ODBC has been around since the early 1990’s as a standard API to access various data sources, traditionally against structured data sources like relational databases. SIMBA Technologies recently released an ODBC Driver for Couchbase; this has opened up Couchbase to a number of third party data integration and reporting tools. This is a quick start guide on how to configure ODBC access for Couchbase on a Windows workstation with the SIMBA ODBC Driver for Couchbase.
