Couchbase Server is a document-oriented NoSQL database. Most NoSQL systems force you to sacrifice the rich querying capabilities of SQL in trade for the other benefits they offer. At Couchbase, we’ve developed the N1QL query language to solve this problem.
N1QL is a superset of SQL. It’s currently supported by Couchbase Server, and soon, through the upcoming v. 2.0 release, Couchbase Lite.
In this talk at the Silicon Valley Couchbase Meetup, Senior Director, Couchbase R & D Keshav Murthy walks you through why you’d use NoSQL, NoSQL data modeling, and querying NoSQL using SQL with the N1QL language. Check out the video.
Couchbase is open source and free to try out. Download the latest versions, including previews of upcoming features, here.
