"The valuable features of Couchbase are the many documents and index types, and they made a lot of features available enabling us to use it as a complete solution for our needs.""The principal advantage of Couchbase is that we can have multiple database paradigms in the same product, without deploying multiple databases. We also like that it has lower latency, when compared to its competitor: Cassandra."

Cons
"The procedure for operations could be simplified.""This is a very expensive solution.""It would be useful if Cloudera had more tools like SQL Engines that offer the traditional relational database. We have to do a lot of work preparing the data outside Cloudera before getting it into the platform.""There are better solutions out there that have more features than this one.""The Cloudera training has deteriorated significantly.""The security of this solution could be improved. There should also be a way to basically have a blockchain enabled storage with the HDFS.""It could be faster and more user-friendly.""Cloudera Distribution for Hadoop has a limited feature list and a lot of costs involved."

"We would like to have a better management of Kubernetes with the free, open source version of Couchbase. We don't have any major complaints other than that.""There are some limitations to the database. The SQL database cannot handle real-time processing for critical IoT scenarios. What we have to do is store our data into the database then code it out, this wastes a lot of time."
