    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.

    MongoDB Atlas

    It is suitable for database administrative operations that require a high level of speed, since by not working with conventional SQL it is possible to create data records faster, and therefore better manage work time. It is not necessary to create backend connections for the databases, since these backends of different web pages and applications automatically centralize the development data in a single place, which is useful when managing many services in parallel. It is much easier and faster to get a specific document based on special characteristics of your data, through the filtering system of MongoDB Atlas, since it manages large numbers of servers, and has a high capacity of data mimicry. The cluster shows a history of all the operations that have been performed during the day, so that it is easy to make job regressions in case you need to identify an error that occurred at some point during the day. All data from the MongoDB web application is automatically stored in the Atlas cloud.

    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

    MongoDB Atlas

    • No infrastructure on our side. Free of management.
    • Easy to scale up and down.

    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.

    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

    Couchbase

    Couchbase 8.6
    Based on 156 answers
    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.

    We love MongoDB support and have great relationship with them. When we decided to go with MongoDB Atlas, they sent a team of 5 to our company to discuss the process of setting up a Mongo cluster and walked us through. when we have questions, we create a ticket and they will respond very quickly

    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.

    MongoDB Atlas

    When choosing a NoSQL, open source database, MongoDB is the clear winner from an implementation standpoint. For databases that are better suited for highly-organized data, a traditional database engine like MySQL, PostgreSQL, or Oracle's RDBMS may be a better choice. When the requirement is for a NoSQL production database, MongoDB and Atlas are the clear winners from an implementation and management perspective and is very cost-competitive with offerings from Azure Cosmos and Amazon Document DB.

    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.

    MongoDB Atlas

    • Since we can cover a much more exhaustive database management with MongoDB Atlas, we can say that we have partly increased our profit intake in relation to the time we have been using the software.
    • MongoDB Atlas has improved our earnings by 400%, which leaves our current ROI at a percentage of 5, having achieved our first 200% in the first half year of using the software.
