Amadeus

Today’s travel industry is experiencing rapid growth, high customer expectations, fierce competition, and pressure on margins. Amadeus, the leading Global Distribution System (GDS) and the largest processor of travel bookings in the world, looked to NoSQL and Couchbase – shifting away from Oracle – to meet stringent data management needs within a demanding industry. In 2008, Amadeus implemented Memcached on a MySQL database. By 2013, Amadeus leveraged Couchbase Server for two applications: Amadeus Selling Platform Connect, a website for professional travel agents such as Thomson and Expedia, and the global booking engine, Availability Processing Engine. The company made the complete shift to Couchbase in 2014 and had 800 million passengers travel with flights arranged by Amadeus in 2015. By adopting NoSQL, Amadeus was able to maintain its key/value store architecture, while pushing the complexity of data distribution down into the database level. Today, Amadeus uses Couchbase in seven applications which are able to process petabytes of data in upwards of 2.5 million operations per second.

As a leading medical technology company, BD strives to innovate delivery of health care. Learn how Couchbase Mobile helps them on their journey.

BD

As a leading medical technology company, BD is constantly looking for new ways to improve diagnostics and the delivery of health care. In the case of Type 2 diabetes, a major obstacle to optimized treatment has been the lack of individualized data. It’s too difficult for patients to collect the data, and even when they do, doctors don’t have the time to sort through it all. BD’s innovative solution is a mobile patient app and clinician portal built on Couchbase and Couchbase Mobile. The solution uses connected medical devices and a mobile app to automatically log real-time data on a patient’s insulin and glucose levels, activities, meals, and location. Based on the data, the mobile app provides patients with customized alerts and recommendations. The clinician portal collects all the data and presents it to doctors in an efficient format for making diagnoses and determining the best course of treatment. Couchbase provides the offline capabilities of the patient application and secure synchronization of patient data from the medical IoT devices to the cloud. BD chose Couchbase because Couchbase made it extremely easy to launch the app and portal and to add rules over time as the solution evolved.

Betfair

Betfair, one of the world’s largest international online sports betting providers uses transactional data and operational monitoring in a smattering of applications that serve over 30,000 markets. Historically, their applications have run on Oracle, which they felt was reliable and well known, but had a few issues including impedance mismatch with object-oriented languages and scaling, among others. The company turned to NoSQL for its scalability, fast lookups, integration with continuous delivery, and ultimately, reduced time to delivery. Teams throughout the company began using a multitude of different NoSQL databases including MongoDB, Cassandra, HBase, CouchDB, Redis, and Memcached. In 2013, the company began to question whether the NoSQL solutions they had chosen were the optimal fit for the applications they were being deployed for. They started their investigation by evaluating all NoSQL solutions, adding Couchbase into the mix, and discovered that Cassandra was one of the solutions that was not a good fit for their use case. Couchbase replaced Cassandra in this instance and in their Memcached instance because Couchbase was fast, deterministic, avoided cold cache, and was considered a far better option than their current solution. Couchbase is now Betfair’s strategic document NoSQL solution and processes 30,000 bets per minute, across 140 countries from more than 4 million funded user accounts.

Learn how Cars.com is accelerating product development with NoSQL.

Cars.com

The mission of Cars.com is to be the leading decision engine that moves people through the car ownership cycle with transparent, fun, and engaging experiences. As the expectations of customers continued to rise, the company realized it needed a better database to manage its data assets, flexibly evolve them for new use cases, quickly serve them to consumers, and easily ingest massive amounts of new data on a regular basis. After a rigorous vendor selection process that included demos, proof-of-concepts, and proposals from five solutions providers, Cars.com selected Couchbase in late 2015 and delivered its first projects into production in 2016. Its first use cases were data-rich vehicle listings for an ever-changing inventory of 5 million vehicles, extremely flexible user profiles, and product data and metrics for both internal and consumer use. One of the reasons Cars.com chose Couchbase was for the ability to quickly release new products, and Couchbase passed that test almost immediately when Cars.com successfully capitalized on an unexpected opportunity to develop a cutting-edge vehicle pricing application. Cars.com also likes that Couchbase is fully aligned with its cloud and SOA strategies and will enable the company to continually exceed customer expectations with more new products in the years to come.

Cisco’s VSRM platform supports 100+ billion user sessions per year for cable companies all around the world. See how they leveraged Couchbase.

Cisco

One of Cisco’s many industry solutions is VSRM (a video session and resource manager application), which cable companies use to enable their broadcast, on-demand, and DVR video services. Cisco’s VSRM platform supports 100+ billion user sessions per year for cable companies all around the world. The VSRM product was always very successful, but over time it became increasingly complex to scale, and customers also struggled with the failure rates of their legacy hardware. Cisco decided it was time to move the VSRM platform to NoSQL in the cloud to achieve the scalability it needed and the efficiency, reliability, and performance its customers demanded. After assessing numerous databases, including Cassandra and MongoDB, Cisco chose Couchbase for three primary reasons: It provides very strong data consistency that is comparable to a standalone system. It delivers reliable low latency, with consistent 500 microsecond response times at very large scale. And it provides great scalability in a distributed system. Cisco was also pleased to discover that Couchbase is “like a Swiss army knife,” for its clusters, giving the company a single tool to easily manage and maintain many aspects of its database.

Couchbase's cluster management capabilities give Concur the ability to scale out their cluster with zero downtime.

Concur

Concur implemented a large Couchbase Server cluster, utilizing the Enyim (.NET) client for the web tier and the spymemcached (Java) client for the middle tier. They were impressed with the simplicity with which they could set up, configure, and scale the cluster. For example, the ability to use a single solution across multiple tiers and languages was a huge win for Concur and made Couchbase a more attractive option than other solutions, which required different implementations for each. Using the recommended reverse proxy setup, there’s just a single IP address for configuring REST connections and monitoring across multiple tiers. Couchbase's cluster management capabilities give Concur the ability to scale out their cluster with zero downtime. They also get the added benefit of zero configuration management when adding or removing nodes from their cluster because both the .NET and Java clients are automatically updated when there is a topology change, ensuring smooth and consistent growth of the Couchbase cluster across the entire environment.

Cvent

Cvent uses Couchbase across 8 development clusters and 45 teams to develop and run hundreds of microservices.

Cvent

With online event planning as its primary business, Cvent is constantly building new services for its customers. Over the years, the company’s product grew into a monolithic application that was increasingly difficult to scale. To overcome that obstacle, Cvent started delivering its product as hundreds of individual, but integrated, microservices — and they found Couchbase to be the ideal database to provide the performance, scalability, and flexibility this change required. A driving force behind the selection of Couchbase is its compatibility with Memcached, which allows Cvent to naturally transition its storage to Couchbase over time. For Cvent developers, the transition was just as easy. Because they were already using SQL, they were able to switch to N1QL without missing a beat — and they gained the ability to define their own data with schemaless data modeling, and create their own queries using multiple indexing options. Now, Cvent uses Couchbase across 8 development clusters and 45 teams to develop and run hundreds of microservices.

Doddle

Doddle makes it easier to shop online by providing online customers from any retailer with convenient places like train stations, universities, and stores to pick up or return their packages. Doddle’s original database solution was expensive and hard to deploy – but even worse was the fact that Doddle struggled to provide quality network connections into their 80+ locations in the U.K. Doddle decided to go mobile for more reliable service, but even then access was spotty at peak business times when customers saturated the network with their mobile devices. Couchbase Mobile was the perfect solution because it was more affordable, easier to deploy, and its embedded database (Couchbase Lite) stores data locally, which keeps Doddle’s apps working for their customers and employees even when they go offline. The channels feature in Sync Gateway also allows Doddle to easily regulate what data individual employees can access, which gives them great flexibility to move employees and their mobile devices from store to store. The company started developing on Couchbase in April of 2016, went live in less than three months, and plans on rolling out hundreds of new stores on Couchbase in 2017.

Learn why ebay doubled their use number and quintupled their nodes while handling 80 billion Couchbase calls per day.

ebay

As one of the world’s most popular e-commerce companies, ebay runs over 4,000 database servers to support 18 million sellers and 164 million active users worldwide. ebay has always been a heavy Oracle user, but over time realized Oracle was not the best fit for a lot of its use cases. Quite often, ebay was paying Oracle too much for features it didn’t need, while not getting all the features it did need. As a result, ebay switched a significant portion of its workload to NoSQL, and now uses Couchbase as a combination of key-value store and document database. Couchbase gives ebay the affordable scalability it needs along with very high read/write performance and throughput. A common use case is caching in front of Oracle in order to scale out applications without adding more Oracle. ebay found an unexpected bonus in N1QL (Couchbase’s SQL-like language for JSON), which allows developers to easily adapt their relational database skills to NoSQL. Last year, ebay doubled its number of Couchbase use cases and increased its number of Couchbase nodes 5x while handling 80 billion Couchbase calls per day.

Equifax

In the U.S., the financial data company Equifax is best known for providing credit scores used by lenders to make consumer loans. When the Federal National Mortgage Association announced major changes in their credit score requirements, Equifax had to act fast. The company decided to switch to a NoSQL database to get the high performance and scalability needed to provide 5-millisecond response times in a system handling 1.5 billion constantly changing records. After evaluating Couchbase against MongoDB and Redis, Equifax decided Couchbase was the clear winner. The most important differentiator was Couchbase’s Multi-Dimensional Scaling, which Equifax uses to scale individual workloads separately. Equifax was also able to quickly and easily implement disaster recovery using Couchbase’s cross datacenter replication (XDCR) and master-master replication scheme. The operations team was sold on the power of the Memcached protocol and RESTful API for system monitoring and management. Developers liked the simplicity and flexibility of N1QL, Couchbase’s SQL-based query language for JSON. By replacing Hadoop with RxJava, the development team was able to process 300+ million documents in 40 minutes. Couchbase’s technical support team sealed the deal by partnering closely with Equifax during the intense 24/7 production cycle in the months prior to launch.

LinkedIn

As the world’s largest online professional network, LinkedIn has to monitor and analyze massive amounts of data to ensure its site is available 24/7 for its 500+ million members. As its user base skyrocketed, LinkedIn quickly outgrew the limited flexibility and scalability of Oracle and turned to Memcached to run its source of truth (SoT) store. But Memcached had its own drawbacks, so LinkedIn continued looking at alternatives, including Couchbase, MongoDB, and Redis. Couchbase was the clear winner due to many distinct advantages. Most importantly, it has built-in replication and cluster expansion, automatic partitioning, extremely low latency, it does asynchronous writes to disk, and it enabled simple replacement of Memcached. Because Couchbase was so easy to use, LinkedIn’s site reliability engineers love it, and quickly expanded its use cases to include simple read-through cache, counter stores, de-duping stores, and their SoT store. Within four years, Couchbase grew from a single proof of concept to the number one caching solution within LinkedIn. Today, all in-memory storage in the LinkedIn datacenter is done by Couchbase, and it powers 10+ million queries per second across all servers and clusters.

In 2013, Varolii, a Nuance Communications company, began evaluating backend solutions for its automated notifications product geared toward enterprises. For the previous 10 years, the company deployed an all-Oracle environment, but found that the monolithic platforms were difficult to manage from an engineering perspective. Varolii mobilized MongoDB for a small project which worked for the initial size and scope; however, efforts to expand to a second data center posed challenges with bidirectional replication issues. Upon review, Varolii identified must-have requirements including multi-master database replication, horizontal scaling, open source, and VM support. They evaluated Cassandra and Couchbase which were closely aligned, yet Couchbase outperformed Cassandra in ease of use. Further, Cassandra didn't provide the document database aspect they wanted to leverage in addition to key-value capability, and querying was also much more involved. Today, Nuance leverages Couchbase in their Varolii solution and uses the Hadoop integration to connect SQL-based analysis to the world of unstructured data.

Tommy Hilfiger

In 2015 Tommy Hilfiger revolutionized the buying journey for its wholesale customers by pioneering the industry’s first digital showroom in Amsterdam. In this showroom, buyers could browse fashions for the upcoming season on oversized ultra-high definition screens along with product details, pricing, buying history, delivery dates, and more. The company chose the Couchbase Data platform to power the system because they needed the entire showroom experience to be as high-end as the fashions being showcased. With Couchbase, Tommy Hilfiger knew they would get industry-leading performance and scalability, offline availability, and near real-time data synchronization for a smooth and immersive experience that was always up-to-date and worked flawlessly even if the internet went down. Today the brand has Couchbase-powered digital showrooms in 13 countries totaling 24 theaters and 59 workstations, and plans to expand to over 25 locations worldwide by the end of 2018. Thanks to the incredible efficiency of theses digital showrooms, the company has cut its sample production by 80% at its European headquarters and is on track to do the same around the globe.

Connecting the Internet of Things with Couchbase

Verizon

In 2015, the global communications company Verizon launched ThingSpace, an innovative IoT development platform for its enterprise customers. To enable the real-time dashboards, reports, notifications, alerts, and other capabilities its customers require, Verizon needs a highly available environment that never goes down. Verizon also has to scale the solution to support the exponential growth of IoT devices in the system, along with the unique data and reporting required for each customer. Verizon’s legacy RDBMS simply couldn’t meet the challenge – its response times were slow and unpredictable, stored procedure optimization was overly complex, and time-to-market for new features was too long. Couchbase met every requirement with predictable performance, horizontal scalability, and a flexible data model that makes it easy to add new functionality on a continuous basis. Couchbase’s cross datacenter (XDCR) functionality also makes it easy for Verizon to connect two active-active data centers for high availability. Today, Verizon uses Couchbase clusters to sustain 3.5 million operations per second.

Viber

Viber switched to Couchbase from MongoDB/Redis deployment, halving the number of server and increasing throughput to support skyrocketing demand.

Viber

In late 2013, Viber, a fast-growing messaging platform, was pushed to scale at a rate their backend could no longer support. At the time, the company had deployed 300 nodes – mostly composed of NoSQL competitor MongoDB, in combination with Redis – to address their scaling issues. In 2014, Viber announced its switch to Couchbase given the massive growth and scale the platform was attaining. The company was drawn to Couchbase by its easy and transparent sharding and scaling model, ability to provide higher throughput, and reduced number of nodes required. Couchbase’s unique consolidation of caching and database tiers made the technology especially appealing to Viber. Today Viber continues to use Couchbase to serve 12% of the world’s mobile devices with always-available messaging.

As a leading multinational risk advisor for the insurance industry, Willis Towers Watson is known for providing best-in-class analytical tools and data for its staff and clients. In order to promote innovation and maintain the highest possible standards, the company identified the need to improve the speed, reliability, and performance of its core risk analytics systems. The global analytics team researched a number of NoSQL database technologies and selected Couchbase because it provides high availability through replication and auto failover, the best performance for caching, and a flexible data model for ease of storing unstructured data. It also met their requirements of handling millions of data items and being easily integrated into their existing Microsoft development environment. Because Couchbase is open source, Willis was able to fully test and evaluate the technology before committing. After Couchbase showed consistent high performance and flexibility in a few critical projects, Willis made Couchbase its de facto NoSQL database solution for a wide range of business-critical and customer-facing applications.
