    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.

    Oracle Database Cloud Service

    • Cost Effective & Flexible: Customers can start as low as a single OCPU VM up to 24 OCPUs. Customers pay only for OCPUs and Storage used.
    • Ease Of Getting Started: Customers can easily create Oracle Certified, full-featured, fully supported 11g, 12c (both 12.1 & 12.2) databases with choice of any database edition.
    • Built-in High Availability Constructs: Customers can easily deploy 2-node RAC configurations with all the VM shapes. For example: Easily deploy a 2-node RAC configuration with 2 core Virtual Machines and shared block storage of up to 40 TB.
    • Durable & Scalable Storage: Customers can use remote storage starting at 256GB up to 40 TB. Storage can be scale up with no downtime.
    • Secure: Customers still get all the advantages of our Oracle IAM for management control and VCN Security lists for securing their database environments.

    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

    Oracle Database Cloud Service

    • Eliminates the requirement of hardware and installation.
    • Minimizes the cost of operation and maintenance.
    • Scalable to meet the increase in requirements.
    • Enhances integrity, connectivity and performance of our applications.
    • Reliable in terms of data security.
    • Improved speed of querying and searching.

    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.

    • When we restart the DBaaS instance, it seems like we had to add the NIC network back again. I'm not sure if it's specific to our instance configuration!

    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.

    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.

    I would prefer the oracle database as service where my complete implementation is on Oracle Cloud Platform and as BI Implementation where datawarehouse is built on oracle database.

    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.

    Oracle Database Cloud Service

    • Billing on Hosted Environment per hour, OCPU per hour, block volumes, object storage, etc.
    • Costing & maintenance, patching.
    • Security & TDE cycles.
    • Backups & recovery.
    • The features are complemented by database lifecycle management features, like configuration management, performance management, patch automation, etc. which make the solution complete from a DBaaS administrator’s perspective as well.
    • Manager 12c covers all the major use cases for DBaaS, which yield significant business benefits and high ROI.
