One of the common IT challenges organizations face today is the need to lower costs and consolidate tech stacks. Companies often come to Couchbase to replace multiple other databases that are driving up their overall costs – looking for a solution that will provide more value, higher performance and broader capabilities consolidated into a single platform.

Reducing the number of databases managed can reduce TCO through a variety of ways. For example:

    • Consolidated database technology vendors leading to reduced licensing costs
    • Reduced complexity from no longer administering multiple systems and lowered operational costs
    • Reduction in number of developers needed to manage the databases and freed up developer time from administration tasks  

Couchbase provides industry-leading price-performance at scale by delivering a lot more value at a much lower cost. Here are just a few examples of how Couchbase customers are dramatically lowering their TCO after making the switch to the cloud database platform:’s Edge-Platform-as-a-Service enables customers to build, deploy, manage, and connect edge and IoT devices using industry best practices. When its previous database could no longer scale at a rapid enough pace, Foundries switched to Couchbase and not only saw a 100x performance improvement, but substantially reduced costs when a potential issue that was expected to take 6 months and $100K to address was solved much quicker at a much lower anticipated cost.

Broadjump is a healthcare sourcing analytics company that helps organizations gain better visibility and control over their expense management to lower costs, operate more efficiently, and improve quality of care. When Broadjump was looking to gain features while lowering cost, it switched to Couchbase and saw a 50% reduction in overall storage needs while simultaneously reducing development cycle times and improving query performance.

Gannett is one of America’s largest media companies, reaching a digital audience of nearly 140 million people each month. Gannett decided to move their systems to a NoSQL database for greater reliability and flexibility and as a result of switching to Couchbase, saw a 75% reduction in licensing fees.

Fintech company Revolut’s machine learning-based fraud prevention system, Sherlock, counters the growing threat of financial fraud. Revolut initlally selected Couchbase for its speed, agility, and scalability and saved more than $3M within the first year in production thanks to a 75% improvement over industry standards.
