December 2012, is attributed to the following key capabilities:
- Couchbase’s continued leadership as the most easily scalable NoSQL database
- Couchbase’s continued leadership as a consistently high performance NoSQL database
- The addition of cross data center replication, which allows active-active mirroring of data across data centers, a critical capability for large enterprises that run global businesses
