Amazon Athena

Amazon Athena is well suited for those who want to be able to use SQL queries to look at and analyze their data. Once you get up and running with the system and have all of your preferences ironed out, this is a very simple to understand and easy to use program that can help make information-based decisions. How could you not love that!?

Couchbase

Couchbase is well suited in scenarios where cost plays a major role and the performance can't be compromised. It was the best option for us to replace a famous RDBMS because of licensi[ng] cost reason but boy were we happy about the performance or what. It certainly is not or less appropriate in the scenarios where there are resource constraints. You can't run too many Couchbase clusters on a single machine if it's not a beefy machine.

Pros

  • Compatibility with other programs is a nice feature that is very useful.

Couchbase

  • We can control all data security, cluster configs, and managing operations costs.
  • Proficiency to secure and isolate database information in a secure environment to prevent undefined access.

Cons

Amazon Athena

  • I wish that the program provided individualized access for different users instead of everyone seeing everything.
  • Initial setup can be a bit tedious for those unfamiliar with this type of querying.
  • Support can be a little lacking when it comes to additional features.

Couchbase

  • Community edition has various limitations, like [the] inability to view/edit documents over a certain threshold or inability to use various types of [optimized] indexes.
  • The indexes performance degrades when a certain number of mutations is reached.
  • The views creation can be quite slow and impacts the deployment speed for large buckets.

I rarely actually use Couchbase Server, I just stay up-to-date with the features that it provides. However, when the need arises for a NoSQL datastore, then I will strongly consider it as an option

Couchbase has been quite a usable for our implementation. We had similar experience with our previous "trial" implementation, however it was short lived.
Couchbase has so far exceeded expectation. Our implementation team is more confident than ever before.
When we are Live for more than 6 months, I'm hoping to enhance this rating.

Performance for key-value is great. Indexing can be slow on large dataset, index rebuilds also can take long, especially in recovery situations. Although relational use case is fully supported and performance is good, architects and developers need to better refactor the applications and data model. Blind move from relational to Couchbase is not always smooth.

I haven't had many opportunities to request support, I will look forward to better the rating. We have technical development and integration team who reach out directly to TAM at Couchbase.

While in this testing phase, the main feature of Couchbase is the mobile integration. Most of the one listed above use the same algorithm whether it is mobile or desktop. Couchbase offers their Lite version which has everything you need to use the Couchbase suite without having the bulkiness of the full suite.

So far, the way that we mange and upgrade our clusters has be very smooth. It works like a dream when we use it in concert with AWS and their EC2 machines. Having access to powerful instances along side the Couchbase interface is amazing and allows us to do rebalances or maintenance without a worry

Return on Investment

Amazon Athena

  • Aided in decision making processes that has saved money for departments and the company.
  • The program takes over doing the majority of the work that used to be manual for a lot of people. Fantastic time-saver.
  • The program makes other programs not as useful as they once were, which helped save money.

Couchbase

  • N1QL's SQL-like syntax has made bringing new developers up to speed both easy and inexpensive.
  • The schema-less approach to data store has increased agility.
  • Operating at scale, Couchbase tends to be less expensive than major RDBMS solutions, especially once you implement high availability in RDBMS.
