Couchbase Server

Couchbase Server is an open source, shared nothing, distributed, NoSQL multi-model, document-oriented database that stores JSON documents.

If we distinguish between “transactions” and “operations” by saying that the former require ACID guarantees, while the latter do not, then Couchbase Server with N1QL for Analytics is primarily targeted at hybrid environments that require the real-time processing of both operational data and analytics. As primarily a document database, Couchbase offers all the advantages you would expect of a NoSQL database with schema-on-read, horizontal scalability and workload isolation along with the sort of high availability and resilience you would expect of an enterprise-grade product.
