We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"The most valuable feature is Impala, the querying engine, which is very fast."
"We also really like the Cloudera community. You can have any question and will have your answer within a few hours."
"The most valuable feature is Kubernetes."
"The main advantage is the storage is less expensive."
"The product as a whole is good."
"I don't see any performance issues."
"The most valuable features are the ease of application and the merging of data."
"I have found the views to be very 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."
"There is a maximum of a one-gigabyte block size, which is an area of storage that can be improved upon."
"Without the big data environment, we cannot store all of this data live. We have billions of records and terabytes of storage to be used. It's not an option actually for us to have a big data environment."
"The price of this solution could be lowered."
"Currently, we are using many other tools such as Spark and Blade Job to improve the performance."
"There are better solutions out there that have more features than this one."
"It could be faster and more user-friendly."
"I have tried multiple libraries in a demo they provide and it works fine, but when it merges with libraries, it creates a problem."
"It is very difficult to load the backup of the older version to the newer version."
"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."
"When comparing with Oracle Sybase and SQL, it's cheaper. It's not expensive."
"The price could be better for the product."
"The price of this solution is better than some of the other competitors."
Couchbase Server is a NoSQL database, which has become the de facto standard for building Systems of Engagement. It is designed with a distributed architecture for performance, scalability, and availability. It enables developers to build applications easier and faster by leveraging the power of SQL with the flexibility of JSON.
The new string, date, array, and JSON object functions that have been added to N1QL simplify data transformations and provide richer query expressions.
Faster queries in N1QL are the result of several query engine performance enhancements across many types of operations, including joins and index scans.
The most innovative enterprises are introducing NoSQL to replace or augment legacy databases, including Oracle and Microsoft SQL Server. With Couchbase Server, they get the best of both worlds – the powerful querying and enterprise features of a relational database, combined with the scalability, performance, and flexibility of a NoSQL database.
To make the transition easier, Couchbase Server provides many of the same features found in relational databases.
