About CenterEdge and Couchbase
CenterEdge, a POS product provider for 500 global customers in the entertainment industry, began their NoSQL journey in 2012, when their SQL system crashed on Black Friday. After the load spike meltdown, the team determined that a cloud migration was the next step in their journey. They started by using Couchbase Server to address traffic upsurges — first as a cache and then moving into persistent storage and finally out of SQL altogether. By 2015, CenterEdge had become a beta customer for the latest version of Couchbase and have been at the forefront of N1QL users making operations and development easy in practice and transition. Today, CenterEdge relies on Couchbase for best-in-class analytics in a matter of milliseconds and is in the process of moving completely over to Couchbase from SQL.
CenterEdge delivers the best management solution for the amusement, entertainment, and FEC industries. Our business is growing fast and we need an infrastructure that is agile and can operate at any scale. We use Couchbase as a multi model NoSQL solution, from cache to database. CenterEdge started with Couchbase as a cache to improve SQL Server's performance. Today we’re rolling out additional use cases with N1QL. The biggest advantages of N1QL are simplifying complex queries and increasing developer productivity by easily creating new indexes that are highly flexible and reusable.Dan Cutter Director of Software Development, CenterEdge
