    Couchbase

    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.

    Google BigQuery

    If you are using Google suites like Analytics 360, Big Query can be a very useful tool for storing & querying your data because of its seem less integration within Google environment. Also if your organisation has large set of data and you want fast data processing, then only it makes sense to move to Google BigQuery otherwise there are cheaper alternatives available.

    Pros

    Couchbase

    • 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
    Jonathan Gurwitz | TrustRadius Reviewer

    Google BigQuery

    • Huge plus point if you have idea running SQL scripts.
    • The ability to store and manage multiple data warehouses is a big plus point which helps a lot for growing businesses.
    • Easy integration with tools like Data Studio and Google Analytics which provides great data warehouse and data management solutions.
    Rounak Verma | TrustRadius Reviewer

    Cons

    Couchbase

    • 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.

    Google BigQuery

    • One issue with Google Cloud Storage is its price. For one to have that premium Google Cloud Storage, for the purpose of massive storage, he/she must have adequate cash. Otherwise, Google Cloud Storage is a safe and perfect online storage platform.
    • The only thing that can come to mind that would be annoying with this software was that sometimes when trying to share files on the Cloud with coworkers, it would just not share at all, or there would be a massive delay in when I shared them and when they received them. Other than that though, everything is perfect with this.

    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.

    web UI is easy and convenient. Many RDBMS clients such as aqua data studio, Dbeaver data grid, and others connect. Range of well-documented APIs available. The range of features keeps expanding, increasing similar features to traditional RDBMS such as Oracle and DB2

    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.

    BigQuery can be difficult to support because it is so solid as a product. Many of the issues you will see are related to your own data sets, however you may see issues importing data and managing jobs. If this occurs, it can be a challenge to get to speak to the correct person who can help you.

    Alternatives Considered

    Couchbase

    When it comes to data storage solutions it generally all densely depends on requirements which have to be met. Couchbase is a great choice for enterprise projects where scaling together with possibly the highest achievable performance is mandatory. Having pricing under control is yet another Couchbase highlight if comparing with its direct competitors. Finally, it allows to avoid vendor lock-in.

    Google BigQuery

    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.

    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

    Couchbase

    • 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.

    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.
