NoSQL Now! is a conference that attracts NoSQL users and vendors. Couchbase, Altoros’s partner and customer, couldn’t avoid this event and joined the community. People in the IT field still feel embarrassed by a great variety of NoSQL products in the market. Most companies tend to exaggerate the merits and disregard the disadvantages of their solutions. Bob Wiederhold, President and Chief Executive Officer, Couchbase, agreed to shed some light on the situation and gave an interview to Zen Kishimoto, Green IT advocate at Alta Terra. Bob honestly told about strong and weak sides of Couchbase and commented on the trends in the mainstream.

Couchbase is the result of a successful merge of Membase and Couchone.
