Couchbase

We used Couchbase because of its flexibility and provide good performance to the applications.It also has NoSQL databases with built-in Software Development Kits (SDK) to improve the performance while developers are working.It also helps to deliver timely updates to the customers that provide flexibility to use to improve any ongoing changes such as schema changes, etc. The team has full control over the front end as well as the back end.

Db2 on Cloud

A great product - would not shy away at all. It has some great features that makes it easy to read and write. Their on-memory technology for on-prem is good and overall it's user friendly with its approach. I even like the IBM product support team on helping out on our issues. There is massive community support over online bugs and seems like one of my best go to tools for Data Science.

Pros

Couchbase

  • Easy to store unstructured data and has great performance

Cons

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.

Db2 on Cloud

  • UI : the UI can be improved to a great extent. Ideally we would want to see the UI/UX to match with latest trends.
  • Limitation to a 15TB database size for any edition below than ES for on-prem. I am sure Cloud solves it, but falls in the same range as others (sometimes higher), making it maybe not the first one to go to.

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.

Alternatives Considered

Couchbase

Single console for managing multi-cluster and multi-cloud deployment options and [the] ability to secure and isolate database information in a secure environment to prevent undefined access is great. Analyzing and delivering information and fast access and processing data securely with different access levels was much more important than before. So we used Couchbase Cloud to overcome this challenge, both for ourselves and for our client projects.

IBM Db2 is cheap, easy to use, and less human intervention is required.

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

  • 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.
Brant Burnett | TrustRadius Reviewer

Db2 on Cloud

  • Not as much business as in Pakistan.
  • It has yet to get developed in the market.
  • Rather new for many customers.
