N1QL is pronounced "nickel". It is our next generation query language. N1QL presents easy and familiar abstractions to quickly develop scalable applications that work with next generation database systems. It allows for filter expressions, aggregate expressions and many other features to build a rich application.

Create a Couchbase cluster in less than a minute with Ansible

[This blog was syndicated from http://blog.grallandco.com]

 

Introduction

 
When I was looking for a more effective way to create my cluster I asked some sysadmins which tools I should use to do it. The answer I got during OSDC was not Puppet, nor Chef, but was Ansible.
 
This article shows you how you can easily configure and create a Couchbase cluster deployed and many linux boxes...and the only thing you need on these boxes is an SSH Server!
 
Thanks to Jan-Piet Mens that was one of the person that convinced me to use Ansible and answered questions I had about Ansible.
 
You can watch the demonstration below, and/or look at all the details in the next paragraph.

How Couchbase helped OMGPOP break all the records with Draw Something

Every now and then you get the opportunity to prove yourself on a big stage. Four weeks ago we got the chance. Couchbase user, OMGPOP, had launched Draw Something – a Pictionary-like game that was going viral. Capitalizing on what would end up being an unprecedented growth opportunity, they absolutely had to scale their database. There were two non-negotiables: performance had to be sustained and the game could never be taken off line, even as the number of users and games rapidly accelerated.

Reinforcing Couchbase’s Commitment to Open Source and CouchDB

There has been a lot of reaction to Damien Katz’s “The Future of CouchDB” blog post including some questions raised about Couchbase’s direction.
