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.

I plan to be using the enhanced version. I would definitely recommend this solution to anyone who is interested in using it. The enterprise version is a more stable version. The indexing is very powerful and the N1QL is especially useful when you come from an SQL background. It will be very powerful. This is why I would recommend Couchbase. To this point, I have never needed anything extra added to it. I am very happy with this solution, and I would rate Couchbase a nine out of ten.

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.

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.

I have tried multiple libraries in a demo they provide and it works fine, but when it merges with libraries, it creates a problem.

Most of the time, the only issued that I have faced was when we upgraded the Couchbase version. It is very difficult to load the backup of the older version to the newer version. The only problem with it, I mentioned, the loading data from a different version. For that, we use replication to solve the issue. This is the only bad issue we faced, otherwise it is perfect.
