Couchbase Continues Global Expansion in France, China, Japan, India and Israel

New Offices in Paris, Beijing, Tokyo, Bangalore and Tel Aviv Open to Support Growing International Demand for Scalable, Enterprise-Grade NoSQL

MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 03/28/14 -- Couchbase, the fastest-growing provider of enterprise-class NoSQL databases and technologies, today announced the opening of five new offices in Paris, Beijing, Tokyo, Bangalore and Tel Aviv.

Enterprise and developer adoption of NoSQL technology is growing internationally. A recent independent report by technology analyst firm TechNavio forecasts the global NoSQL market will grow at a compound annual growth rate of 53 percent over the period of 2013 to 2018. Couchbase's international expansion will support the roaring demand for high-performing and scalable database solutions for enterprises. The new locations in Beijing, Tokyo and Bangalore mark the company's first offices in Asia, while Paris and Tel Aviv represent continued development in the EMEA market.

"Paris, Beijing, Tokyo, Bangalore and Tel Aviv are among the top, global business cities, home to thousands of enterprises and high-tech firms where we've seen a spike in the demand for NoSQL technology," said Bob Wiederhold, president and CEO of Couchbase. "As these companies grow, they are looking for technology that can support their expanding business, and they're turning to Couchbase because we offer the most scalable, enterprise-grade NoSQL database technology on the market -- one that is capable of taking companies from grassroots NoSQL adoption to strategic implementation of business-critical applications."

Couchbase has a growing international customer base, which now includes companies like Flipkart, Digital Generation, Inc., Playtika, Ybrant Digital and Viber. The offices announcement comes shortly after one of Couchbase's newest Tel Aviv-based customers, Viber, announced its adoption of Couchbase NoSQL to support the scalability demands of its international messaging and VoIP platform, which has hundreds of millions of users.

Couchbase is focused on growing and supporting its developer communities internationally. This year the company is hosting a series of conferences around the world. On April 2, 2014, it will host Couchbase Live [London]. Earlier this year, Couchbase presented Couchbase Live [TLV] in Tel Aviv in February and Couchbase Live [Tokyo] in January.

In 2013, Couchbase experienced dramatic expansion internationally with new partnerships and large-enterprise customers throughout the Middle East, Asia and EMEA markets. The company received a $25 million round of funding in August 2013 to support its international expansion strategy. The opening of new offices and international hiring support Couchbase's plans. In January 2014, Couchbase announced the hiring of Eric Gold, former Aerospike director, as sales director for Asia. Gold will also support Couchbase's growth in Israel and throughout the Middle East.

Couchbase currently has a variety of open positions at the new offices, including for software and technical support engineers. A full list of these opportunities can be found at

Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome,” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken. Without concrete business cases driving its deployment, IoT, like many other technologies before it, will fade into obscurity.
SYS-CON Events announced today that Sandy Carter, IBM General Manager Cloud Ecosystem and Developers, and a Social Business Evangelist, will keynote at the 17th International Cloud Expo®, which will take place on November 3–5, 2015, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.

The IoT market is on track to hit $7.1 trillion in 2020. The reality is that only a handful of companies are ready for this massive demand. There are a lot of barriers, paint points, traps, and hidden roadblocks. How can we deal with these issues and challenges? The paradigm has changed. Old-style ad-hoc trial-and-error ways will certainly lead you to the dead end. What is mandatory is an overarching and adaptive approach to effectively handle the rapid changes and exponential growth.
There will be 20 billion IoT devices connected to the Internet soon. What if we could control these devices with our voice, mind, or gestures? What if we could teach these devices how to talk to each other? What if these devices could learn how to interact with us (and each other) to make our lives better? What if Jarvis was real? How can I gain these super powers? In his session at 17th Cloud Expo, Chris Matthieu, co-founder and CTO of Octoblu, will show you!
Today’s connected world is moving from devices towards things, what this means is that by using increasingly low cost sensors embedded in devices we can create many new use cases. These span across use cases in cities, vehicles, home, offices, factories, retail environments, worksites, health, logistics, and health. These use cases rely on ubiquitous connectivity and generate massive amounts of data at scale. These technologies enable new business opportunities, ways to optimize and automate, along with new ways to engage with users.
The buzz continues for cloud, data analytics and the Internet of Things (IoT) and their collective impact across all industries.

The Internet of Things (IoT) is growing rapidly by extending current technologies, products and networks. By 2020, Cisco estimates there will be 50 billion connected devices. Gartner has forecast revenues of over $300 billion, just to IoT suppliers. Now is the time to figure out how you’ll make money – not just create innovative products. With hundreds of new products and companies jumping into the IoT fray every month, there’s no shortage of innovation. Despite this, McKinsey/VisionMobile data shows "less than 10 percent of IoT developers are making enough to support a reasonably sized team....
Developing software for the Internet of Things (IoT) comes with its own set of challenges. Security, privacy, and unified standards are a few key issues. In addition, each IoT product is comprised of at least three separate application components: the software embedded in the device, the backend big-data service, and the mobile application for the end user's controls. Each component is developed by a different team, using different technologies and practices, and deployed to a different stack/target - this makes the integration of these separate pipelines and the coordination of software upd...
Mobile messaging has been a popular communication channel for more than 20 years. Finnish engineer Matti Makkonen invented the idea for SMS (Short Message Service) in 1984, making his vision a reality on December 3, 1992 by sending the first message ("Happy Christmas") from a PC to a cell phone. Since then, the technology has evolved immensely, from both a technology standpoint, and in our everyday uses for it. Originally used for person-to-person (P2P) communication, i.e., Sally sends a text message to Betty – mobile messaging now offers tremendous value to businesses for customer and empl...
