Big day for Membase (the company, ex Northscale) announcing the release of Membase (the product) 1.0. First time we’ve heard about it was end of July when we took a look at what is Membase. At that moment we’ve also learned that one of the companies using Membase is Zynga (nb Zynga is also a Membase contributer).
Now, 3 months later we have Membase 1.0 release
 coming in two flavors:
- Membase Server Enterprise Edition is a certified distribution of Membase, available for download and purchase at membase.com. Annual product subscriptions start at $999 per node, granting a software use license and access to the Membase Network, which delivers software upgrades, hot fixes, maintenance releases and product support.
- Membase Server Community Edition is a community binary, downloadable at membase.org, where developers can also access and contribute to the source code.
By checking the “supporting quotes” section of the announcement, I’m also noticing a couple of other Membase users: ShareThis, NaviNet, Loggly. So hopefully soon we will also have some case studies.
Correction: This general availability release of Membase has version 1.6, but it is still the first production ready release of Membase.
