CouchOne and Membase have announced their merger, creating CouchBase.
CouchOne was founded by the creator of CouchDB, Damien Katz, to provide commercial support for CouchDB, an open source document-based database.
Membase was founded by developers of Memcached, a general purpose distributed memory caching system used on sites such as YouTube, Reddit, Zynga, Facebook and Twitter. Membase’s flagship product is Membase, a key-value database with many of Memcached’s features.
The merged company will be led by Bob Weiderhold, formerly CEO of Membase, while Damien Katz, formerly CEO of CouchOne, becomes CTO.
