The requirements of a good caching layer are simplicity and low latency. But serving up data
faster from your relational database is only one step toward creating a sustainable and
comprehensive solution. Couchbase grows with you to handle more than just caching.

Source of truth
Once you’re caching your JSON data with Couchbase, you can then start to manage your data in new ways without having to use other database caching products. As your source of truth solution, Couchbase
delivers the extremely high levels of durability and reliability required to serve up critical
data from multiple sources to your applications. You can use Couchbase to centralize and query
your datasets at the same time it’s serving as your cache.
System of record
Maintaining disparate systems for caching, source of truth, and system of record is not a
sustainable strategy as your needs grow. Couchbase can readily serve as the authoritative
operational datastore you need because it provides ACID transactions with the high level of
performance and stability your systems of record require. Key features include SQL-familiar
queries, text searches, and deep SQL++ analytics across a range of internal sources.
