Damien Katz is the creator of Apache CouchDB and co-founder of CouchOne, which merged with Membase to form Couchbase. He began his developer life working on Lotus Notes for Iris Associates, acquired by IBM. With a number of patents under his belt and broad acknowledgement of the superior sync capabilities of Notes, Damien set out to create a new kind of database better suited to the needs of web and cloud computing. In 2005 he stated he was working on a "storage system for a large scale object database" and called it CouchDB (Cluster Of Unreliable Commodity Hardware). In 2008, it became a top-level Apache project maintained at the Apache Software Foundation. In 2009, Damien, along with J. Chris Anderson and Jan Lehnardt, founded CouchOne.
