Announcing Couchbase Server 6.6
Built on the most powerful NoSQL technology, Couchbase Server delivers unparalleled performance at scale, on premises and in any cloud. Couchbase Server 6.6 expands support for hybrid analytical and transactional applications with significant investment in the Analytics Service. These enhancements include the ability to create an independent analytics cluster that consolidates and processes data from multiple operational Couchbase clusters using Remote Links, and the ability to incorporate external data from AWS S3. This allows the Analytics Service to process and present real-time analytic results back to Couchbase-powered applications. We’ve also streamlined the developer experience with helpful tools to facilitate index construction and usage. The Index Advisor has been promoted from preview to production-ready, and the new Flex Index uses Search indexes in SQL/N1QL searches to improve application flexibility and reduce implementation complexity. Backups support AWS S3 and S3-compatible object stores, and there are improvements to Eventing, geospatial search, non-root installation, and more.
