Couchbase

Couchbase adds SQL to NoSQL with Couchbase Server 4.0

There is no doubt that Couchbase Server version 4.0 is a substantial release, containing enough enhancements that they could justifiably be spread across multiple point releases.

The scale of the update is symptomatic of Couchbase’s ambitions as it looks to increase its competition with the database giants for the next generation of enterprise applications.

Capabilities such as a SQL-like query language and secondary indexing will go some way toward improving Couchbase’s chances of becoming a genuine option for later-stage adopters, as well as the early adopters that have driven the growth of NoSQL to date.
