Overall Satisfaction with Couchbase

Couchbase was used to allow us to dramatically increase system performance across all of our products and services by allowing us quicker access to large volumes of data and providing us with greater stability and reliability thanks to the cluster and replication methodology. Our data sets are often not particularly large pieces of information, but very many pieces. Traditional databases did not perform adequately under these conditions, which is where Couchbase came in.
  • Improved system stability
  • Improved system reliability and service uptime
  • Fast response to queries
  • Improved performance of synchronous queries
  • Licensing should separate out product and support.
  • Early versions were hard to integrate.
  • Improvements to maintenance functions to minimize downtime
  • Faster transaction speed
  • Improved product reliability
  • Simpler product development
At the time, Couchbase seemed the most mature of the NoSQL products and would allow us to achieve the goal of improving data access times for our products and services, giving the most benefit to our customers. MySQL was starting to be the bottleneck in our system performance and necessitated the switch.

Do you think Couchbase Server delivers good value for the price?


Are you happy with Couchbase Server's feature set?


Did Couchbase Server live up to sales and marketing promises?


Did implementation of Couchbase Server go as expected?


Would you buy Couchbase Server again?


Couchbase is excellent if you have datasets comprising lots and lots of tiny pieces of information, but is unlikely to be as useful in scenarios where a traditional relational database would work well. Be prepared to budget accordingly as the licensing and computing power required for adequate availability can be considerable.

Couchbase Reliability

One of Couchbase’s greatest assets is its performance with large datasets. Properly set up with well-sized clusters, it is also highly reliable and scalable. User management could be better though, and security often feels like an afterthought. Couchbase has improved tremendously since we started using it, so I am sure that these issues will be ironed out.
