For his part, Bob Wiederhold, Couchbase CEO noted the partnership will more easily allow users to take advantage if NoSQL’s “flexible data model, easy scalability, consistent high performance and always-on data availability.”

Talend supports Couchbase’s NoSQL database to provide high-performance, real-time read/write access to big data. Further, Talend’s unified platform will allow information to flow between a wide variety of data sources, including between NoSQL and other systems, officials said.

The Couchbase Server 2.0 is a document-oriented NoSQL database that delivers fast response times and reliability for key web and mobile apps. Couchbase’s JSON-based data model, lets devs build apps without having to deal with the restrictions associated with a relational database schema, Wiederhold noted.

Talend Open Studio for Big Data, which is built on Talend’s open source integration technology, Talend Open Studio, is a set of open source products for developing, testing, deploying and administrating data management and application integration projects,  Bonan said. Talend delivers a unified platform to make data management and application integration easier for devs and operations IT by offering a unified environment for managing the entire lifecycle across the enterprise, he added. It includes an Eclipse-based graphical environment that combines data integration, data quality, MDM, application integration and big data.

Matt Aslett, research director, data management and analytics, 451 Research, said the use of NoSQL databases has grown rapidly over the last five years, because customers are looking for alternative ways to deliver scalability, performance and data model flexibility.

“As NoSQL adoption becomes more mainstream, integration such as that being offered by Couchbase and Talend will enable customers to manage the complexity and variety of data formats required for modern applications,” Aslett said in the statement.
