At the Forge - CouchDB

Getting started with CouchDB, an increasingly popular non-relational database.
Conclusion

CouchDB is an increasingly popular non-relational database, offering a great deal of flexibility in storage and retrieval. This month, I explained how to create databases in CouchDB and do basic storage and retrieval using both the Web-based Futon interface and curl. Next month, I will demonstrate writing JavaScript functions that process and display the data, demonstrating the true power of CouchDB.

In this one hour webinar, learn how to enhance your existing backup strategies for better disaster recovery preparedness using Storix System Backup Administrator (SBAdmin), a highly flexible bare-metal recovery solution for UNIX and Linux systems.
