About Concur and Couchbase
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.
Deploying Couchbase solutions gives us greater scalability and blazing performance (sub-millisecond response times). We now have the ability to simply and fluidly increase capacity, enabling us to seamlessly respond to the needs of the application.Drew Garner Director of Architecture Services, Concur
