At a Couchbase Live New York event today, Couchbase announced the general availability of an upgrade to its document database that delivers on a promise to add SQL support and the ability to scale applications.
Couchbase CEO Bob Wiederhold says the addition of support for an N1QL query language, known as Nickel, along with multi-dimensional scaling and extended cross data center replication capabilities make Couchbase Server 4.0 a truly enterprise-class document database.
Rather than getting caught up in a marketing slogan, Wiederhold says it’s time for providers of document databases to support SQL largely because it will increase adoption of document databases inside the enterprise.
But like most new technologies, it’s only a matter of time before they have to adjust to the realities of enterprise IT, which not only values scale, but also the millions of dollars invested over multiple decades in technologies such as SQL.https://o1.qnsr.com/log/p.gif?;n=203;c=204663295;s=11915;x=7936;f=201904081034270;u=j;z=TIMESTAMP;a=20410779;e=i
