Couchbase Accelerates Growth in First Quarter of 2014 With Global Expansion, Major Product Release and Competitive Wins

Mountain View, CA  May 13, 2014 – (– Couchbase, Inc., provider of the most complete NoSQL database, today announced surging momentum in Q1 2014. Among its achievements, the company:

“Businesses in every industry are moving out of the developer-led, grassroots first phase of NoSQL and into the second phase of NoSQL market adoption: NoSQL support of mission and business critical applications”

  • Released Couchbase Server Enterprise Edition 2.5, adding rack and availability zone awareness as well as data encryption to meet the needs of large enterprises
  • Beat competitors in strategic evaluations by industry leaders in every region of the world for being the most reliable, most scalable and best performing NoSQL database
  • Added well-known technology executives to its leadership team, grew employee base by 30 percent and more than doubled the office space for its Mountain View headquarters
  • Opened new offices in Bangalore, India; Beijing, China; Paris, France; San Francisco; Tel-Aviv, Israel; and Tokyo, Japan.

Big Data and NoSQL Support for Mission Critical Deployments

The emergence of big data is fueling the rapid growth of NoSQL, the database technology of the future. Businesses that have started implementing NoSQL big data initiatives are more scalable, more nimble and, subsequently, growing their competitive advantage. Beats Music and Neiman Marcus join a long list of Couchbase customers like Adobe, Concur, Viber that are building competitive edge with Couchbase’s NoSQL solutions.

“Businesses in every industry are moving out of the developer-led, grassroots first phase of NoSQL and into the second phase of NoSQL market adoption: NoSQL support of mission and business critical applications,” said Couchbase CEO, Bob Wiederhold. “In addition, businesses have found that the databases supporting phase one NoSQL projects are not architected to meet the performance or scale requirements of mission critical applications. MongoDB’s most recent release, in their words, ‘Mongo’s biggest release ever,’ still does not address fundamental limitations on performance and scale. When businesses need a complete NoSQL solution architected for reliability, scalability and performance, they come to Couchbase.”
