Couchbase Server 3.0 Beta Begins

Couchbase, Inc., provider of the most complete NoSQL database, today announced the beta release of Couchbase Server 3.0. With this beta release, Couchbase seeks to get valuable user input on new features that strengthen its core architecture and greatly improve the developer and administrator experiences. In addition to making the beta version available, Couchbase has launched a bug bash with winners to be announced at its annual user conference in San Francisco, Couchbase Connect.

“In this release, we are extending our core architecture in ways that further Couchbase Server’s lead as the most scalable and best performing NoSQL database,” said Ravi Mayuram, Senior Vice President of Products and Engineering, Couchbase. “In addition to foundational changes, like the advanced stream based protocol and tunable memory, that improve performance and enable Couchbase to support many new use cases, we have dramatically improved the developer experience making it easier to build and extend applications built on Couchbase.”

Couchbase Server 3.0 solidifies Couchbase’s lead as the best performing, most scalable NoSQL database, and makes it faster and easier for developers to build apps on next generation technologies. The beta, available for download now, is a great opportunity for developers and administrators to start familiarizing themselves with the many new capabilities Couchbase Server 3.0 will deliver.

Advanced Architecture Delivers Unbeatable Performance, Scale and Reliability

Couchbase Server 3.0 foundational advancements introduce a next generation, stream-based protocol, Database Change Protocol (DCP), that dramatically reduces latency, enables blazing fast speed by removing bottlenecks, and provides better utilization of increased memory and network capabilities. With the new DCP, Couchbase view performance is dramatically improved: changes made to documents are immediately streamed and rapidly indexed, making it possible to query data in near real time speeds. Additionally, DCP reduces latency for Couchbase Cross Data Center Replication (XDCR) by replicating data memory-to-memory from the source cluster to the destination cluster.

The new release also introduces the NoSQL industry’s first and only on-the-fly tunable memory, enabling businesses to manage big data however they want: tune for all data to stay in memory for super fast response times, or for an appropriate subset to reside in memory. This new capability gives Couchbase Server the power to support very large data sets efficiently and cost effectively, and makes it possible for Couchbase Server to support a variety of new use cases as the database can be configured on the fly to support whatever the application needs.

New Features Improve Experience for the Developer, Administrator and the Enterprise

Couchbase Server 3.0 also includes numerous enhancements and new features that deliver industrial-strength, enterprise grade administration. Some highlights of the new release include:

Simplified Administration:

  • Couchbase Server 3.0 includes new options for incremental backup and restore. This new ability, which enables incremental backups of only data changed since the last backup, requires less storage and completes faster.
  • Administrators will also benefit from new bucket priorities. Buckets are isolated, virtual containers that logically group records within a cluster; they are the functional equivalent to a database. This new prioritization capability gives administrators better control of bucket resource allocation with pause and resume controls that enable XDCR replication to be stopped and started again during maintenance.

Enterprise Class Security:

  • Couchbase Server 3.0 raises the bar on NoSQL security with encrypted data access. SSL encrypts data in-flight between client and server, providing secure on-the-wire data access for applications and administrators.
  • Making access safe and secure, Couchbase Server 3.0 introduces encrypted HTTPS access to the Couchbase administrator console and the REST API.

Ease of Development

  • With Couchbase Server 3.0, developers can use Couchbase 2.0 SDKs to access fully integrated, native JSON, making it easier and faster to build applications in the most widely used languages.
  • New and powerful asynchronous and reactive interfaces in Java and .NET give developers the ability to build richer applications, with better IO performance.
  • New integrations with Spring, gEvent, twisted and more, make it easier for developers to build applications on popular, open source frameworks.

A full listing of new features can be found here.

Couchbase Server 3.0 Bug Bash

As part of the beta release, Couchbase is also announcing the Couchbase Server 3.0 Bug Bash, a contest inviting developers to put Couchbase Server 3.0 to the test. Couchbase is giving rewards, swag and public recognition to developers who help make Couchbase Server 3.0 a secure, high quality, and bug free release. Winners will be recognized in three categories: most severe bug, most unique bug and most number of bugs. Developers interested in joining the bug bash should visit www.couchbase.com/bugbash.
