Couchbase

It is well suited to hold our player data and give us ease of access to it. Most of our multiplayer features in our titles leverage querying couchbase for the relevant player data. The resiliency of couchbase also gives us peace of mind with having a up to date replica and backups. I am not entirely sure were couchbase would not be appropriate in my experience

DataStax

Datastax Cassandra is a Java based linearly scalable NoSQL database, best-in-class tunable performance, fault tolerant, distributed, masterless, time series database and has easy-to-use administration and monitoring functionality with opscenter. Configured correctly there is no downtime and no data loss. The documentation is exhaustive, and the community is agile and supportive, and Datastax provides good support. For all these reasons, Datastax Cassandra has become a NoSQL technology of choice for many platforms.However it has some time investment on infrastructure and regular operational tasks, and if you do not have bandwidth for it, a managed NoSQL solution like DynamoDB might be more appropriate. Also if you have search needs on Cassandra and do not have corresponding Spark/Solr setup, Datastax Cassandra might not be ideal for you.

Pros

Couchbase

  • Key/value data store. Couchbase is blazing fast at data access and retrieval when you know what keys you want to access.
  • Data querying with N1QL. If you have your indexes set up right, searching your unstructured data can be really fast too.
  • Management dashboard. The Couchbase platform has a great admin panel that provides tons of insights into how your cluster is performing.

DataStax

  • Scalability: it provides near linear scalability being based on open source Cassandra
  • Opscenter: it is a powerful and complete tool for monitoring
  • You can use Spark for analytics workloads

Cons

Couchbase

  • Should allow servers to change their roles on the fly - currently you will need to take down the server and re-assign roles
  • SDK documentation is not as helpful and should have more examples
  • No pre-compiled procedures - unlike in SQL Server, Couchbase does not have pre-compiled stored procedures therefore we have to run various test to optimize our application

DataStax

  • Support for aggregation functions is still limited.

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.

Couchbase's performance has been excellent in our experience. In one particular case, the use of Couchbase instead of RDBMS improved page load speeds by an order of magnitude. The fact that adding more nodes scales both the read and write performance automatically and transparently has been particularly advantageous for our OLTP use cases.

Alternatives Considered

Couchbase

I'm not qualified enough to make a meaningful comparison, but 2 years after, I hear regularly about issues on Mongo from the other teams, especially on the SRE side. On our side, not much to say, except that it works. Ram, CPU, disk behave like expected. Same for bandwidth. Response time stays low. Not much to add.

DataStax

We chose datastax because we need a system always available and capable of ingesting a large amount of data per second, even if eventually consistent and with multi data center sync native support.We considered Cloudera as an alternative using Kafka as the ingestion layer but we were not completely satisfied with the multi data center support.

Scalability

The system is multidimensional scalable. We can enable a specific service (DATA, INDEX, QUERY, ...) on specific nodes inside a cluster.The only limit, for now, is the Map/Reduce view service that is combined with the DATA service. It is then not possible to scale it independently from DATA nodes.

Return on Investment

Couchbase

  • We can implement the mobile app using community release.
  • The peer to peer syncing technology saves our development time.
  • The CRUD process will be stopped when index and view are growing rapidly, we have to delete index files and reindex again.
Kok Sang | TrustRadius Reviewer

DataStax

  • Almost zero downtime, best for business continuity.
  • Easy to do maintenance online.
