Membase Server 1.6 released
Membase Server community version is now freely available to download. Membase is a key-value store based on memcached, but which extends the well-known distributed RAM database to include data storage on hard drives, storage management and data replication. Membase is a NoSQL database optimised for storing data for interactive web applications and is used by many such applications, including Znyga's popular Farmville game.
Both Enterprise and the free Community versions of Membase Server are available. Subscriptions for the Enterprise version start at $999 (£628.80) per node, per year, and provide customers with access to the Membase network, including hot fixes, software upgrades and support.
Following the release, to underline the growing market significance of Membase Server, NorthScale, the US start-up behind Membase, has changed its name to Membase Inc.
