Today Simba Technologies and Couchbase have announced a joint partnership to deliver ODBC and JDBC connectivity for Couchbase Server. Under terms of the agreement, Couchbase selected Simba Technologies to build ODBC 3.8 and JDBC 4.0 connectivity drivers for the Couchbase NoSQL database.
"Simba's ODBC and JDBC drivers will bring a new level of fast, seamless connectivity to Couchbase Server," said Rod Hamlin, Couchbase Vice President of Global Business Development. "This integration will make it easier for data analysts -- whether they're using Tableau, Excel, QlikView, SAP Lumira, or any other BI app -- to quickly access data in Couchbase Server."

The Couchbase-Simba Technologies partnership highlights the growing importance of connectivity in the NoSQL world: Couchbase customers will be able to access their NoSQL data -- and more importantly, analyze, report, and act upon it -- from their business intelligence tools of choice. Simba's ODBC and JDBC connectors allow users to make quick analytic insights and to leverage back-end data-source high-performance calculation capabilities. The Simba SQL-92 engine supports aggregations, joins, scalar functions, sub-queries, and limits DDL. Additionally, it will support N1QL, Couchbase's SQL-like query language currently in developer preview.
