Couchbase momentum in the first quarter of 2015
Growing enterprise adoption
Enterprise adoption of NoSQL for mission critical applications continues to grow and an increasing number of companies are choosing Couchbase as their NoSQL data management solution. In the first quarter of 2015, Couchbase added new customers and grew existing deployments at global brand leaders around the world, including Amadeus, Comcast, Cochlear, DirecTV, Experian, Intuit, La Banque Postal, SafetyCulture and more.
In March, Couchbase hosted Couchbase Live Europe 2015, its annual European user conference. The conference drew nearly three times the number of attendees as previous years and included presentations from European customers like Amadeus, Ryanair and the Turkish Ministry of Health. Rapidly growing interest in Couchbase prompted the company to move its U.S.-based annual user conference from a hotel in downtown San Francisco to Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara, Calif. The user conference will be held June 2 – 4, 2015. It will include more than 80 technical sessions, presentations by Cisco, eBay, General Electric, Inuit, PayPal and other industry leaders, and is expected to draw more than 1500 attendees. Registration is now open.
Rapidly expanding ecosystem
Couchbase continued to grow its ecosystem, signing more than a dozen new partners in the first quarter. Spanning technology and distribution, new partners included Pure Storage, Microsoft Azure, Unity, Google and BigStep. Couchbase and newly signed partner Hortonworks together delivered new integration for faster and easier deployments of big data architectures that leverage Hadoop and NoSQL.
New benchmark demonstrates leadership in scale and performance
Mission critical applications require massive scale and high performance. Enterprises looking to adopt NoSQL benefit from benchmark evaluations that compare use cases and performance for different solutions. In March, Avalon Consulting released a new NoSQL benchmark that showed Couchbase outperforming MongoDB and Cassandra in some of the most common deployment scenarios.
Couchbase delivers the world’s highest performing NoSQL distributed database platform. Developers around the world use the Couchbase platform to build enterprise web, mobile, and IoT applications that support massive data volumes in real time.
