Pros and Cons

  • The SDK was easy integrated with .NET.
  • Peer to peer to cloud syncing for mobile using the Synch Gateway service was amazing.
  • We can use community release for our project.
  • Index and view are increased rapidly and spent 240 GB on the server storage.
  • Every bug fix and patch was not set to the current version but the latest version, whereas we have to reinstall if any patches, it was time-consuming and not worth it.
  • Backup and restore is time consuming.

Pros and Cons

  • Key value access is super fast.
  • NoSQL is particularly useful when you have a SQL background.
  • .Net client works like a charm and is well maintained.
  • With NoSQL, you kind of have a vendor locked in.
  • When something goes wrong, rarely, it's sometimes hard to find the culprit using the statistics.
  • We feel we are missing some features by using the community edition, but we survive.

Pros and Cons

  • Management of nodes is simple and requires minimal maintenance.
  • The ability to query is flexible and the N1QL language is convenient, though it can have pitfalls.
  • Replication provides great data resiliency, as well as speed and performance on a global scale.
  • At large query volume, it can be difficult to scale. This is mostly due to user error, but the flexibility afforded makes these issues easy to slip through.
  • The N1QL language, while convenient, obscures powerful features and hinders in-depth learning of the NoSQL principles.
  • Couchbase is self-hosted, and as such, it required internal DevOps resources to maintain.

Pros and Cons

  • Single and multi-record lookups are extremely fast.
  • N!QL lets SQL programmers get up and running quickly without having to learn a new way of thinking.
  • Full-text search, still basic but becoming more useful.
  • Management UI is awesome providing a useful dashboard for determining the health of your cluster.
  • Rolling updates just work.
  • Full text search is very basic and fairly limited throwing errors at times that are difficult to understand or resolve.
  • .NET SDK has not always been compatible with the latest server version.
