DirecTV is a leader in digital entertainment, serving over 38 million customers with 3,000+ channels. Because they deliver content from a wide variety of providers and for numerous formats, DirecTV required a flexible architecture that could easily support multiple schemas while ensuring high scalability and 100% uptime. With Couchbase, DirecTV found everything they were looking for, plus a SQL-based query language that simplified adoption. To seal the deal, Couchbase performed twice as fast as the closest competitor when DirecTV ran proof-of-concept trials.
"When they introduced me to N1QL, we quickly realized that N1QL offers the flexibility to search with a language that looks like 99% the same as SQL. So for all developers, it was an easy transition."
