Couchbase

We used Couchbase because of its flexibility and provide good performance to the applications.It also has NoSQL databases with built-in Software Development Kits (SDK) to improve the performance while developers are working.It also helps to deliver timely updates to the customers that provide flexibility to use to improve any ongoing changes such as schema changes, etc. The team has full control over the front end as well as the back end.

Percona Server for MySQL

Percona Server for MySQL covers 100% of our requirements in terms of our OLTP traffic and provides the High Availability levels required through a typical primary and 2 replica's using semi-synchronous replication. We're able to scale our writes using sharding, but a true distributed database would be a great option on top of this. In terms of OLAP traffic, we leverage columns stores available, but Percona Server fairs well

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.

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.

It is easy to install and use. Using it along with Percona Monitoring and Management makes it even easier to use.

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.

Alternatives Considered

Couchbase

Single console for managing multi-cluster and multi-cloud deployment options and [the] ability to secure and isolate database information in a secure environment to prevent undefined access is great. Analyzing and delivering information and fast access and processing data securely with different access levels was much more important than before. So we used Couchbase Cloud to overcome this challenge, both for ourselves and for our client projects.

Percona Server for MySQL

Performance and stability sets Percona Server for MySQL apart from the rest. Percona embraces the upstream version and contributes towards the upstream version making MySQL stronger on two fronts and thus having a much larger community. Many quality contributions have been made by Percona into the base code. Percona provides great tools to support Percona Server for MySQL and this makes the monitoring and management easier

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

Percona Server for MySQL

  • At the performance level, it maintains and even improves other open-source databases such as MariaDB or some commercial ones such as Oracle.
  • If we compare it with MySQL, we could have up to 50% improvement in performance.
  • For some small companies or startups, the price of the complete solution and the support can be a bit high.
