GANNETT - Connecting consumers to content and businesses to customers

Gannett is one of America’s largest media companies, reaching a digital audience of nearly 140 million people each month. After experiencing network outages and replication issues with SQL Server, Gannett decided to move their systems to a NoSQL database for greater reliability and flexibility. At the same time, they wanted a more portable infrastructure that fit their evolving hybrid cloud strategy. Couchbase not only delivered better performance and scalability than competitors like MongoDB™, but also cut Gannett’s licensing fees by 75%.

We looked at multiple NoSQL options including MongoDB and Cassandra, and we really liked the architecture of Couchbase – the memory-first approach, N1QL, and cross datacenter replication.
