Why Couchbase and Why Now - Thoughts From an Old Database Guy

Presented by

Michael Carey, Consulting Chief Architect, Couchbase

About this talk

Once upon a time databases were physical beasts. They were maintained by programmers who had to change their application programs' data access logic whenever business requirements led to database changes. In 1970 Tedd Codd revolutionized the database world by introducing the relational model. The declarative nature of relational databases led to orders-of-magnitude improvements in productivity, and to the multibillion-dollar database industry we know today. In this session, you’ll hear from an old database guy whose database experience predates the commercial success of relational databases. He’ll examine the Couchbase Server platform from this historical perspective. You’ll learn how and why Couchbase Server 7.0 is particularly well suited to serve as a post-relational answer to data management, providing an unparalleled combination of declarative and scale-independent query capabilities as well as logical/physical data independence.
