We performed a comparison between Couchbase and MongoDB based on real PeerSpot user reviews.Find out in this report how the two NoSQL Databases solutions compare in terms of features, pricing, service and support, easy of deployment, and ROI.
"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."
"It is really a pretty easy product to use. It's very reliable, it's proven."
"The most valuable feature of MongoDB is the NoSQL database. In a SQL database, we need to join data together with a unique ID amongst other things, but in MongoDB, it's not required. We can directly receive all the information. The performance is very good. Additionally, they have frequent updates."
"We find the query and speed very valuable."
"We've found the product to be scalable."
"I value the API integrations."
"One of the most valuable features is the ability to Text Search can be used anywhere and anytime."
"MongoDB is cool. There is a difference between relational databases and newer databases like MongoDB. MongoDB is scalable and fast."
"In our case, it is most important to have redundancy."
"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."
"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."
"MongoDB is a very useful and convenient choice, but sometimes for more complex projects, there are certain niche requirements that appear, so using a different tool could be beneficial. It raises the complexity of the architecture, but it could be beneficial to the world, the features, the ease of the features which are being implemented."
"I rate the support from MongoDB a four out of five."
"I would like to see the scalability and security improved."
"I suppose it could be a little more secure."
"It could be much more flexible like SequoiaDB. I would like to see more flexibility in the next release, especially when working with Microsoft Windows. A lot of people struggle with MongoDB because of their Windows versions. But Linux is faultless and mostly runs nicely."
"The auto transaction feature is something that I found a little bit problematic. If we want to run two or three transactions at a time, we get write conflicts. So, it becomes really difficult when concurrency comes into the picture."
"MongoDB can improve large-size video or media frame operations. There are a lot of customers who want to upload media frames and video games but there is some difficulty. In MongoDB, we are looking out for solutions that are for large-size media files that can be saved and navigated efficiently."
"Lacks sufficient scalability and elasticity."
At Couchbase, we believe data is at the heart of the enterprise. We empower developers and architects to build, deploy, and run their most mission-critical applications. Couchbase delivers a high-performance, flexible and scalable modern database that runs across the data center and any cloud. Many of the world’s largest enterprises rely on Couchbase to power the core applications their businesses depend on.
MongoDB is a popular data management solution with a NoSQL database that enables you to store and process structured and semi-structured data with ease. The solution is scalable and flexible, and is designed to overcome the relational databases approach and the limitations of other NoSQL solutions. In addition, MongoDB stands apart as the cloud database platform of choice for enterprise applications that require real-time analytics.
MongoDB has many valuable key features. Some of the most useful ones include:
There are many benefits to implementing MongoDB. Some of the biggest advantages the solution offers include:
Reviews from Real Users
Below are some reviews and helpful feedback written by PeerSpot users currently using the MongoDB solution.
PeerSpot user Deepak K., Managing Director at SimSol Technologies And Services Pvt Ltd., says, “The solution is a very dynamic product. It becomes extremely easy for us to support user requirements and we also make use of the simplicity of a cloud redeployment.” He goes on to add, “The solution is easy to deploy, and the product can scale quite well. The solution's most important aspect is its seamless database. The solution offers excellent documentation.”
A Senior Associate at a financial services firm mentions, “The most valuable feature of the solution is the ability to easily store documentation regarding structures. We can easily connect to MongoDB and search without transformation, without joining. If we want to use a simple search it's really fast. The initial setup isn't really that complex. The solution is pretty stable overall.”
