Harness the power of Couchbase to build flexible and scalable applications
Couchbase is an extremely fast, flexible, and highly scalable database that applies MapReduce techniques and patterns to find data. Whether you need to store unstructured data or be able to store and retrieve vast amounts of data quickly, Couchbase Server is your database!
This book gives you enough information to successfully set up a Couchbase cluster and provides details on basic server maintenance. It then goes on to give you a detailed overview of how to program against Couchbase Server using both its key/value features and its document capabilities. It also introduces you to the concept of creating views using Couchbase's implementation of MapReduce. This book will then conclude with a walkthrough of building an actual application from scratch using Couchbase.
