Documentation for storage backend options in couchbase-cli

I’ve been playing with the couchbase-cli recently, and found about the --storage-backend option for couchbase buckets (bucket-create command). Unfortunately, I couldn’t find anything about the second option, magma, in the documentation - and not much about the first one, apart from the github page.

Are they pro and cons of using magma, or is it deprecated/in development and couchstore should be prefered instead ? Is one of those features enterprise edition only ?


Magma is not yet available for use. We will make a Beta version available next year. It will be an EE only storage engine. It is targeted for storing large amounts (several TB) of data per node.
