We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

"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."

More Couchbase Pros »

"The solution is very powerful.""The most valuable features are aggregating the data and integration with Graphana for monitoring."

More InfluxDB Pros »

"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."

More Couchbase Cons »

"The solution doesn't have much of a user interface.""The error logging capability can be improved because the logs are not very informative."

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.

InfluxData delivers a modern open source platform built from the ground up for metrics and events (time-sensitive data). Build monitoring, analytics, and IoT applications faster, easier, and to scale.

This technically is know as time-series data. With InfluxData you can build monitoring, analytics, and IoT applications faster, easier, and to scale. Today, there are different general purpose ways to handle time-based data. But they slow you down with dependencies and complexities or fail to scale. InfluxData is the only purpose-built complete platform for any time-based data — from humans, sensors, or machines — seamlessly collecting, storing, visualizing, and turning insight into action. With both fast deployment and fast performance, InfluxData delivers real value in real time.
