Mountain View, Calif. – August 28, 2013 – Couchbase, a leader in NoSQL database technology and the company behind the Couchbase open source project, announced today that software subscription sales grew by more than 400% year-over-year in the first half of 2013.  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. The use of NoSQL is becoming standard for certain critical use cases such as: globally distributed user profile management, session store management, high-performance caching, content and metadata store management and data aggregation. Billions of users access Couchbase everyday through eCommerce sites, social sites and ad network platforms. These include:


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
  • The addition of document database features like JSON support and indexing and querying that speed development of applications
