Build fast, scale big with MongoDB Atlas, a hosted service for the leading NoSQL database. Try it now! Brought to you in partnership with MongoDB.

Through the merger of Couchio/CouchOne and Membase, along with the product name changing, Couchbase has stayed competitive in a ferocious commercial NoSQL market that includes DataStax (Cassandra) and MongoDB, Inc.  

This week, Couchbase netted $25 million from a range of investors to keep driving its growth.  In the early days of NoSQL's emergence, CouchDB (which Couchbase is based on) was one of the most popular NoSQL stores, along with Cassandra.  Now MongoDB has taken the top spot according to DB-engines.com rankings (and my own observations of development communities).  But the situation can change quickly in IT, so don't count anyone out.

Now it's easier than ever to get started with MongoDB, the database that allows startups and enterprises alike to rapidly build planet-scale apps. Introducing MongoDB Atlas, the official hosted service for the database on AWS. Try it now! Brought to you in partnership with MongoDB.
