Overall Satisfaction with Couchbase Data Platform

We are implementing Couchbase to improve performance for several applications in our datacenter.
  • Improved Performance
  • XDCR between locations
  • Ease of expanding the cluster size
  • At rest encryption
  • The ability to handle large data sets without the need for nodes that have huge amounts of memory.
  • The ease of deployment and scalability withing Couchbase has been a great asset to our teams, allowing us to deploy a solution in Couchbase in 20 mins.
  • We have yet to deploy an existing application into Couchbase, but hope to see massive performance improvements once we do so.
  • New deployments have gone smoothly as we have transitioned to using Couchbase for new product offerings.
Being able to add a new node on the fly is very handy and allows for growth which is just a few clicks away. The addition of new nodes to the cluster is seamless and quick and the ability to do this from a single UI makes for easy Administration of the product.
The performance of Couchbase ranks up at the highest I have seen with all the various applications we use.
We have not been able to utilize the capabilities of this design, but hope to do so in the future.
This is not something we have chosen to implement as of yet in our applications.
Cost and speed are some of the biggest concerns and the reason we chose to go with Couchbase.
Scaling and performance are the main benefits that I see from using Couchbase. It seems where speed is not necessary that another model would be preferable to have a hybrid between speed and the ability to store large amounts of data without the need for servers with a crazy amount of RAM or having to create 40-50 servers to accommodate the need.
