Overall Satisfaction with IBM Cloudant

We use cloudant as trustable path for a project associated with the Internet of Things. We control assets via a sensor and collect information about the gps position, their visibility and the time it has being registered. We save that in a local CouchDB database and use cloudant to replicate that information in a secure way.
  • Documentation. You really do well in that.
  • Reliability. We think IBM cloudant makes us feel secure with our data, we manage sensible information that we don't want to be open to the world.
  • Time. Everything can be done quickly. No too many configuration steps. The Cloudant API just works
  • Lack of a local version. We have to use alternatives as CouchDB or pouchdb.
  • The integration with other nosql databases should be easier.
  • Official wrappers for languages like python. That would be very useful.
I think they are very similar. We would like to have local versions of cloudant to have a better integration.
I think that cloudant is appropriate everywhere you need to handle big quantities of data, and the confidentiality of that data is really important, and you need to keep the data organized with respect to several intricate variables. It would not be appropriate for small projects, or perhaps for projects were internet connectivity is an issue.

No SQL Capabilities

We don't have theoretical limits in the quantity of assets we want to track. We love the notion of revision of documents. We make constant modification to static documents and the capacity for a document to keep track of the revisions, even large quantities of them is a plus for us.
