According to Bob Wiederhold, CEO of Couchbase, NoSQL databases emerged as a response to the problems caused by fixed schema structure of SQL solutions and their proprietary nature. In this interview, he explains the difference between SQL and NoSQL products and mentions the tasks they help to solve. While SQL solutions increase their performance mostly through extending hardware capabilities (e.g., through buying bigger CPU, expanding memory and disk space), they still face some limits that result in database sharding. Watch this video to learn about the consequences of splitting a SQL database into several parts and discover how NoSQL databases address such issues.

Also, you’ll discover the variety of NoSQL types and understand why all of them exist at the same time. You will see the main principles of NoSQL databases and reveal their best use cases. Listen to Bob Wiederhold’s opinion about what to expect in the field of distributed databases in the near future and what’s meant by a new “more prominent model.”

Couchbase is a privately held company with the headquarters in Mountain View, California, and the development offices around the world. They created a Couchbase Server, an open-source NoSQL database for serving data-intensive, rapidly growing, interactive Web apps in the virtualized or cloud environment. Altoros assisted Couchbase in building some parts of this awesome product that is now deployed by AOL, Deutsche Post, NTT Docomo,, Starbucks, Zynga, and other world leaders.
