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.

Read full review Pros 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 Read full review Its dashboard is quite clear and visible. Its reports are very flexible and helpful for us since they contain all the information that is necessary. The content scheduling feature is good in facilitating us by publishing the content at the time we set. A content repository is amazing as it allows editing, tagging and managing, and storage of the published as well as scheduled publish content. Read full review Cons 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.

Ingeniux could be more interactive when it comes to exporting/importing documents. Read full review Likelihood to Renew
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.

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.

was one type of product used in our company for a couple of use-cases. The Aerospike is something we [analyzed] not so long time ago as an interesting alternative, due to its performance characteristics. The
was and is still being used for [the] distributed caching use-case, but it will be replaced eventually by Couchbase. Though each of these products [has] its own strengths and weaknesses, we prefer sticking to Couchbase because of [the] experience we have with this product and because it is cost-effective for our organization.

I have only used the free versions of the other softwares. My Ingeniux CMS experience was much better but I had the paid version

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
Read full review Return on Investment 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. Read full review Company employees can easily locate product documentation now. Our team doesn't have to field nearly as many pings and calls from people looking for content. The writers can manage the content much more easily now. For example, multiple writers can work on individual topics as opposed to passing around Word files. We can single-source content that is duplicated across the site. This is a huge time saver. Read full review ScreenShots
