Best suited when edge devices have interrupted internet connection. And Couchbase provides reliable data transfer. If used for attachment Couchbase has a very poor offering. A hard limit of 20 MB is not okay. They have the best conflict resolution but not so great query language on Couchbase lite.

In my current project, I am saving the full model into the Realm Database. it takes very little time to integrate into our existing project. So it helps us to save a lot of time and easy to fetch data and CRUD operation with any type of data. and according to our need, we can modify it as well.
Read full review Pros Couchbase performance is exceptional both for in-memory and persisted transactions. Handling of node failures and cluster rebalancing (high availability). Enterprise support from Couchbase themselves Good documentation Streaming of bucket (database) level mutations via their Database Change Protocol (DCP). Replication of datasets between native clients and Couchbase buckets Handling of simultaneous writes to the same record with performance penalties Read full review Tracking attendance Running reports, both financial and membership-related Nursery check-in Read full review Cons The N1QL engine performs poorly compared to SQL engines due to the number of interactions needed, so if your use case involves the need for a lot of SQL-like query activity as opposed to the direct fetch of data in the form of a key/value map you may want to consider a RDBMS that has support for json data types so that you can more easily mix the use of relational and non-relational approaches to data access. You have to be careful when using multiple capabilities (e.g. transactions with Sync Gateway) as you will typically run into problems where one technology may not operate correctly in combination with another. There are quality problems with some newly released features, so be careful with being an early adopter unless you really need the capability. We somewhat desperately adopted the use of transactions, but went through multiple bughunt cycles with Couchbase working the kinks out.

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
Read full review Usability
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.

One of Couchbase’s greatest assets is its performance with large datasets. Properly set up with well-sized clusters, it is also highly reliable and scalable. User management could be better though, and security often feels like an afterthought. Couchbase has improved tremendously since we started using it, so I am sure that these issues will be ironed out.

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.

Our transition to Realm was fantastic. We had a rep do two days of training with staff. She also provided us with a step-by-step plan for our rollout to the congregation. In addition to the fabulous customer service team, the "help" section of the Realm website is useful--it includes written answers and also video tutorials/webinars. The search function in the help section is built effectively.

was one type of product used in our company for a couple of use-cases. The Aerospike is something we [analyzed] not so long time ago as an interesting alternative, due to its performance characteristics. The
was and is still being used for [the] distributed caching use-case, but it will be replaced eventually by Couchbase. Though each of these products [has] its own strengths and weaknesses, we prefer sticking to Couchbase because of [the] experience we have with this product and because it is cost-effective for our organization.

From my experience Realm is fatter than
. Realm has less Query and is easy to understand. even new developers also can use it In his/her project. It has a good document so a new developer can read and understand and apply it to the project.
is old and not so easy to understand. we need to add a third-party library to easily use

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
Read full review Return on Investment Great performance. Leading Couchbase Lite capabilities for mobile use. Developers' learning curve with replica reads and multi cluster can be long. Needs guidance and nurturing. Cluster maintenance during OS patching, etc. has multiple ways to approach. Operational teams may need some guidance. Read full review This is not my area (finance), but efficiency increased when we moved from Church Windows to Realm. Formatted reports are a huge plus--no need to create a merge document for handouts to be in a usable format. Read full review ScreenShots
