Key-value and document database using Couchbase

Score 10 out of 10
Vetted Review
Verified User
Review Source

Pros and Cons

  • You can use Couchbase in numerous ways, such as key-value and document storage.
  • Installation is easy and replication is very good.
  • Very fast reads.
  • Fail-over configuration is very easy to setup. There is too much documentation about this.
  • Everything is working fine. We created 5 environments (DEV,QA,UAT,PRE-PROD,PROD).
  • The user manual is not easy to understand. Almost all of the documentation is in English.
  • You can only put text files that are JSON formatted. No XML support.

Couchbase is a pleasure to use and is recommended

Score 7 out of 10
Vetted Review
Verified User
Review Source

Pros and Cons

  • Performance of Couchbase is great
  • The simplicity of using Couchbase is a major benefit with support for standards like JSON, and its handling of attachments makes it simple to adapt in web-based projects.
  • If it had a smaller footprint that would make for easier deployment to multiple devices. This is especially true when compared to other solutions.
  • More involvement in the open source community to promote out-of-the-box integration/support in popular frameworks.

Pros and Cons

  • Many possibilities with SQL for JSON database
  • Scalability and guaranteed performance
  • There are strong competitors like MongoDB
  • If you don't know how to use non-relational databases, you'd be better off using Oracle, MySQL, etc.

Couchbase for Mobile Gaming

Score 8 out of 10

Pros and Cons

  • Customer response time
  • Solid UI/UX for monitoring our data and vitals of the cluster
  • Ease of mind with auto failovers for bad machines and simple swap/rebalance options
  • The main downside is the same with any managed product. We sometimes want to have changes or updates to couchbase but need to wait for a new release version or some patch fix.

Quick, reliable, and easy to work with. Couchbase has a bright future ahead of it.

Score 10 out of 10

Pros and Cons

  • Couchbase is easy to set up in the cloud or on the on-premise servers. Within minutes you can get yourself a database that will cheap, conveniently accessed, and highly available. More than that - it'll retain the way to query it like a traditional RDMS.
  • Couchbase is easy to maintain because high availability is one of its main features. You can build your Couchbase cluster on, say, 10 virtual boxes in the cloud, and have all the work on the database side done without any interruption to your applications.
  • Couchbase has great customer support. They are always ready to help when you face a problem. Tickets opened easily and get a quick response on support.couchbase.com. Documentation is awesome.
  • N1QL query language (very close to a standard SQL) is great when your application cannot rely entirely on key-value gets. This makes it easy to convert the tables of legacy RDMS and applications accessing it to the new generation of apps-database combo.
  • General recommendation from Couchbase would be to have RAM on servers big enough to fit 20-25% of a dataset. This is promised to be driven down to just single percents with release 6.5 in summer of 2019. This can drive the cost of underlying servers dramatically for huge TB databases.
  • Indexes are tied to specific servers. It'll be nice at some point to have them spread across all index nodes and be able to rebalance indexes the same way as data itself.

Our experience with Couchbase

Score 5 out of 10
Vetted Review
Verified User
Review Source

Pros and Cons

  • Reliability: rarely goes down.
  • Supporting legacy DB applications: Putting Couch in front of slow running applications seems to be a good fit.
  • SDK: Documentation could be better. Questionable decision making in terms of how things work.
  • Speed: It's being used for our caching solution, however, nobody probably should do this. Far better platforms that handle caching better.
  • Community: Can be frustrating trying to solve problems seems the community and gender issues vary depending on the version.
  • Tuning/troubleshooting tools: Improvement should happen in this area.
  • Adoption: Small compared to other noSQL solutions.

Simple, Flexible, Powerful

Pros and Cons

  • Schema-free. Today's changing demands in mobile and web development is well suited with the free document structure that Couchbase offers.
  • Snappy results. Couchbase is faster than traditional RDBMS.
  • Couchbase supports ACID “transactions” on a per-document level.
  • Could benefit from triggers during transactions, so that the other documents get updated automatically, or to execute a particular logic.
  • Schema type validation on individual fields, whilst providing a schema-free document structure, would be great.
