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

Google BigQuery

BigQuery is unlike anything we've used as a big data tool. It is perfectly suited to query large data sets quickly and to store those large data sets for any time use. It's perfect for storing data and using it for reports. Logging data is the perfect application for BigQuery, but transactional data is possible as well

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.

Google BigQuery

  • How many pros can a person type? This storage program gives workers and students the reality of unlimited storage space. I have never came close to overfilling my google cloud storage because it's huge and the best. I can view anything I save on there from any of my internet devices which is very important.
  • Depending on how you have the program set up - either online or through an application that lives on your desktop, dragging and dropping files to and from Cloud Storage couldn't be any more uncomplicated. Plus, new users who meet certain criteria - like updating personal security, or share the program receive additional free online storage.
  • The array of tools is very impressive, intuitive to use, and well organized in the sense that you don't have to go looking for individual apps. They're all easily accessed via a single dropdown.

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

Google BigQuery

  • Though it is SQL some syntax are different but they are getting used to after you use for some time.
  • The legacy SQL is in beta state but can be used and you can run the query with simple SQL.
  • More documentation is needed for using User-defined functions in Big Query.

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.

BigQuery is a little bit difficult to learn at first. The tools are all there but it takes a few hours of practice and trial and error to be comfortable processing a large dataset. It can handle quite a bit and the cloud storage makes those experimental practice hours much easier to do in your spare time. The software is capable of doing a lot, it's just a matter of being patient and learning the ways of BigQuery.

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.

I rated the overall support for Google BigQuery as a mediocre five because it has limited support from Google. Instead, it is heavily dependent on an organization's IT resources such as SQL analysts and Data Architects to run big data reports or maintain data quality. Additionally, if errors occur during a run of complex SQL queries or when sending data to Google BigQuery from other sources, Google provides basic email support which needs to be complemented with internal data warehouse support to fix the root cause of the database errors. Finally, due to constraints on the amount of data an analyst can query or pay the additional cost when exceeding the limit, basic Google support is not sufficient to meet data needs without interruption.

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.

Spinning up, provisioning, maintaining and debugging a Hadoop solution can be non-trivial, painful. I'm talking about both GCE based or HDInsight clusters. It requires expertise (+ employee hire, costs). With BigQuery if someone has a good SQL knowledge (and maybe a little programming), can already start to test and develop. All of the infrastructure and platform services are taken care of. Google BigQuery is a magnitudes simpler to use than Hadoop, but you have to evaluate the costs. BigQuery billing is dependent on your data size and how much data your query touches.

Scalability

Couchbase

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

Google BigQuery

  • Google BigQuery has had enormous impact in terms of ROI to our business, as it has allowed us to ease our dependence on our physical servers, which we pay for monthly from another hosting service. We have been able to run multiple enterprise scale data processing applications with almost no investment
  • Since our business is highly client focused, Google Cloud Platform, and BigQuery specifically, has allowed us to get very granular in how our usage should be attributed to different projects, clients, and teams.
  • Plain and simple, I believe the meager investments that we have made in Google BigQuery have paid themselves back hundreds of times over.
