Couchbase, Docomo and Zynga: Strategic Relationships Make a Difference to the Community

Today we announced another strategic customer relationship.  This one is with NTT Docomo, the largest mobile service provider in Japan. It’s always nice to announce big customer relationships, but sometimes it’s not obvious to the wider Couchbase community what its importance is to them.  I think these relationships are a crucial ingredient to building great products, and in turn the entire community benefits.

The biggest difference I identified, is that mobile devices frequently have unreliable connections. Even when the connection is available, it often has high latencies. Users are familiar with long waits when browsing the web or sending tweets, but that doesn't mean they like it.

Welcome to NoSQL, Oracle – we’ve been expecting you.

Oracle’s entry into the NoSQL market, announced yesterday at Oracle OpenWorld, isn’t at all surprising to anyone who believes, like we do, that NoSQL is destined to be a disruptive force in the database market and eventually make up a significant percentage of its sales.

Couchbase NoSQL Meetup in Tel Aviv

It’s been a while since I got to feel the “techy” Israel. Since I moved to Silicon Valley a decade ago, I haven’t had much chance to meet and talk with the people behind Israel’s great entrepreneurial success. This visit was different.
