Couchbase

Couchbase is well suited in scenarios where cost plays a major role and the performance can't be compromised. It was the best option for us to replace a famous RDBMS because of licensi[ng] cost reason but boy were we happy about the performance or what. It certainly is not or less appropriate in the scenarios where there are resource constraints. You can't run too many Couchbase clusters on a single machine if it's not a beefy machine.

MongoDB

MongoDB is well suited to sensitive data issues due to its sophisticated security controls and advanced functionality. It is also well suited to mission critical tasks due to its high availability from geographically distributed fault tolerance.
It is probably less suited for less mission critical applications due to the amount of data it stores as this could be an extra cost to the organisation and could possibly implement a cheaper tool.

Pros

Couchbase

  • High performance, fast secure flexible with smart architecture and it’s faster other than competitors in the market.
  • We can control all data security, cluster configs, and managing operations costs.
  • Proficiency to secure and isolate database information in a secure environment to prevent undefined access.
  • Ability to specify IP address ranges, routing tables, network gateways, and subnets according to your private IT department protocols.

MongoDB

  • Being a JSON language optimizes the response time of a query, you can directly build a query logic from the same service
  • You can install a local, database-based environment rather than the non-relational real-time bases such a firebase does not allow, the local environment is paramount since you can work without relying on the internet.
  • Forming collections in Mango is relatively simple, you do not need to know of query to work with it, since it has a simple graphic environment that allows you to manage databases for those who are not experts in console management.

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.

MongoDB

  • An aggregate pipeline can be a bit overwhelming as a newcomer.
  • There's still no real concept of joins with references/foreign keys, although the aggregate framework has a feature that is close.
  • Database management/dev ops can still be time-consuming if rolling your own deployments. (Thankfully there are plenty of providers like Compose or even MongoDB's own Atlas that helps take care of the nitty-gritty.

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

I am looking forward to increasing our SaaS subscriptions such that I get to experience global replica sets, working in reads from secondaries, and what not. Can't wait to be able to exploit some of the power that the "Big Boys" use MongoDB for.

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.

NoSQL database systems such as MongoDB lack graphical interfaces by default and therefore to improve usability it is necessary to install third-party applications to see more visually the schemas and stored documents. In addition, these tools also allow us to visualize the commands to be executed for each operation.

Performance

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.

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.

The support is generally quite good for the solution. It allows you to modify a support plan and enable you to bring in a different plan for your different needs.
This can be broken into: Developer, Pro, and Enterprise.Using Pro we have SLAs in place as we work on big systems which would bring severe consequences if there is downtime.

While the setup and configuration of MongoDB is pretty straight forward, having a vendor that performs automatic backups and scales the cluster automatically is very convenient. If you do not have a system administrator or DBA familiar with MongoDB on hand, it's a very good idea to use a 3rd party vendor that specializes in MongoDB hosting. The value is very well worth it over hosting it yourself since the cost is often reasonable among providers.

Alternatives Considered

Couchbase

While in this testing phase, the main feature of Couchbase is the mobile integration. Most of the one listed above use the same algorithm whether it is mobile or desktop. Couchbase offers their Lite version which has everything you need to use the Couchbase suite without having the bulkiness of the full suite.

MongoDB was the most full-featured NoSQL database we evaluated - that offered atomic transactions at a document level, built-in HA & DR, open source, robust queries, and enterprise level support.Other platforms had specific parts of what we were looking for - MongoDB had it all.

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

MongoDB

  • Much faster development time.
  • Price is fantastic compared to MSSQL when you consider OS costs and the entire package.
  • Only negative to me is the lack of DBA skills for it, due to it being a new player in the field. I feel like that will get better as time moves on however.
