Overall Satisfaction with Couchbase

Couchbase is our favorite non-relational database when we implement Smart Cities projects in customer facilities. It is mainly used by the Development and Implementation team. It allows us to use large amounts of data thanks to its non-relational design, its high performance, and its JSON DB schema. In addition, its management is very simple and has great security.
  • Excellent performance with JSON storage
  • N1QL High Performance Query Language
  • Scalable database
  • No SQL schema, concept change
  • Documentation missing in Spanish
  • System administrator required
  • Cost reduction in hardware thanks to its speed
  • Less development time due to its N1QL language
  • Greater customer peace of mind with your security
Couchbase server performance in an environment with millions of data stored in its Non-relational schema is excellent. Queries are very fast thanks to the N1QL language and its layer system provides great flexibility for development and security (roles, permissions).
Our Smart Cities project developments are focused on the creation of Dashboards for web environments, so we have not yet used the Couchbase server within a mobile environment. We will try to use it in the future if any of our clients require it.
When you make dashboards with real-time data in which you are managing millions of records in historical data, you cannot use a traditional relational database scheme, so we decided to implement Couchbase technology and server in our company and our Smart projects and its performance has been excellent. The transition to the NoSQL schema has been easy, thanks to its N1QL query language.
Couchbase's server is more scalable than MongoDB, as MongoDB degrades its performance if the number of users grows. Also, Couchbase allows us to integrate more third-party applications, Couchbase’s query language extends ANSI SQL.
The Couchbase server allows developing Smart Cities applications with great agility and continuous delivery. Its performance is excellent compared to other non SQL alternatives like MongoDB. Its management and administration is simple for a Database administrator. In addition, it has its own query language called N1QL that allows non-SQL queries to be performed as if using a relational and SQL paradigm.
