Couchbase

Top Executive: President, CEO Bob Wiederhold

Another entry in the "alternative database" competition, Couchbase develops and supports Couchbase Server, a commercial version of Apache CouchDB, the open-source, document-oriented NoSQL database. Backers pitch CouchDB as superior to traditional relational databases for managing unstructured data and cloud computing.

Couchbase, founded in 2011 and based in Mountain View, Calif., released Couchbase Server 2.5 in February with "rack awareness" for improved availability and reliability, and advanced data encryption added to the system's cross-data center replication.
