Couchbase Second Quarter Growth Fueled by Release of World’s First NoSQL Mobile Database and Competitive Wins Over MongoDB and Oracle

Couchbase, Inc., provider of the most complete NoSQL database, today announced continued momentum in Q2 2014, driven by new product releases and major customer wins, as large enterprises choose Couchbase Server, over Oracle and MongoDB, for mission critical applications. Q2 customer deals included wins at some of the world’s most recognized brands, including AT&T, Blizzard Entertainment, BSKYB, Cisco, Electronic Arts, Factset, FICO, Leclerc, Nikkei, Ntelos, Orange, PMU, Symantec, Tesco, Tixr, Unique Vacations, Verizon, vente-privee.com and WebMD.

“The market is clearly moving to broader adoption of NoSQL for big data management and mission critical applications,” said Bob Wiederhold, CEO Couchbase. “We are seeing customers conduct deep, strategic vendor evaluations that compare and validate database performance, functionality and reliability. Our continued growth this quarter, and competitive wins over Oracle and MongoDB at some of the largest companies around the world, show that Couchbase Server continues to outperform the competition.”

In addition to more than 70 customer wins across the United States, Europe and Asia, Couchbase announced the release of the world’s first NoSQL mobile database, received $60 Million in Series E financing, appointed Sujan Jain as Chief Financial Officer, and outperformed MongoDB and Datastax in the 2014 NoSQL High Performance benchmark.

Couchbase Leapfrogs Competition with Delivery of World’s First Mobile NoSQL Database and Sync Solution

Businesses adopting a mobile first strategy want a better way to build mobile applications. Couchbase Mobile enables mobile application developers to quickly and easily build mobile applications that are always on, with or without a network connection, and that are able to easily sync data of all types to the cloud – or with other devices. The release of Couchbase Mobile is further increasing demand for Couchbase technology.

Couchbase Blows Past Competition in NoSQL Performance Benchmark

Couchbase Server continues to outpace the competition in meeting enterprise requirements for speed, performance and reliability. In the second quarter, Thumbtack Technologies released a 2014 High Performance Benchmark that documented Couchbase Server’s superior performance over MongoDB and Datastax. The results from the 2014 NoSQL benchmark are consistent with internal benchmarks run by many of Couchbase customers.

New Funding Positions Couchbase to Expand Leadership

With an exploding big data market that is increasing demand for NoSQL database technology, Couchbase anticipates nonstop growth in 2014 and beyond. With the additional $60 million investment received in Q2, Couchbase will continue delivering the scale, reliability, and performance needed to support enterprise mission critical applications, and will continue building market leadership by investing in product development, innovation, and company expansion, including increasing regional technical support operations and scaling its marketing and sales teams.
