Overall Satisfaction with Couchbase Data Platform

Couchbase is currently being used as a part of our mobile stack, specifically for the Sync Gateway capabilities. It allows for easy management of data state and for push/pull of updates, The built-in XDCR capabilities allow us to migrate data easily from one server cluster to another easily when needed. The NoSQL format allows us to massage our data into a much more consumable and lighter weight format, increasing sync performance.
  • Easy sync protocol to mobile devices, the minimal code needed to pull data down to a device.
  • Powerful indexing that can be as simple or as complex as you need, allowing for quick lookups for commonly used data sets.
  • Great analytics present in the server dashboard that allows you a great top-down view of system usage, resources, etc.
  • Bit of a steep learning curve to get a cluster set up, especially with sync gateway.
  • Easy to scale up/down server clusters.
  • Zero downtime upgrades/migrations.
Data that is highly flexible and not necessarily formatted to a specific standard is great in the Couchbase platform. The JSON based structure of the documents allows for easy addition/removal of fields from a document as well as no migration headaches.
