    • SQL Server caused outages and replication issues, while MongoDB was difficult to scale
    • User experiences have to work seamlessly across a wide variety of devices and content types
    • Hybrid cloud strategy requires easy database portability
    • Licensing fees were excessive


    • High reliability, simple scalability, and easy manageability
    • Flexibility to easily support multiple schemas using JSON documents
    • Couchbase is cloud native and deploys in minutes on the leading cloud platforms
    • Licensing fees were only 25% of what Gannett paid for SQL Server
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.
