About Gannett and Couchbase

Gannett is one of America’s largest media companies, with systems that are accessed by 96 million visitors per month. The company began considering NoSQL when they experienced network outages and replication issues with SQL Server. Moreover, Gannett wanted a more portable infrastructure at a lower cost. After evaluating several of the top NoSQL players including MongoDB and Cassandra, Gannett chose Couchbase due to its memory-first architecture. Currently, Gannett plans to redesign its architecture in favor of using Couchbase which will support higher read/write speeds, greater scale and access, and cost a fraction of their previous annual spend.
