Overall Satisfaction with IBM Cloudant

IBM Cloudant is used to have a central repository of clients' databases to which information generated in different branches that have local Couchdb deployments arrivals. In this way, we manage to have the data synchronized in all of them through continuous replication.
  • The response time for bi-directional syncs with the Couchdb engine is excellent.
  • The statistics provided by Cloudant allow us to make decisions about the implementation of new features or improvements over existing ones in future versions of our software, allowing us to continuously optimize processes.
  • Improvement in the documentation of some client libraries, such as the Cloudant library for Java.
  • Since we have used Cloudant, we have increased our profit by 30% in this line of business, since the time and resources we invested in maintaining our own database implementation as a central repository has been used to serve a greater number of clients. Our projection is a growth of 35% thanks to the fact that we have Cloudant as the strategic platform for this growth.
Considerable time savings have been achieved, and that time and the human resources that manage it have been turned to the attention of new services within the business line, which has resulted in an increase in our profits.
The bidirectional replication of local environments from CouchDB to Cloudant is what has improved our operations since we have the self-administration of the Cloudant environment at our disposal and we avoid the problems that come with managing a proprietary platform of that type.
The deployments carried out so far have been within our region, Peru. We have not yet had a chance to test larger-scale deployments.
  • IBM Cloud Functions
  • IBM Cloudant
  • IBM API Connect
The gap that we wanted to cover was to deploy a self-managed CouchDB environment, which would allow us the bidirectional replication of Databases through several physical locations of the same client. IBM Cloudant was the best choice after evaluating some other platforms with similar solutions.
The deployment for bidirectional replications in the database through Cloudant is the scenario that we have used the most and with which we are very satisfied.
