Overall Satisfaction with IBM Cloudant

I'm using Cloudant as a persistent backend to a web app that leverages PouchDB. It is easy to query and seamlessly synchronizes the app data to the cloud.
  • Easy to configure and operate through the GUI.
  • Seamless replication to CouchDB (like PouchDB).
  • The multi-tentant option is free for low utilization (HTTP requests and storage).
  • Instant database compaction on multi-tenant.
Easier to use, install and configure.
Cloudant is easy to use and has a high adherence to CouchDB-like databases, which is awesome for those moving into the NoSQL space.

IBM Cloud Support and Implementation

Implementation was easy as the menus are pretty straightforward. I was able to quickly setup replication to my CouchDB instance and see the data flowing into Cloudant in a matter of minutes. The system is reliable and I was able to connect to it easily from my Javascript source code.
Basic (free) - Right now I'm just trying out the solution, so no need for an expanded support level.
  • Central Documentation and Learning Hub
  • Access to IBM and Developer communities through Stack Overflow or GitHub
Nice interface, easy to use, easy to interact through API.

IBM Cloudant Reliability

It was built to be scalable, so it couldn't get any better on this.
