Top Executive: CEO Matt Cain
Couchbase and other vendors in the crowded NoSQL database arena position their products as alternatives to the relational databases that dominate most data centers today. Their next-generation technologies can better handle huge volumes of data and different data types.
Couchbase, founded in 2011 and based in Mountain View, Calif., named former Veritas president Matt Cain to be its new CEO in April, succeeding Bob Wiederhold who became executive chairman.
Couchbase's products include the Couchbase Server and Couchbase Mobile. In March the company reported that it had seen rapid growth in enterprise deployments for Internet of things applications.
