Couchbase has released a developer preview of the Couchbase Server 2.0 document-oriented NoSQL database. Combining the elastic data management capabilities of its own Membase Server technology with the distributed indexing and querying capabilities of Apache CouchDB, Couchbase continues to mark its territory as a database specialist. Claiming to have produced the most widely deployed open source document database, Couchbase describes its offering as “bullet-proof” NoSQL database technology.

We found this interesting news on Dr. Dobbs’ blog in his post, “Couchbase Issues Developer Preview.” This new release claims to store data without risk of corruption, with indexing and distributed query capabilities.

Bright promises, but be careful and choose a professional to help you with your document management system so you won’t find yourself struggling to make it work. Access Innovations is one of a very small number of companies able to help its clients generate ANSI/ISO/W3C-compliant taxonomies to make their information findable.
