About Cox Automotive and Couchbase
HomeNet Automotive, a division of Cox Automotive, is a leading provider of online inventory management and marketing solutions for car dealers. HomeNet deployed Couchbase four years ago because the company needed to scale beyond the 6 million cars it was originally designed for and be able to process anywhere from 50 to 100 million vehicles a day. While the company uses SQL Server hardware, they rely on the speed, flexibility, and dependability of Couchbase to help meet the high-throughput, non-transactional, data requirements. The company first brought in NoSQL as a way to offload operations to Couchbase as a cache and has since made Couchbase the system of record.
What is most exciting to us, is that with Couchbase we started by solving a single problem: speed. With the introduction of new features like XDCR and N1QL, coupled with its unmatched operational support, Couchbase has become our preferred NoSQL solution.Tony Selke Director of Product Engineering, HomeNet Automotive
