    Stable cloud database that offers lower latency and good caching
    Pros and Cons
    • "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."
    • "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."

    What is our primary use case?

    We're using Couchbase for general purposes and for caching.

    What is most valuable?

    The principal advantage of Couchbase for us 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.

    What needs improvement?

    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.

    For how long have I used the solution?

    We've been dealing with Couchbase just very recently, approximately two months now.

    What do I think about the stability of the solution?

    Couchbase seems to be a stable product.

    What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

    Couchbase does have an open source version, but it has some problems for deploying in Kubernetes, so we are thinking of going with the commercial version. We estimate that it's not very expensive, however, the pricing that you can get from the account managers, e.g. the public pricing, is a bit expensive.

    Which other solutions did I evaluate?

    We were able to evaluate Cassandra. When comparing the two: Couchbase is more general purpose, and it has a smaller latency, while Cassandra is easier to manage with the open source version in cluster environments.

    What other advice do I have?

    We have only tested deployment for Couchbase. It's just in POC, so it's still too early to tell if the deployment is easy or complex, until we have deployed it in a production environment. It's currently not deployed fully.

    We hope that Couchbase is scalable, as there are some studies that we have seen that mention its scalability, but as it's only in POC now, it's still difficult to know for sure.

    We have not interacted with technical support yet, so I'm not able to give an evaluation for Couchbase support.

    For now, I cannot say if I would recommend this product to others. It's still too early, e.g. it's better if we use it for more months, so we can have more information about it.

    I'm rating Couchbase nine out of ten. I didn't give it a perfect score because the implementation schemas need to be improved, and we don't have much data currently.

    Responsive technical support, thorough documentation, and reliable
    Pros and Cons
    • "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."
    • "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."

    What is our primary use case?

    In our current project, we use this solution in the healthcare field for the telemedical industry and in other projects in the automation industry.

    What is most valuable?

    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.

    What needs improvement?

    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.

    For how long have I used the solution?

    We have recently started using the solution.

    What do I think about the stability of the solution?

    The solution has been reliable and stable.

    What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

    We have not attempted to scale the solution at this time because we are a large company that needs more security. We are in the early stages of integrating DTS technology, our chosen security solution, once implemented we will begin scaling Couchbase.

    How are customer service and technical support?

    The technical support has been responsive and they provide good support.

    How was the initial setup?

    The installation could be difficult for some engineers that are brand new to the implementation because the reference documents are much harder to find than other solutions, such as MongoDB.

    What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

    For the cloud-based solution, there are a number of options available when it comes to the frequency of license payments. You can purchase a license monthly, quarterly, and annually. Since our project includes IoT from another solution this pricing model could be complicated for us.

    The price of this solution is better than some of the other competitors.

    Which other solutions did I evaluate?

    I have evaluated MongoDB and it is lacking some features that Couchbase has making it a complete solution. With MongoDB, we would need another solution to work alongside it to function the same as Couchbase.

    What other advice do I have?

    I would recommend this solution to others.

    I rate Couchbasean eight out of ten.
