What is a vBucket in Couchbase?


vBuckets are sometimes referred to as shards. i.e. partition of data, that allows data distribution all over the nodes in a cluster. They are used to allocate/distribute information effectively across a cluster. vBuckets do not have a fixed physical location on nodes; therefore there is a mapping of vBuckets to nodes known as the cluster map. By default each bucket is divided into 1024 vBuckets.
