Why Couchbase? Why companies are migrating to NoSQL

Wednesday, June 16 | 3:00 PM CT


Businesses are quickly moving to NoSQL databases to power their modern applications. However, a technology migration involves risk, especially if you have to change your data model. What if you could host a relatively unmodified RDBMS schema on your NoSQL database, then optimize it over time?

Why should you use Couchbase instead of just a plain old RDBMS? When does Couchbase really shine and make the most sense to allow you to build apps rapidly? Let’s talk about the patterns of next-generation distributed applications and cover the cases of when Couchbase is the best database in the toolbox.

Speaker: Steve Yen, Founder, Couchbase
Steve Yen is a Silicon Valley-based entrepreneur and technologist with more than 20 years of experience at industry-defining companies such as at Sun Microsystems, Netscape Communications, Lotus Software, and IBM. Steve most recently co-founded Couchbase, Inc., where he helped form the design, architecture, and delivery of technologies and develop the engineering teams at this leader in scale-out, high-performance, high agility, multicloud to edge database systems. Before Couchbase, Steve was the co-founder of several software technology startups including Escalate Software and Kiva Software.

Join us after the presentation as we pop a bottle of the vintage chosen by sommelier, Rachel DeAmbrose, who will provide a brief tasting on the wine you’ll receive as a “thank you” for attending the event.

Rachel DeAmbrose attended the International Culinary Center in New York City for Intensive Sommelier Training and achieved Certified Sommelier through the Court of Master Sommeliers. She continued training as an intern for a single vintage grower in Champagne, France before returning to the US to accept a position as a wine steward at world renowned Bern's Steak House.

Rachel was quickly promoted to Assistant Sommelier and soon after Sommelier, the first woman and youngest sommelier in Bern’s history, making her way through the vast James Beard award winning wine cellar of rare and extremely sought after vintages. She now hosts private wine events globally at venues hand-picked for their wine cellars.
