v2.1 of Couchbase's NoSQL Document DB Released

Couchbase today announced that Couchbase Server 2.1 is generally available

"With Couchbase Server 2.1, our multi-threaded persistence engine provides customers dramatic disk read and write performance, allowing them to extend the scope and scale of their applications," said Yaseen Rahim, Sr. VP Products at Couchbase, as the NoSQL database leader today announced the general availability of the latest release of its NoSQL document-oriented database.

"We continue to invest in strengthening and optimizing the core architecture of Couchbase Server," Rahim continued, "further differentiating us as the NoSQL solution that delivers reliability at scale for customers and users."

The release of v2.1 further strengthens Couchbase's leadership in scalability, performance and always-on reliability, Rahim said. He stressed the new featured aimed at improving disk utilization and latency, and augmenting what he called "the product's rich set of monitoring and management capabilities."

In an accompanying news release, the Mountain View, CA-based company specified the highlight of the new release:

Highlights of the new release include:
  • A multi-threaded persistence engine that dramatically improves disk utilization, further expanding the use cases and workloads that Couchbase supports. The newly designed and tunable persistence engine increases resource efficiency for users on both commodity hardware and specialized servers.
  • Cross datacenter replication optimizations, resulting in improved latency for data operations across clusters.
  • Improved ongoing administration through:
    • A completely new Health Check tool, resulting in better diagnostics and monitoring;
    • Hostname and IP address management for sys admins, simplifying installation and management of cloud deployments;
    • UI enhancements such as progress indicators for rebalance operations, providing in-depth visibility into the ongoing admin tasks via the Couchbase administration console.
    • Performance and stability fixes to improve user experience across all supported platforms.

In conjunction with the 2.1 release, Couchbase also launched today a new user community portal, designed to provide enhanced technical content and serve as a focal point for knowledge sharing among Couchbase users. The portal offers language-specific sections for developers, a section for Couchbase ops/ admins, and a new interactive Q&A application that will replace the existing Couchbase Forums for community-based support.
