The following are scenarios where Couchbase is very well suited:
* Projects where scalability horizontally is a top priority
* Projects where a dedicated team exists that is able to set up, use, maintain and support the database

The following are scenarios where Couchbase is not well suited:
* Projects with new teams or inexperienced teams where upskilling and training will be needed

Couchbase works well, but isn't the only option

Couchbase is well suited for global deployments. It also works well in a variety of cloud or on-premise environments. This flexibility makes it a great product that can be used almost anywhere. If you only use a single cloud provider or don't have any capacity to maintain a database, then choosing the NoSQL flavor of your provider might provide a better experience.

Couchbase, the right tool for the job.

Couchbase is ideal for situations where you store JSON objects that you usually retrieve using a unique key, speed and reliability in this area is supreme. With N!QL it is also a great replacement for situations where you would use SQL. With that said however, it is not a good fit for situations where you need strong ACID properties. It is an eventually consistent system and with a lot of transactions happening it can take it awhile for an index to catch up. You can usually work around those issues but it does require extra work.

According to my experience, Couchbase is well-suited for mobile application developments as a NoSQL database. Also, this Couchbase database server can be used for Enterprise business applications as a backend database.

These days businesses are adopting large scale web applications and mobile applications for serving customers better. Traditional RDBMS databases cannot serve those demanding requests. But Couchbase is adapting high-performing databases for those kinds of demanding applications.

Couchbase: Data synchronization made simple

Score 10 out of 10
Vetted Review
Verified User
Review Source

Likelihood to Recommend

Couchbase synchronization works like a charm in an online/offline mobile app scenario. Querying is flexible enough and the functionalities associated with Couchbase server allow its usage for developing detailed close to real-time operation support systems. It is not a good solution for keeping large datasets for auditing considering Couchbase memory capabilities (cost was prohibitive). In-depth knowledge was necessary to fine-tune the data model. Couchbase also doesn't provide triggers. Events capabilities provide some support but still lack control.

Good NoSQL Database (with some SQL still inside)

Score 9 out of 10
Vetted Review

Likelihood to Recommend

Couchbase is well suited to a fast distributed Key Value store with a light need of SQL-like language for access. Below 5 minutes response time is usual for KV access, nearly impossible for SQL/HTTP call in our systems. It saves us.

The Couchbase server allows developing Smart Cities applications with great agility and continuous delivery. Its performance is excellent compared to other non SQL alternatives like MongoDB. Its management and administration is simple for a Database administrator. In addition, it has its own query language called N1QL that allows non-SQL queries to be performed as if using a relational and SQL paradigm.

Couchbase as a technical enabler for delocalized and unstructured large-scale systems

Likelihood to Recommend

I find Couchbase to be a very suitable solution where you have to deal with both online and offline scenarios, leveraging on Couchbase LITE and Couchbase server alternatives. Moreover, Couchbase is a great alternative when dealing with large data volumes in a segregated architecture, enabling different business models and capabilities compared to competitors.

Couchbase is well suited for any environment where you need metadata stored reliably, and with quick access. I wouldn't recommend storing larger files on it.

Couchbase is great but expensive

Score 7 out of 10
Vetted Review
Verified User
Review Source

Likelihood to Recommend

Obviously, it's not well suited for anything transactional. It's also not greatly suited for upgrades or patches without turning off auto-failover. It is well suited for metadata databases and front end fast data retrieval.
It is relatively easy to deploy without training but not intuitive enough to set it up with best practices without pretty good working knowledge of the DB and all its settings and terminology.

Couchbase allows us to start quickly new development phase but later on you discover some limitations that you need to invest more on your application design, but the product remains a good choice for the moment.

Couchbase is okay for big web companies with a lot of requests and where speed and replication are a priority. It has a lot of features, Key-Value, N1SQL, Full-Text Search, Analytics, Dashboards, etc.
Couchbase requires an initial learning curve and adaptation of developments as it is a non-standard proprietary technology. I only recommend it in custom developments.

Key-value and document database using Couchbase

Score 10 out of 10
Vetted Review

Review Source

Likelihood to Recommend

The perfect scenario is when you need to store a lot of data and you need excellent performance in reads and writes at the same time. It's possible when using a non-SQL database. Another idea is always work in the active-active mode because you can warranty your system never fails in the database layer.

I'm having a great experience. I can say that this particular application is making my databases more secure and safe in one place. Apart from this, it has few features that are efficient enough to maintain workflow in a steady and flexible way. It can be perfectly used by any organization.
