Couchbase Brings NoETL to NoSQL

Couchbase has announced the latest version of the Couchbase Data Platform with Couchbase Server 6.0. The latest release delivers new Analytics Services that enable organizations to derive real-time insights from operational data with quick set up in five clicks.

With new features--including a capability to circumvent the ETL transformation process, the first commercial implementation of the SQL++ language in N1QL for Analytics; and Autonomous Operator for Analytics, which handles auto provisioning, auto scaling, auto recovery of analytics nodes with Couchase Autonomous Operator--enterprises can get faster access to data and insights from operational data with minimal effort.

SQL++ specifies how to create principled, next-generation query languages that bring together the power of SQL with the flexibility of JSON, helping advance the adoption of document-oriented data and the JSON data format. The development of the SQL++ framework began nearly a decade ago as UC San Diego’s NSF-funded FORWARD project with subsequent contributions and funding from Couchbase and Informatica, and support from UC Irvine and UC Riverside.

As the first commercial implementation of the SQL++ framework, Couchbase N1QL for Analytics serves as the query language for the new Analytics Service.

The Couchbase Data Platform supports hybrid transactional and analytical processing (HTAP) database requirements that allow business users to run ad hoc analytical queries leveraging a massively parallel processing (MPP) architecture, without impacting operational application performance. Couchbase Server 6.0 provides immediate availability of operational data for analytical processing by enabling enterprises to run analytical queries on JSON data without the delay or complexity of schema re-design and data transformation that occur with relational databases.

With the Analytics Service’s “NoETL for NoSQL” capability, users can process JSON data in its natural state without the need for any transformation or schema design. In addition, fast ingestion makes data available for analytical processing in milliseconds; ad hoc querying allows business users to explore data and perform complex joins and aggregations; and workload isolation enables ad hoc queries to be run without impacting application performance.

Couchbase Server 6.0 will be generally available in the 4th calendar quarter of 2018.
