High Performance With Distributed Caching Solutions: Choosing the Right One

3 ways Couchbase outperforms other caching solutions

You've started with a cache, but it won't end there


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.
