Presentation/Demo : Couchbase in Containers with Bare-Metal Performance and Triton’s Remarkable Elastic Provisioning

Virtualization is a key aspect of modern computing architectures. Often the choice to go to hardware-level virtualization induces a damage to the performance characteristics of our virtual machines. As I have mentioned before – SmartOS zones and Docker offer a better way to go.  In this presentation, Bryan Cantrill of Joyent provides a rapid-fire and humorous presentation highlighting the history of virtualization and the advantages of running Couchbase containers leveraging Triton, SmartOS and Docker. Also demonstrated is a remarkable display of Triton elasticity – easily creating a number of Couchbase servers on-the-fly all within lightweight virtualized containers running across a datacenter.  What is  offered is a sophisticated,highly scalable, highly performant, elastic solution for a datacenter.

It gets better.  If you are interested in deploying the Couchbase containers yourself it is fairly straightforward and you can get the “recipe” from the following blog :

Couchbase Use-Case : LinkedIn

Following on the previous post, today’s post discusses an interesting Couchbase use-case.

Often the questions about a particular technology or product are –

  • who is using it successfully ?
  • how is it being used ?
  • how scalable is it ?
  • does it have good performance (usually within a context) ?

In Couchbase’s case they have a large volume examples of customer use-cases.  One example is LinkedIn.  In the first presentation there is a discussion of how LinkedIn uses Couchbase :

Within this context, an obvious second presentation is a presentation of Couchbase server scalability and performance at LinkedIn:
