About Cvent and Couchbase
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.
Moving forward Couchbase is becoming a primary source of truth for a lot of our data and the relational structures make it really easy for developers to integrate.Howard Uman Principal Software Engineer, Cvent
