Couchbase

It is well suited to hold our player data and give us ease of access to it. Most of our multiplayer features in our titles leverage querying couchbase for the relevant player data. The resiliency of couchbase also gives us peace of mind with having a up to date replica and backups. I am not entirely sure were couchbase would not be appropriate in my experience

SingleStore (formerly MemSQL)

SingleStore DB (formerly MemSQL) is good for a high-volume, real-time data feed, a high number of concurrent queries, and excellent for both OLAP and OLTP workloads. It's not good for unstructured data store.

Pros

Couchbase

  • Key/value data store. Couchbase is blazing fast at data access and retrieval when you know what keys you want to access.
  • Data querying with N1QL. If you have your indexes set up right, searching your unstructured data can be really fast too.
  • Management dashboard. The Couchbase platform has a great admin panel that provides tons of insights into how your cluster is performing.

  • High data volume processing.
  • Operational data enablement.

Cons

Couchbase

  • Should allow servers to change their roles on the fly - currently you will need to take down the server and re-assign roles
  • SDK documentation is not as helpful and should have more examples
  • No pre-compiled procedures - unlike in SQL Server, Couchbase does not have pre-compiled stored procedures therefore we have to run various test to optimize our application

  • GUI needs to be better.
  • To scale out on the fly needs to be a little simpler.

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

I still want to see the performance about using latest version of spark and memsql. About renewal, if there is a new and better version of spark-memsql connector, then maybe.

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.

SingleStore DB (formerly MemSQL) covers a wide spectrum of use-cases and provides ANSI-SQL support, MySQL drop-in replacement.It supports several deployment options--cloud, Helios, on-premise bare-metal or virtualized. Has drivers for many programming languages like Java and Python, for BI tools like Zoomdata and Tableau.

Couchbase's performance has been excellent in our experience. In one particular case, the use of Couchbase instead of RDBMS improved page load speeds by an order of magnitude. The fact that adding more nodes scales both the read and write performance automatically and transparently has been particularly advantageous for our OLTP use cases.

I haven't had many opportunities to request support, I will look forward to better the rating. We have technical development and integration team who reach out directly to TAM at Couchbase.

The team is always available, responsive, and quite helpful. It is clear by their answers that the support reps are experts in SingleStore DB (formerly MemSQL). They can deliver proper answers and understand the client's environment. I never had an issue that took them long to figure out. They are also ready to walk us through upgrades and have meetings whenever required.

Alternatives Considered

Couchbase

I'm not qualified enough to make a meaningful comparison, but 2 years after, I hear regularly about issues on Mongo from the other teams, especially on the SRE side. On our side, not much to say, except that it works. Ram, CPU, disk behave like expected. Same for bandwidth. Response time stays low. Not much to add.

  • VoltDB is more transactional.
  • Redis just a k-v as is Voldemort.
  • Elasticsearch security is an issue. Plus more of reads than writes
  • Aerospike great K-V that is great with writes and reads. But expensive. More expensive than SingleStore DB (formerly MemSQL).
  • Firebird opensource, but scalability is an issue
  • SingleStore DB (formerly MemSQL) at least supports ANSI-SQL. Between SingleStore DB (formerly MemSQL) and VoltDB, I would choose VoltDB, based on pricing.

Scalability

Couchbase

Couchbase 8.4
Based on 53 answers
The system is multidimensional scalable. We can enable a specific service (DATA, INDEX, QUERY, ...) on specific nodes inside a cluster.The only limit, for now, is the Map/Reduce view service that is combined with the DATA service. It is then not possible to scale it independently from DATA nodes.

Return on Investment

Couchbase

  • We can implement the mobile app using community release.
  • The peer to peer syncing technology saves our development time.
  • The CRUD process will be stopped when index and view are growing rapidly, we have to delete index files and reindex again.

SingleStore (formerly MemSQL)

  • It offers me solution to solve spark storage problem.
  • It adds more complexity of my application since multiple tech softwares are involved.
  • More types of bugs will be encountered when doing streamliner, including hardware connection.
