Couchbase headquartered in Mountain View, California offers the Couchbase Server, a NoSQL database. Server - full of useful features, despite difficult to navigate documentationAs a consultant, I stay up to date on the latest Couchbase Server news and features. By my organization, it is strictly being evaluated as a arguably better NoSQL database alternative to MongoDB. As a consultant at Avalon Consulting, LLC., I helped implement 2 benchmarks comparing the major Couchbase releases of 4.0 and 4.5, which introduced the new N1QL functionality.,Scaling - By adding more hardware to the Couchbase Server cluster, one can quickly benefit from the overall increase in performance of the system Mobile Synchronization - As a mobile developer, keeping data in sync between an embedded SQLite database and a RDBMS system takes more effort and thought than necessary and reduces time spent developing the rest of the application. Couchbase Server paired with the Sync Gateway and Couchbase Mobile significantly simplifies those transactions. Hands-on documentation via Classes, Seminars, and Tutorials - The free videos on Couchbase's YouTube channel and the courses and seminars that are offered cover much of the basics needed to understand how to quickly get started with Couchbase Server and the features it provides. No enforced schema policy - While this is true of most NoSQL technologies, the main benefit that I see Couchbase has is that they have recommended patterns for designing stored data.,Written documentation - Overall, navigating the documentation site is difficult. There have been several times when I try to search for something and find outdated code references or articles.,9,As a Consultant, one needs to stay up-to-date on latest news in their industry and be ready to support breaking features and discuss ideas related to implementation. Couchbase provides many resources to assist people get up and running with Couchbase Server,MongoDB,Apache Spark, Elasticsearch, Ansible,8Couchbase Is the Simple but Effective SolutionIt was used in the engineering department. We used it as a centralized cache for key-value pairs, for our systems to perform large amounts of lookups. We have a cluster of Couchbase Servers, and mostly we are used the in-memory cache.,The Couchbase cluster was very stable. We almost never needed any maintenance work for the cluster. The throughput was excellent. We started with just a 5-node cluster, and it sustained 700K/sec lookup operations for extended period of time. Later we upgraded to a 20-node cluster, it was able to take 1.2 million read/write operations. That's probably the limit of our client application. Very easy on admin side.,Based on our use case, we don't have anything in particular that's not satisfactory.,The main impression we had from using Couchbase cluster on our production environment is how stable it is. While other systems might have issues occasionally and require an on-call team, our Couchbase cluster never had any issues. Other things include: its performance, ease to use, and good support.,9,Good support/customer servvice Increased production on time,Redis Cloud,Apache Spark, MapR, Apache Hive,9Couchbase Review[I've] used couchbase server for a session based database as well as storing some of the meta info we had for our analytical end of the database.,Performance, it is way better than Mongo Ease of maintanence. Reduced factor in tryng to resolve issues. Scales easily and quickly. HA across DCs is really needed, which was provided.,Reduction in pricing Slightly better documentation Allow community to submit/commit,The UI every now and then wonks out. But fortunately, CLI still holds true.,7,Pricing caused us to bypass this as a result. If THE pricing model was reduced, think we would have fully implemented into production environment.,mongodb, cassandra and aerospike,HBase, PostgreSQL, MariaDB, Apache Drill, Apache Spark,2

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.
