Use Cases and Deployment Scope

We used Couchbase on an important project named Phantom for customer and merchant referential. We are happy because this tool compiled our expectations and now we have an excellent non-SQL database. It was relatively simple to work with, the included groovy JDK seemed decently documented and wasn't a pain to work with. It was missing some key features (batch gets), however, so we had to write a service on top of their JDK.

Use Cases and Deployment Scope

It is frequently used by my whole organization. Couchbase is an interesting application for the management of document databases at one single location. Moreover, I use this software as an alternative to No SQL database management. Apart from this, it has an open way to my scalable application. Furthermore, it has a perfect GUI that is effective enough to make all the right decisions. Another thing that I prefer in it is the ease of implementation and configuration.

Use Cases and Deployment Scope

In order to facilitate multi-site replication of key-value data and act as a caching layer for our source of truth databases (PostgreSQL), we decided to give Couchbase a shot, and we have not been disappointed. It made multi-site bi-directional replication of data a breeze for small and large data sets.

Currently I am evaluating its use for the primary purpose of being the primary data store behind a series of microservices. These will in turn be used to synchronize to a large number of mobile users.

Smart cities need to respond to millions of operations performed by concurrent users and they need to do it quickly, therefore, Couchbase, as a NoSQL and distributed database, allows the IT area to offer performance and flexibility to our customers.

In our organization, we have multiple projects based on Smart Cities. These projects have a lot of data and in formats such as JSON. Couchbase is a database and non-relational engine that allows great performance with this type of data.

Use Cases and Deployment Scope

Within our Smart Cities projects, we need to use relational and non-relational databases. One of the non-relational databases that we manage within the IT department is Couchbase, a very scalable and easy to manage database. You can use SQL for JSON, which makes it very intuitive. This data is used for operations with big data tools such as Hadoop.

Use Cases and Deployment Scope

Couchbase is being used to serve down data to our mobile apps across the entire organization as a revamp to our legacy database (PSQL). A common problem we have had is that some of our SaaS clients have very flexible data schemas that are difficult to adhere to in a relational database, and a NoSQL solution is a much better fit.

Use Cases and Deployment Scope

Couchbase is being used as our player database for all of our games at Jam City. It serves as a fast and reliable way to store our players game state data and allow our features and services to leverage it. We also utilize 2 Couchbase clusters. One as primary and a second as a replica of that primary. A S3 snapshot backup is also stored daily from the replica. We run the 2 clusters on identical 14 node AWS linux 2 i3.metal machines.

Use Cases and Deployment Scope

We use Couchbase to support our online and mobile social casino games backend. In addition to a faster access to relational data, we use Couchbase for low latency large multiplayer gaming engines, where ephemeral data gets stored and distributed amongst many clients at once as they play and compete against each other in multiple games and competitions.

Use Cases and Deployment Scope

Couchbase is being used as a NoSQL database in the organization for unstructured data, big data, and streaming data. Since we are in the medical device/bio-pharma sectors, we get a lot of unstructured data including data from sensors installed in the equipment that help us monitor the health/performance of the equipment as well as doing parts replacement/predictive/preventive maintenance on a regular basis.

Couchbase is now our first choice for NoSQL for many teams/groups/departments in Western Union. It serves a purpose for a quick and easy transition from old expensive RMDS databases to the new generation of cloud NoSQL storage.

Couchbase is being used in our web site. It is the main caching system and we use it for shared sessions across the cluster.

It is being used for all layers of our website, and by several other support systems, again mainly as a fast caching system across multiple servers in a cluster.

We are using Couchbase as a backup for my JSON documents saved by Apache Nifi. This process, in the future, can move us to use a bi-directional replication feature between our companies.

Use Cases and Deployment Scope

We were looking for a non-relational database to handle multiple records for different customers across a platform we were designing. In addition to that, we need a real-time sync and cache tool in case there was a connection loss the overall application function would continue to operate and they sync upon availability.

Use Cases and Deployment Scope

Our organization has started using Couchbase. We have built our custom implementation for accessing Couchbase buckets. Some teams have already moved from Oracle to Couchbase, and we have seen good profits in the annual report. Many teams are making the move. Although many are transitioning to Couchbase, the majority of our teams are using Oracle, due to our clientele.
Couchbase makes business easy and simple. Since Couchbase uses NoSQL, it's very flexible and versatile to create and maintain documents where our clients require change over time. It`s extremely handy to modify the documents on the go. With no specific schema, we can work with different types of data with varying lengths. Seeking and accessing data takes less time compared to traditional RDBMS.
But Couchbase does introduce a few problems. Since schema is absent, there are no validations on the data. Triggering data inserts/updates needs to be handled separately. Short procedures have now become lengthy java classes. Unnesting and accessing elements of the array takes forever, and it usually fails with a timeout.
Considering the pros and cons, moving to Couchbase is a good decision for mobile and web developers, and for new companies.
