Overall Satisfaction with Cloudant

We are using Cloudant as storage for events data and logs for further analysis.
  • Scales well.
  • Full access via http is great!
  • I personally like replication to vanilla CouchDB to use it locally from time to time.
  • Downloading data from Cloudant is a pain. Feplication via http is slow.
  • I would add the ability to use external functions for Cloudant, as it's implemented in CouchDB.
Its fine to have a DB that scales well and does not need a strict scheme.
Cloudant just works, I don't need IT guys to look specifically after Cloundant.
It indeed saves time. Configured a couple of DB in a minute. There was only one occasion when data stopped writing to DB and I did not set some kind of notification for this.
Cloudant extends features of CouchDB, but you don't have to host it for yourself. IBM does this for you. Also Cloudant is free if you are under $50 per month. And there is integration with other IBM products, like dashDB (for analytics).Cloudant has CouchApps and it's a feature MongoDB does't have.
Visual Studio.NET
Cloudant is good for storage for unstructured data and documents. I use it as alternative storage of raw events data (in addition to Localytics etc).
