VMblog: As a DockerCon 2017 sponsor, how can people find you this year?
Couchbase: We are at booth S37 and will be sending 3-4 people. Arun Gupta, VP of Developer Relations, is also speaking at the event.
VMblog: Is there anything interesting or unique about this year's booth setup? Do you have a theme?
Couchbase: JSON IN, JSON OUT is our booth messaging banner/theme. We have inflatables on the booth so people can come in and sit down and chat with us.
VMblog: What message about your product can you send attendees back with to sell their boss on your technology?
Couchbase: Enterprise customers like United Airlines, Verizon and GE are using the Couchbase data platform to build solutions that deliver exceptional customer experiences. Couchbase makes application development easier with support for native JSON, and makes application deployment and operational management easier with support for containers and cloud. Couchbase helps customers deliver amazing customer experiences faster, more flexibly, and more cost effectively.
We can also send links to our documentation on ‘best practices', blogs, presentations etc.
VMblog: Why should a DockerCon attendee add you to their MUST SEE list?
Couchbase: Databases and containers go hand-in-hand. Scalability, manageability, and availability are some of the biggest operational challenges that enterprises face today. Working with a database that makes application development easier and that addresses these operational challenges is crucial to making applications successful in the real world.

Couchbase: Couchbase is a great fit for Container technology due to our core design principles such as: multi-dimensional scaling, asynchronous approach and memory-first architecture.
VMblog: Is this your first DockerCon event as a sponsor?
Couchbase: We sponsored it last year. We're back again this year because we think our technology compliments Container technology well and the audience can benefit by learning how.
