As the company behind the industry’s leading event and meeting management platform, Cvent is constantly building new services for its customers. Over time, Cvent’s platform grew into a monolithic application that was increasingly difficult to scale. In order to improve scalability and simplify development, Cvent made the move to a microservices architecture. They chose Couchbase’s NoSQL database as the center of their new architecture because it’s uniquely able to provide the high performance, scalability, and flexibility required for continuous delivery.
"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."
