Membase and CouchOne merged earlier this year to form Couchbase, the newly formed company promised to release a merged version of the NoSQL database servers the company sponsors: Apache CouchDB and Membase.When
The first version of Couchbase Server, released earlier this year, didn't incorporate features from Membase - instead it rolled up various CouchDB components into a single install. Version 2.0 what we've been waiting for since the merger.
Couchbase Server 2.0 also incorporates Memcached, which provides in-memory caching of data for increased speed of both reads and writes. Couchbase Server 2.0 is able to sync with other CouchDB-based servers, including Mobile Couchbase, which runs on Android and iOS.
The combined features include:
- Geospatial indexing
- JSON data structures
- Memory caching
- Zero downtime topology changes
- Data distribution across clusters
