OpenInsight v10.0 will introduce a Cloud Based Filing System (CBBFS) which will allow the OpenInsight toolset to operate on data stored in Couchbase which is one of several cloud databases. A cloud database is an internet accessible NoSQL database key/value store. A key/value store is one which returns an entire document in response to a request for a key. The most popular vendors structure their documents as marked up text. OpenInsight’s native data storage is a key/value store which stores data as marked up text. OpenInsight is a natural fit as a toolset for working with these databases. The CBBFS connector will translate the OpenInsight markup scheme to the markup scheme of Couchbase which is JSON.
