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

InfluxDB

InfluxDB is very good at storing monitoring metrics (e.g. performance data). InfluxDB is not the right choice if you need to store other data types (like plain text, data relations etc.).

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.

InfluxDB

  • Time series data
  • Very fast queries
  • Many options to configure and tune database

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

InfluxDB

  • Small, but growing community - This database engine's community is much smaller than alternatives. This can make finding a DBA or support less easy, but not impossible.
  • Documentation could be improved - The docs for getting started don't effectively lead first-time users to understand how the underlying systems are designed.
  • Performance Analysis - There seems to be a lack of tools to give context to slow queries or other performance issues
  • Out-of-the-box security - The out of the box security is designed to operate in an internal network and is 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

InfluxDB simply works. There is no need to switch to another solution if you don't need native clustering, HA or security (and don't want to add those features yourself). I provide a 10-star rating since InfluxDB promotes itself as a simple, but effective time-series database. If you look at what it provides and what was advertised, there is a 100% match, which is why I can't refuse to give a perfect rating. All the small things that are "not so cool" can be overlooked.

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

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 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.

We have worked with the InfluxDB support team a few times so far and it has been positive. Issues submitted are worked on promptly and we have good feedback.

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.

InfluxDB is much easier to initially setup and scale compared to Graphite (now known as Whisper). With a smaller team we found Graphite too much overhead that would make operational support a significant blocker or generation of technical debt.

Scalability

Couchbase

Couchbase 8.4
Based on 53 answers
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

InfluxDB

  • InfluxDB is a quick and easy solution if the customers need to store and handle large amounts of time-series data
  • InfluxDB is so simple that almost no training is needed
  • InfluxDB had a negative impact in terms of security since the open-source version lacks relevant features; therefore all customers have to build their own security solution on top of InfluxDB if they can't afford the enterprise version
