Membase Server – We’re Making Great Progress

It seems like just yesterday we posted the bits for Beta 1 for Membase Server, but in fact it was over a month ago and since then we’ve demo’d Membase at a number of events and have had literally hundreds of conversations with users, customers, partners and anyone else interested in NoSQL solutions. It’s been a whirlwind (in a good way!) of activity and I wanted to personally thank everyone who’s been involved and provided feedback.

Hello from Membase-land!

Greetings again! This will be a quick one...just wanted to let you know that Membase is coming along swimmingly and we've been getting some great feedback on the beta from users around the world.

The plan is to release a Beta 2 drop in the next few days which will add support for having your disk storage be greater than your available RAM. It will also introduce a standalone, client-side proxy (better for performance).

Membase Beta Refreshed…Ubuntu Support and More!

Greetings all! As the Membase beta program manager, I want to let everyone know that we’ve put out an update to the Membase beta. The most notable addition is official support for Ubuntu, version 9.04 and higher. There are also a number of bug fixes, and release notes are available. Download the refresh here. On a related note, we had the first of our weekly beta webinar calls last week. These will be every Thursday until the end of the beta, and all are welcome to join. I’ll be performing demos, talking about bugs and “gotchas” and answering any and all questions. You will automatically be invited to join the call when you download the beta.
