CouchOne, Membase Merge, Form NoSQL Powerhouse 46

Julie188 writes "CouchOne and Membase, two of the most popular noSQL projects, have merged in an attempt to become an open source database powerhouse. Even the company's new name is merged: Couchbase. The founders of the new Couchbase say they will offer the ability to scale from the largest data center and distributed cloud environments all the way down to smartphones and other mobile devices. As is the standard disclaimer during merger announcements, the leaders also promise to continue their support for their open source, community versions of their programs."

    instead of two projects I've never heard of, I'll only have to ignore one!

      The initial post is misleading. The "two of the most popular noSQL projects" are in fact not CouchOne and Membase as it suggests. The fame should rather be attributed to CouchDB and Memcached, of which it would be rather hard indeed not to have heard. CouchDB has been developed by Damien Katz, the founder and CEO of CouchOne (created in order to commercialize the technology). Membase in turn is a NoSQL solution based upon Memcached (protocol-compatible).

        Memcached is a distributed in-memory cache implementation, it has nothing to do with noSql. See: http://code.google.com/p/memcached/ [google.com]
        • Memcached is a distributed in-memory cache implementation, it has nothing to do with noSql. See: http://code.google.com/p/memcached/ [google.com]

          Incorrect

          Memcached is a key/value store, which doesn't use SQL or RDBMS concepts and is therefore by definition a noSql project.

          The fact that is an in-memorty cache implementaion is irrelevant.

            Did you read the project description on the link I provided? Here it is:

            memcached is a high-performance, distributed memory object caching system

            I didn't know caching system has been redefined to be nosql... Now java.util.HashMap is a nosql implementation!

            • by mini me (132455)

              Membase is the NoSQL database. The same people are responsible for Memcache, and thus it was part of this merger.

    whenever I hear nosql, I instantly think of this: mongodb is web scale: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b2F-DItXtZs [youtube.com]
    • LMAO, thank you for that :)
    • Weird, whenever I hear nosql I instantly think about how much fun it will be to castrate my first bull, down on the farm.

    • Whenever I watch one of these xtranormal videos, the voices just don't match [tvtropes.org]. The characters look like the NPCs from Nintendo's Animal Crossing video games. So I come in expecting to hear higher-pitched Looney Tunes style voices, which match how I imagine the Animal Crossing NPCs speaking based on what the in-game "animalese" sounds like, and these voices sounding like grown men just strike me as jarring.
    • If /dev/null is fast and web scale, I will use it!
  • And I got to enjoy this piece of wonderful writing:

    "No matter how you slice it, I think this is merger is full of awesomesauce."

    I'll never do that again..

A failure will not appear until a unit has passed final inspection.

Working...
