Moving From Relational to NoSQL whitepaper
Enterprise customers are replacing relational databases with NoSQL alternatives at a blistering pace, and for good reason. Not only are there more types of data – images, video, text, and numbers – but there’s also far more of it. NoSQL databases are built for the data we consume most. Without NoSQL, Oracle and other relational databases:
• Fail to scale data management tasks, which hampers growth
• Fail to deliver data customers want, when they want it, forcing them into the arms of competitors
• Fail to maximize compute and data storage resources, which can crimp margins
NoSQL databases such as Couchbase don’t suffer from these issues and are designed to provide cost-effective performance at scale.
Top 3 reasons for choosing
Couchbase over Oracle
Couchbase over Oracle
Cost-effective and flexible deployment options
With a flexible JSON-based data model, developers can build applications with agility, and without needing a dedicated Couchbase DBA to manage schemas.
Couchbase comes with fully integrated caching and supports data persistence at scale. It also provides a full mobile stack with an embedded database and sync to deliver online/offline mobile experiences.
Scalable platform with high-performance caching
Couchbase is based on a shared-nothing, memory-first architecture with an integrated cacheThe requirements of a good caching layer are simplicity and low latency.
Learn more and memory-to-memory replication. The result is consistent high-throughput performance with sub-millisecond response times at any scale.
Couchbase provides cross datacenter replication (XDCR), making it easy to set up active-active bidirectional clusters across multiple regions. Applications can perform local read and write across regions, improving data latency and availability.
All the features you expect from RDBMS in NoSQL
Couchbase provides the N1QL query languageGet the familiarity of SQL with the flexibility of JSON.
Learn more, a SQL-based query language for JSON documents, and also supports filtering, ANSI joins, aggregation, and more.
Couchbase also supports both single-document and distributed multi-document ACID transactions.
Add it up and only Couchbase provides the flexible data models and ACID guarantees that deliver the performance and high availability you’d expect in modern applications.
