Overall Satisfaction with Couchbase

We're using couchbase to gather Infra health, stats for near real time analytics, to make decisions to scale out or up the Infra.
We have more than 40K servers in our Infra, both virtual and physical. We've historically had slow processes, to reading performance statistics from each of them and analyzing them. Before we could react to a need for server upscale, an incident would have happened. This is where we tried other solutions and are currently using Couchbase. We are able to load vast amount of data every second and come up with near real time decisions.
  • Key-value storage.
  • N1QL is easy, comprehensive and fast.
  • Scalable across datacenters.
  • Integration with Elasticsearch.
  • Inconsistent memory, CPU consumption pattern.
  • Still evaluating and optimizing our deployment.
  • We're still using Community EDN.
We are building long time data storage and analytical purpose application for internal use only.
No, we are not planning mobile. If what we are implementing right now becomes a major success and adopted widely, we may look at mobilising the solution, but we are looking at 1.5 to 2 years from now.
A strategic company, upcoming products, enhanced concepts. Couchbase is a single platform offering many different smaller products together viz Full-Text Search, Analytics, Eventing, Indexing, Querying, Integration with other products.
I also look forward to knowing more about Couchbase Cloud and how cost effective, performance intensive it could be to load all TB of data in the cloud.

Do you think Couchbase delivers good value for the price?

Not sure

Are you happy with Couchbase's feature set?

Yes

Did Couchbase live up to sales and marketing promises?

I wasn't involved with the selection/purchase process

Did implementation of Couchbase go as expected?

I wasn't involved with the implementation phase

Would you buy Couchbase again?

Yes

I haven't had many opportunities to request support, I will look forward to better the rating. We have technical development and integration team who reach out directly to TAM at Couchbase.
Couchbase has been quite a usable for our implementation. We had similar experience with our previous "trial" implementation, however it was short lived.
Couchbase has so far exceeded expectation. Our implementation team is more confident than ever before.
When we are Live for more than 6 months, I'm hoping to enhance this rating.
A less appropriate scenario would be that - I still can't imagine how this will work in OLTP environment where real time transaction processing & responses are needed. This may be attributed by my limited knowledge, also because our scenario doesn't involve real time processing. For real time analysis we are satisfied.
