Overall Satisfaction with Couchbase

Couchbase is used to maintain a huge dataset of metadata from multiple software components in our organization. It's unique feature that support seamless cross data centre replication coupled with its resiliency and redundancy features makes it first choice for our business use case. It is one of the few databases used across our organization.
  • Cross Data-centre replication (XDCR).
  • Improved performance.
  • Scalable.
  • Redundancy.
  • High availability.
  • Not many code examples given with SDK documentation, they seem beginner level.
  • Error logs are mostly not useful/straightforward, need to spend time and look around to understand the problem.
  • Community base is limited, so help from the forums like stack overflow, etc. is not that great, at least for older versions I have seen it.
  • Ability to support [a] huge number of transaction[s] during peak time[s] of the software usage by the end users.
  • Improved performance thereby speedy relaying the needed information to the UI of the end users.
  • Hardware consolidation, better data availability.
Once the index is built up, indexing as the new docs are inserted [which] is very fast even when rate[s] are like 50K/sec on 5 node clusters, [are] unparalleled.
Performance-wise Couchbase is much better than MongoDB.

Would you buy Couchbase Server again?


[Couchbase is a] high performing database with [a] huge dataset, its query, rw performance and resiliency is unmatched. Indexes are well created to serve the queries, it's fast. Scenarios where the replication is needed between totally different data centers, I would definitely recommend. Probably not suited for projects with quick setup and with minimum data set as the learning curve is steep to work with this database.
