    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.

    SAP HANA

    Best suited for enterprise-scale spatial data management and analysis, where multiple spatial systems or databases exist in silos.Too expensive for project level analysis and lacks advanced spatial analysis tools as well as support for more spatial data formats for ingestion.

    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
    Jonathan Gurwitz | TrustRadius Reviewer

    SAP HANA

    • If required, SAP S/4HANA may be installed and configured on the cloud.
    • Because of the simplification of functionality, IT personnel may be able to devote more of their time and resources to delivering services rather than doing maintenance tasks.
    • Assist businesses in making better decisions about their operations by providing better information.
    • SAP HANA is a superb web solution with advanced remote data synchronization capabilities that is very quick and easy to use.
    Godfrey Chimbalanga | TrustRadius Reviewer

    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.

    SAP HANA

    • Better workload management - de-prioritize long running queries.
    • Better scheduling and monitoring platform for XSA jobs. Built-in scheduler.
    • Dependency analyzer like the one for CDS views for Calculation views.
    • UI development options like ASAP selection screen for simple use cases.
    • Built-in table editor.

    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

    At this moment we are not focusing on SAP, however would love to in the future. This is primarily because of our limited ability to generate more revenue to fund for SAP partnerships and products. Our initial tryst with SAP Partneredge open ecosystem didn't go as planned and we have shelved that for now. Hope we can revive in the future

    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.

    In addition to the points described in the previous parts of the review, I believe that as I gain more experience with the product over time, I will be able to better describe my experience with this tool. Meanwhile, I can confirm that the possibilities presented to my organization by the change to SAP HANA, at the moment, have been very important to evolve the analytical and strategic field towards a new path.

    Performance

    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.

    SAP HANA is the best in the current market. The price point is competitive at the moment despite its level. It integrates well with other applications across geographies as well as multiple data sources. Its predictive analytics function really helps to thanks HANAs advanced data vis. abilities. Will be my choice for clients for the next few years.

    Professional GIS people are some of the most risk-averse there are, and it's difficult to get them to move to HANA in one step. Start with small projects building to 80% use of HANA spatial over time.

    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.

    SAP Hana is beneficial because it has a
    pleasant interface, is well structured, has excellent mobile accessibility, and
    has solid permission control options. It is also interoperable with other
    databases, hardware, and software, making it more adaptable and versatile.

    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.

    SAP HANA

    • Wide variety of data types can be maintained easily, so flexibility is in our hands.
    • The decision we made by analyzing the generated report really had a great positive impact.
    • Considering the scalability SAP HANA offers, it is the best investment.
