Couchbase was formed in 2011 from the merger of Membase and CouchOne. It is VC backed and has its headquarters in California with additional offices in France, India and the United Kingdom. The company has a substantial partner programme.
Couchbase Server is a packaged version of its open source technology and is available in both community and commercial versions. Extending the NoSQL database to the edge, Couchbase Mobile runs on both mobile devices and other small footprint devices. For Couchbase Server both on-premises and cloud-based deployments are supported. The company targets its database across industry boundaries and, prior to the most recent release, the focus has been on operational use cases. It has some notable clients, including Cisco, eBay, Sky, Telefonica, Ryanair, Tesco and many others.
