The Couchbase Server is a state-of-the-art, distributed database solution that's built for the cloud. It integrates the reliability and familiar structure of traditional SQL databases and ACID transactions with the flexibility of JSON data manipulation and scalable capacity typical to NoSQL databases. Couchbase offers this advanced solution commercially as a service in various cloud environments, while also supporting hybrid and private cloud deployments.
The software features SQL++, an expressive and potent declarative language that empowers developers to query, transform, and manipulate JSON data. This provides developers with a comprehensive toolset for handling JSON data effectively.
Another key feature is its support for ACID transactions. This allows developers to create scalable and highly available applications that need multi-document atomicity and durability guarantees. With Couchbase, you can delegate the intricate aspects of transactional processing to the software itself, simplifying your workload.
