So currently this is a common setup:
Client -> Ajax -> Server CRUD -> Database
Does Couchbase allow me to do this?
Client -> Ajax -> Database
This might be more technically correct:
Client -> Ajax REST -> Database
Does this mean that I could just have the client directly interacting with the database, therefore reducing the load on the server? Theoretically this would make scaling a website more cost efficient.
If so, has this method been increasing in popularity usage? If not, why? It seems like this is a huge advantage.
