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.

Scylla

Scylla is well suited for high-throughput scenarios where keyed data must be read or written with consistently low latency. It's less appropriate for use cases requiring relational queries, secondary indexes, or more structured data sets.

Pros

Couchbase

  • Easy to store unstructured data and has great performance
  • Managing security is super easy which can be managed across different levels
  • UI is pretty simple to use and manage the cluster
  • Backup of the data is very easy and the restoration/recovery is fairly easy as well with the in-built tools.
  • Easy integration with elasticsearch for replication
  • It is fairly easy to scale up or scale down the cluster

  • Parity with Cassandra
  • Practical features

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.

Scylla

  • Better documentation for best practices (e.g., how to effectively use connection pooling)

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.

Very easy-to-understand syntax--uses CQL (same as Cassandra), which has many similarities to standard SQL. There are some gotchas, however, that must be known during schema development.

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.

Scylla

Scylla has a quick learning curve (same as Cassandra) compared to other proprietary solutions like BigTable. It supports higher throughput and lower latency that other NoSQL databases like MongoDB, which sacrifice those features for more flexibility and unique features.

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.

Scylla

  • Addresses latency requirements of our platform
