I am thrilled to be writing this blog post announcing to the world that Membase and CouchOne have merged to become Couchbase!

Our website is full of information about the merger, and I invite you to read more about why we brought our two companies together, redefining the NoSQL landscape in the process. Check out the blog posts from Membase's James Phillips (here) and CouchOne's Damien Katz (here) for their perspectives. I think you'll enjoy the merger video they did.

But now…it's time to celebrate!

Tonight (February 8) you will find us at the Tied House in downtown Mountain View. It's open bar and appetizers for our employees, the CouchDB and Membase/Memcached communities and friends of the companies.
