After this talk you will see and clearly understand where Couchbase fits in the "CAP Theorem" and see which tradeoffs have been made by the Couchbase development team.
Simplify, then Scale the Data Model: Using a Document-Oriented Database
"Simplify, then add lightness." was Colin Chapman's advice to those seeking performance in auto racing. When deciding where to store the data behind interactive web apps, we developers can now implement such a philosophy through Document-Oriented databases like Couchbase Server. In Couchbase's document-oriented model, the primitive operations operate on data aggregates just like the Java object model behind your application.
Storage and retrieval are done with lightweight operations such as 'get' and 'set'. Indexing and querying is done with Couchbase's views to incrementally map-reduce extract document subelements on demand. Performance in development time, sub-millisecond data access and massive scale come together in this formula.
