  • Price: With an internal development and support team, the cost of downloading, installing and configuring is very much cheaper than other, mainstream solutions.
  • Speed of development: Getting Data into and out of this database is a breeze.
  • Simplicity: understanding the mechanics of database management is very easy. If you understand JSON, then you can understand CouchDB in a few hours.

CouchDB for analytics

  • Faster development. Since it's a schemaless system, it's easy to add new fields and change the data model, so long as views stay the same.
  • Lower cost of ownership. Unlike paid systems, CouchDB is totally free and supported by the Apache Foundation. The only thing you need to pay for is the hardware it runs on.
  • Easier integration with other services. CouchDB uses a HTTP API for everything, and since nearly all languages have well maintained HTTP libraries, it's easy to connect them to the database.

  • Biggest impact on our business has been that CouchDB has been pretty invisible from a cost or issues perspective. It just works.
  • We use the Apache releases, so it's free. Of course there is a cost to "free" - we have invested time to become fluent in using and understanding CouchDB. But we feel the investment was well worth the effort and we have a solid, fundamental technology to our products that "just works".
  • There are some things we do - SaaS vs self-hosting - that have probably been kept simple by using CouchDB. Overall, we are extremely happy with CouchDB.

  • Positively, it's a data store that requires a minor setup process and data can be viewed inside the browser.
  • It's also free and open source, so no extra products needed to get the stack set up.
  • Negatively, due to majorly lacking search capabilities, our customer support teams needed a separate solution that rides on top of the CouchDB API to be able to search and view customers' records and activities.
